Nice character, friendly staff, menu not very complex, food was good but not exceptional, portions small to average, not cheap (like most of tourist Belgium).

It's like stepping back in time. The food is prepared on a grill and the meat tasted good. Large portions. Our waitress seemed a little bored and was not very helpfull. The music was too loud for a resturant.

Very nice and cosy grill restaurant in Ostend, not too pricy. Picanha, giant ribs and mixed gril are a must try. They also serve good grilled fish although this is a bit more pricy.

The interior of Den Artiest vaguely resembles Restaurant Pakhuis in Ghent, but that's where the comparison ends. Agreed, both the food (grilled tuna) and the wine were decent; the menu does have some interesting options. Pity the place is rather dark and not quite as...More
