When travelling to Belgium, I believe a detour to the lovely Ostend just to sample the mussels at Kombuis is an absolute must. I have been to Kombuis a dozen times and it never disappoints. One word of warning is they still haven't entered the...More

Very nice and tasteful portion of mussels with French fries. The service though was a little stiff. Also unbelievable that you can only pay with cash. Thought that didn't exist any more nowadays.

Mussels looked fantastic as always, but this time we both ordered a rump steak. Amazing. Cooked perfectly and the service was quick even though the place was very full - as usual. This is a very small restaurant with a take away window to the...More

One of the Resturant that I've ever tried the seafood in. Yeah the decoration is too old and normal Resturant, but the thing that I like is that I guess it's a family Resturant where the family live just upstairs. The food is fabulous &...More
