Every year we visit Ostend in February, combining sight- seeing with a good meal. This year we choose Lusitania, a very well known and popular restaurant in Ostend. Glad we booked there. We enjoyed a very good 4 course dinner for 37.5€! More than worth its value. You have a very fine choice between sea food en meat at a... More

We called for a late booking, and after some studying of the possibilities were offered a table for 6pm with the understanding that we would be ready before 8pm when other patrons would come. Reasonable arrangement and gave ample time for a three-course meal, promptly served, yet never rushed, and of first-rate quality.

Being a monday night there was not much open. The restuarant I originally booked was closed and they called me and recomended this one instead. We were not disappointed. the setting of the restuarant is classic and sophisticated which is nice when you are opting for higher end meal. we opted for the seafood menu which was excellent with ideally...

The Lusitania is a high end restaurant with reasonable prices. It delivers good food and has a varied menu including fresh fish and seafood as available at market. We had the modest set meal for lunch with a good variety of choices.....everybody enjoyed the distinctive, well presented dishes.

Most of the time it's not easy to find a good price value restaurant in a very touristic area. This one hits the bulls eye. we had chosen the fish menu. 4 course meal with a very subtile taste of the sea. Very fresh ingredients and perfectly prepared. service is professional with a very personal touch. interior is a bit... More

We visited this restaurant for lunch. After a stroll through Ostend's lively and colorful market and old city, we landed at fishermen's promenade - Visserskai, facing the boats in the port. We opted for seafood, although Lusitania also serves meat or veggie food. The service was perfect in a classical setting. The food simply delicious - the lovely tiny North... More

Lots of locals see Lusitania as their fine gourmet evening out. We have been there several times and think their set menus are very good value: fresh ingredients, fish playing the main part. Still, they put something creative into each dish, not just the run of the mill 'baked sole' or 'turbot hollandaise'. Professional, if somewhat curt service at times.... More

The restaurant offers a set 3-course menu for 27 euros. You can choose your starter and your main. I had the bouillabaise for starter and the sole for main. The bouillaise had lots of fish and a lagoustine in it and came with the usual condiments ( bread, cheese and rouille). The soup was very tasty and the portion was... More
