No, not all restaurants at the Belgian coast are tourist traps. Here you're in for a treat. Nice dishes, for a fair price, and with a good service !!! It might help if you speak the local language, but I have the feeling everybody is welcome. I had a steak, and the quality and preparation was perfect. If you're in... More

Very warm welcome and 'accompaniment' along the dinner, in a nice environment (we were lucky to sit on the terrace, but the restaurant itself is also very nice). Good traditional Belgian food, very well prepared, at an affordable price.

I stumbled on this little gem while walking through Wenduine. The food was fantastic! I had the Cod with potatoes and vegetables. It is probably one of the best meals I have had in all of Europe (and I have been many places). The seafood was fresh and perfectly cooked.....and they had great service to boot. You will really miss... More

We ate there on a Friday night in Nov 2013 and were glad we had reserved. The prawn croquette was excellent, and the grilled salmon was perfectly cooked. Less choice for my vegetarian partner, who had salad then cheese croquette. Would have given it 5 star, but service was just a little slow. NB the restaurant is in westduine, not... More
