This is by far our favourite restaurant in Knokke and surroundings. The house and mill are truly beautiful as well as the very tasteful decorations. The staff is very busy but always friendly. We always eat the contrefilet or the Entrecote. The formula of chasing your own side dishes and sauces is really nice and everything is home made and... More

Excellent service and delicious food and wine. Not much to add really other than a blustery and wet Saturday was improved immeasurably by well-cooked favourites such as croquette de crevettes, entrecôte with pepper sauce and cod. Fantastic wine list. Look forward to a return visit in the summer when it will be nice to sit outside.

Very good service. The food was excellent but when at the finish you get the bill, you'll see that all the extra's have their weight. We had a delicious entrecôte, a very big one, but if you want anything more like French fries or vegetables, you get it as extra. All these extra's make that what you have to pay... More

We went for lunch on a Saturday. It was empty but very welcoming with a fireplace and freshly cut Parma Ham as "Amuse bouche". The menu is a good composition of seasonal produce and fish/seafood. We had partridge as main course which was delicious. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The old windmill outside gives the restaurant a romantic... More

The food was really good, we had the crab and the cote à loss, which were delicious. Also the service was nice. Very laid back and nice to sit there next to the mill. Remember to take cash as they don't accept credit cards. We didn't know, but that wasn't an issue, they were kind enough to give us their... More

I am a visitor to Belgium and after having a very enjoyable meal, I was embarrassed to find out that, as I was the host, that I was unable to pay my bill by credit card. Luckily the persons who I had invited were kind enough to pay cash on my behalf. I have understood that by law, the restaurant... More
