This place is very busy, very popular with what looked like locals and visitors. The place is fine, the menu choice is limited, but from what I saw, looked to be well presented. The service is very good.

Very attractive in the main restaurant. Busy & buzzy, staff friendly & helpful. Food bit limited - snacks or pasta, but well worth a visit

My first time. I received guests from Antwerp who arrived by train. SHort walk across the bridge to this nice place. Very cosy, lots of fire. Bit hot inside but that's better than being too cold. Service is friendly and quick. Will be back.

t'Waterhuis is a fabulous brasserie that is always a joy to go to. If you fancy a really tasty meal they offer a great menu which leans heavily to great seafood dishes as you would expect in Ostend and they also offer a fantastic beer...More
