What a wonderful restaurant! Quaint, cute but very simple inside. We definitely rate this as the best for all round quality and fish . A Classic no frills family run (by Granpa and Granma) with unhurried attention to detail.

Location ok, a place with a numer of locals at other tables. They have english language menus. .A 3-Course menu looked fine and the soup (bouillabaisse-style fish soup) and the crevettes from the stove with garlic cream were perfect. No real bread was served but slices of whole wheat toast bread, strange! Main dishes: Sauteed cod pieces in cream where... More

I have been coming to this restaurant over the years every time I drive up to the Belgian coast. It is very nice although all dishes aren't equally tasty. The mussels are delicious (I always order garlic and cream). The fries aren't really special. I usually take the menu. The fish soup has never disappointed me and had my companions... More

We first visited this restaurant in February this year and decided to try it again. Once again we were extremely satisfied with the service we received and the quality of the food we ordered. Reviews of this nature are very subjective and depend on the mind set and preconceptions of individuals. I tend to balance my reviews on the overall... More

I had very high expectation after reading the reviews but Le President did not deliver. The restaurant is narrow with tables lined up against the walls. When we entered we looked around trying to decide on a table. The younger waiter stopped our indecision short and told us pointing with his chin: "that table. In order" so we sat toward... More

This is a small restaurant situated close to the beach serving a small but excellent range of food. On passing it looked busy inside which I always consider to be a good sign. This was confirmed on entry when all the diners appeared to be local and known to the proprieters. We were welcomed by an elderly couple who were... More
