The meal was soon good! To begin with the appetizers (fish soup and fish mousse). The cook knows what tasty means. The presentation was also great. The sunset made it romantic. Gault Millaud shares my feeling about this restaurant!

What a great surprise! :-) When looking for a last-minute reservation after visiting the Davis Cup we based ourselves on a review in the Gault Millau 13/20. Also the name fitted well with what we were looking for. It was the perfect match! Thanks for this splendid dinner/evening.

Located by the sea, if you are sitting by the window you can admire the sunset if the weather permits it. We were lucky to witness it and mainly because we waited and waited and waited and waited so long for our meals... It took over an hour and a half for our steak to be served....and the waitress seemed... More

Dear, We regret your experience in our restaurant. This day was extremely busy, many tables that came in at same time, making the service was a bit slower than usual This may of course not be an excuse. Your order is typed into the computer at 20:36, and the bill was printed at 22:06, 1:30 hour for a starter, main... More

We were searching for somewhere to stop for lunch whilst travelling De Kusttram. We spotted Middlekerke looked nice so got off there and took a little walk along the seafront. As we were out of season and the weather not great it was quiet and a lot of the places which were open looked tired however we spotted this tiny... More

Located on the seafront, with a nice glass enclosed terrace for dining away from the main restaurant. The food served was well presented, and good quality, which was reflected in the price. Pricey when compared with other restaurants in the area. A long wait of at least 25 minutes was experienced between the starter and main course. Worth a special... More

Eat & Sea is probably the fanciest restaurant near the sea side. The food is very good, not excellent though. It's great during summer when you can eat outside with view on the sea. The restaurant inside is rather small and narrow. There's a bit lack of space actually. Service is excellent. If you want to eat just across the... More

Our dinner at Eat&Sea was a great pleasure: Food was very tasty and well presented, service was good and the setting is pleasant. We would rank the quality of food and services well above the other beach-front brasseries in Middelkerke. Prices are a bit elevated, but justified for what you get. Finally we had a beautiful sunset as "extra desert".... More

We've seen on the website that they served king crab. The dish was superb! While being there we saw other people eating a fish dish that we want to try next time. The service and atmosphere were great!
