“Unique spot on the Sea Promenade”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2012

Unique "vintage" setting on the wonderful Sea Promenade of Ostend. Great food, little bits and tapas. Local seafood. Great cocktails and the best coffees in town (2 qualified Baristas). Not the usual touristic bar, but a real "feels like home" brasserie with sea view.

“Favorite spot in my home city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2012

Of all places I like to go to enjoy the beautiful view of the sea, i adore this venue the most! Prices are good and the drinks and foods are top quality. Taste the meatballs (with the tapas) , they are delicious!
Also you'll always get a service with a big smile and a polite answer to all your questions! The waiters know what they're serving.

“Your out-of-home living room with a better view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2012

It's a really nice & cosy place with a charming interior! I went there with friends and by myself. It's the kind of place where you can spend a whole day and evening.
And there you have an amazing view on the sea and sunset.

I can spend a whole day there by myself reading a book with a bottle of wine and some tapas (their Histoires Tapas Dish is really worth your money), always nice jazz, soul or so playing. They even have board games, always fun to play scrabble after a couple of drinks ;) We all had a different pasta and all was very tastefull.

“Gotta love the food, the view & the atmosphere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2012

Excellent to have some tapas after a good walk along the beach, or to have dinner before a night out in ostend!
The brunch on sunday is a must do!

“Great food, nice vintage décor, seasight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2011

I went here two times with my family, one time to have dinner, the second time to drink something after a nice walk by the sea. I had a scampi salad which was excellent. You can sit inside or outside, with a nice view on the beach and sea. It's pretty small in the inside, which makes it, in combination with the old-style furniture, very coisy. Had a lovely evening!
