We visited here one chilly evening in November. Most other diners were local Belgians, which was a good sign at the start. The inside is light and spacious, with a pleasant modern feel. The food is mostly local Belgian specialities, with a slightly unexpected section of Thai food. I had the Pot au Feu, an excellent beef stew, while my... More

The place is al right, nothing fancy, average food and typical dishes, the staff could be more friendly and flexible.

The restaurant is located on the beach walk of Oostende between the casino and the Thermal Palace hotel, the most beautiful piece of beachwalk at the Belgian sea side. This is a nice restaurant not only for tourists but also for locals. Good brasserie kitchen with fresh ingredients. Nice service

My colleague and I had dinner here last night and in line with my 'evening experiences' the food was great (I had a delicious Thai curry) and the waitress was charming. 100%... More

The restaurant has a modern feel to it with excellent food. The staff is attentive. It is usually crowded so booking in advance is advisable. Fish and meat are recommended. Trendy atmosphere.
