when in Ostend,and you want to have fresh fish or a Belgian Bouillabaise without hesitation i go for the Le Chevalier.The family runs this walhala of seafood restaurant.A honest price /quality menu with daily fresh fish and typical Belgian ingredients.The patron together with his team is looking very close the service.
Most of the people(went there at least 8 times the past 3 years) are greated as returning guests (what proves the quality etc.) They really pamper you.The boullabaise is outstanding and "a volonte" .
Difficult to find better in Ostend.Only 2 minutes walk from the Casino direction Themae Palace hotel.

On the beach but without good outdoor seating area. Food was average minus and waiter was abrupt, telling me what I wanted to eat. Dinner came with potato/rice and no option for substitution with vegetable or salad. When my husband pointed out that he was getting risotto with squid (not very good and not prepared as risotto), he was told by waiter that his risotto did not contain rice so no starch substitution necessary.

This was recommended by our hotel, but I still don't know why. It took a long time to get attention of the waiter, who eventually told us to sit at the dirty table which he eventually proceeded to clean. Not a great start. Then the food - I don't remember such greasy meal for a long time. It's not about Belgian cooking, we had great dinners elsewhere. These guys managed to drown anything in huge amounts of oil: goes for so-called grilled fish to frog legs. The waiter only shrugged when we pointed out that fish order was for grilled, not pan-fried. Everything took forever, and the overall feeling was of a waste of good ingredients and waste of our time. There are better places on the same promenade.

We have been going to Le chevalier for over nearly + 30 years. It is still a familiy run restaurant where the Lady of the house is the Chef and the man is running the restaurant. We have not yet encountered a better place to eat. It is great value for money and excellent food !
