“Fantastic Evening!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2014

We vistied Oostende for one nigh and chose this restaurant based on the reviews - we were not disappointed.

From the moment I emailed to request and reservation, to every stage throughout our meal the service was exceptional, equally matched by amazing food! Would recommend the house red - a bottle of Laurent Douchy Merlot.

Highly recommend this restaurant - a must vist in Oostende!

“Excellent food and great service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2013 via mobile

We went to eat at this place during our visit to Ostend, on Dec. 27th. I originally chose this place because of the many great reviews here on TripAdvisor and I must admit that the restaurant easily lived up to the expectations. We started out with something small to drink and it immediately became clear that the owner(s) had a sense for detail! The meal itself ( 3 of us had a fondue and 1 gourmet) was outstanding and delicious. I can highly recommend that you try the côte du Rhone 'Les Rabassières'. It was reasonably priced, and I was pleasantly surprised by how good it was!

All in all, a great experience and I will very likely return on my next visit to Ostend

“FANTASTIC”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 October 2013

Having read the reviews on tripadvisor felt that we must visit this restauarant. We arrived, the first people in the restuarant and were shown to our table. We were welcomed like old friends, asked about drinks and given the menus to peruse. When our drinks arrived, we were asked whether we wanted help with the menu and the only question I had was where could I buy the complimentary rillettes! We decided to treat oursleves to the Royal Fondue and although the most expensive item on the menu for this once blue moon treat it was worth every penny. At the end of the meal I felt that it was not complete without treating myself to one of the famous Irish Coffees and it was worth every penny - from the showmanship of the coffee being made to every last drop in the glass. Unfortunately we had not read the small print and had not noticed the restaurant did not take credit cards or english debit cards (a fact that we discovered was common of most restaurants in Ostend) but a quick trip to the bank soon spared our blushes and the hosts were very understanding - what could have been an embarrasing moment for us was extremely pleasantly dealt with. This is certainly on my list of must visit restaurants again.
