Been there with 17 friends without reservation and we have been served quickly and properly. Bouillabaisse is their speciality and i personally must say (but many of my friends agreed) it is the best reason (not the only one) to have dinner in this restaurant. It was served with endless fresh fish (the gentle lady kept on re-fill all the pots), and really really tasty! Good wine list also..

We reserved this restaurant for a Sunday brunch because we read from trip advisor reviews that this establishment was child friendly. We took the Sunday menu and it was a good choice. There was a kids menu also which my son enjoyed. He got to choose a dessert from inside the kitchen which was a nice touch - and very exciting for the little one. The fish dishes served tasted great (grilled fish, croquettes de crevettes) and were fresh. The restaurant was full so it would be better to reserve in advance. The owner was very friendly and hosted us very well. An excellent experience which I would recommend to families with young children.

Great restaurant! Very friendly service and children are very welcome: with a good quality child menu (veg soup & dover sole filets with fries, mash or rice and an ice-cream that the child can pick out in the kitchen). The fish soup (bouillabaisse) is just unbelievably good and contains a large number of nice pieces of fresh fish. Though a bit pricy, it is very filling and does not call for an additional starter. If you go for a starter nevertheless, the croquettes de crevettes are delicious and home-made. All in all the best culinary experience we had in Oostende and we will most certainly return!

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.
