“Very Terrible Afternoon”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2010

We had a terrible afternoon at Siska's.
My wife and I sit in one of the beautiful gardens overlooking the sculptures and surroundings.
A youngman toke up our simple order of a Coke and a tomatojuice.
In a several minutes a other put a simple glass of juice(without tabasco etc.) and a bottle of Coke with a straw (please, I'm adult !) and no crips or anything to nibbel. (that's normaly in Belgium and by Siska too)
The coke was not cold, so I ask a glass with some icecubes. The waiter could not understand Flemish very well, iff I could speak French please ,he said in French.
I said to him that I never speak French in Flanders.
A maid translated, but he goes on and on in French.
(I couldn't understand much)
He went away and came back with the bill(!) € 6.25 orso. We now had to pay.
We hadn't drink at that time so we left the table and go out of the garden.
Now the youngman came after us and said that we have to pay.
I ignored him and said that we not pay because we not getting icecubes (not even mansioned tabasco)
He don't let us go and walk with us on the street..
He graped my arm and I said to go away.
The whole time he spoke French.
He would call the police and I said please call.
Instead he called with his chef (red: on FR1 news-television /youtube you can find I item about knokke with this man in a short interview)
Now he hold my wifes wheelchair and she now was in tears because she couldn't move anymore and my he called a racist because I refused to speak French.
The chef/manager came and he only said PAY,PAY!
He wouldn't listen to my side of the story and would have € 10,- now ! He wanted to hit me with his fist, so I run away.
Now the 2 try to ride with the wheelchair!
€ 10,- now ! the manager sreamed.
And he would take my wifes bag from here.
Meanwhile I toke a note of ten euros out of my purche and give it to him. I was terrified!
They went away and said I wasn't a good husband for my disabled wife.

We never never go back ! We live in Knokke and normaly we occacionaly visit Siska for the gardens and wafles. The last years sometimes we go away because we couldn't order anything and have to wait longtimes. But this time it was terrible.

Please look out before you go visit Marie Siska at the Zoutelaan in Knokke Zoute.
I saw many negatif reactions on this site.
It's a pitty , because it is a lovely place to be.

My wife (medical doctor) and I (lawyer) went to Marie Siska for having lunch. The waiter gave us a table in the sun as we requested. Unfortunately the table being for four the waiter's boss, after we ordered, requested to move to another table in the shade ... He indeed wanted to use the table for three other people... We kindly answered that we would do so if he could find us another table in the sun. After all he gave us the table and even let us order...He bluntly asnwered that if we did not ot move we would not be served. I obviously complained and he then responded that next time I should truy to buy nicer clothes for my wife...

As a reminder this place is located at the seaside and some people don't go dressed in Gucci and Armano for a walk on the beach.

Conclusion: the management of this place believes to be God on earth and will remain friendly as long as you don't contradict them, spend enough and look bright. This is the first time we are treated like this and needless to say we will never return.

Stayed September 2009, travelled as a couple

Everything went well till my wife wanted to play with our daughter on playground. she sat on a chair belonging to another table, which was free, and the waiter came yelling at her and told to turn the chair around.

==> my wife went to the manager and he told her to go to hell and we wouldn't be served there again....

what is going on?????
