very well located and place to be. The most important here is to be seen.The terrace is nicely located but all tables and chairs are extremely close to each other. You can barely move. The specialty of the house are shrimp croquettes. They are good, indeed, but you can find same in many other places on the Belgian coast or... More

During Easter we spent 3 days in Knokke. Different to the rest of the country we had very good (but windy and chilly) wether. It was than, that we visited Rubens several times. The atmosphere in this Brasserie together with the friendly staff creates this feeling of beeing welcome. The menue offers a tremendous number of various meals - small... More

After a long time waiting (why?) we went back to taste the delicious "croquettes crevettes" (gray north sea shrimp croquettes). Price/quality these are superb. Alot of restaurants at the see side offer them but for us this is the place to be.

We were 11 persons and although we ordered the table only at 8.30pm we got a very nice table on the covered, closed and heaten outside terrace. We arrived around 9 and the place was packed. We enjoyed the friendly and very professional service and the great food!

Long wait for a menu. Then the waiter asks us to move to another table. Or more precisely to the lounge. For food? Never again. Plenty of better places around.

Very nice atmosphere, but incredible rude service. Went here on a sunday afternoon. Large menu, got a very nice table. My boyfriend wanted to have mussels, I wanted to order a large salad (which was on the menu as a full portion - not as a side dish!). The waitress (elder lady) told me, I cannot only order a salad,... More

Visited Rubens on a wet October evening in a party of 12 golfers. Great food with attentive, friendly service and a busy, buzzy atmosphere. Not cheap at 70 euros a head, but we did havee 9 bottles of (house) wine! Highly recommended.

My friend took me here for my birthday whilst we were on holiday in Knokke. She booked online from England which I would recommend as the restaurant is always well patronised and it's not always a pleasant experience when one has to wait in line outside for half an hour or so to get a table. We started with soup... More
