Very small family run resturant but without a shadow of a doubt have the freshest and best mussels in oostend, and for those that arent too keen on sea food there is a large selection of land dwelling animals on the menu. Highly highly recomend.

I noticed this place on TA and fortunately gave it a try. This is a small local restaurant/friterie that looks awful on the outside and not much better from within. If it hadn't been for a couple of locals giving the thumbs up sign while...More

Rain or sunshine this "boardwalk" is always crowded with people looking for a pleasant day and vacation feeling. Lots of restaurants to choose from or just an ice-cream? Also waffles and pancakes with seasonal toppings! Easy walk from the train-station and parking under the casino.

No-nonsense place with excellent food. The interior is not fancy, but the place has an authentic feel and the food is great. We both got a huge portion of mussels, with fresh fries and homemade mayonnaise. Half a liter of San Pellegrino for 3,20 euros.
