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

Nothing extraordinary to look at the facade of the Kombuis restaurant.. You enter the restaurant by a small kitchen, and climb a few steps to access the dining area. That's fine, because, from there, this is heaven! The place is really clean, friendly (and family-friendly)....More

Perfect place for mussels/moules/mosselen. Simple, but excellent. Open kitchen and authentic. Every time we visit Oostende, it's a must to visit Kombuis.

I was recommended locally to try moules/frites here. It is a simple restaurant, paper tablecloths, and frequented by locals. The moules were excellent but not cheap (24 euros with frites) but the portions of both moules and frites were too big for me and could...More

If in Ostend, and in the season, there is only one place for mussels: 't Kombuis. Not a star restaurant, but more authentic eatery, sitting just behind the open kitchen. Apart from mussels also nice for soles and other NorthSea fish, as well as for...More
