“Excellent 21st century resto; no-nonsens style, pure tastes!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013 via mobile

Great value for money; 7 excellent 'tapas' influenced by diverse cuisines (mediterean, asean); fresh & tasty light portion served in an informal well paced style; Michelin star fully deserved!

“successful, daring concept”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

A bit hidden away from the tourist area, near the railway station. Nice decor, with a view on the open kitchen. Excellent service.
Absolutely great food, be it tapas or regular à la carte. Most people go for the tapas menu (extended or not), which is quite attractively priced. We had an appetizer of 3 tapas and then a preparation of ray as main course. Ample portions, no need to go for dessert.
Superb combinations of taste, with a very subtle interplay of spices. Only minus (and hence no 'excellent' quotation), in our case, was that my wife's portion of ray was too salty. Great house coctail (cave topped with an espuma (?) of basil), and a reasonably priced wine-list. Next to some other very fine Knokke restaurants that offer more traditional fare, this place really offers someting new. Big Kudos for that.
A bit of a nuisance: I tried to make reservations by phone, but got voicemail at several occasions. Used the website service instead ... a deposit via credit card is requested to guarantee the reservation.
All in all, a very enjoyable experience though.
