    OOSTENDE VISSERSKAAI

    Favorite thing: Night and day the 'VISSERSKAAI' is a wonderful place to walk and let your eyes feast on what is going on there.......and believe me there is a lot to be seen.

    Strolling around can be so very rewarding and....never forget your camera!



    Fondest memory: having breakfast/luncheon/dinner/tea someplace on the boulevard, where you can let your eyes travel to the horizon and where you can dream of what lies beond that horizon, while listening to the waves and wavelets, the ships sailing by, leaving or arriving...

    Favorite thing: The fish restaurants! Too many to list here and I can't even remember their names, but I am drawn to them on every visit to Ostend.

    Plus, there's a market selling fish and shellfish along the quay where you can buy stuff straight off the boats.

    Favorite thing: For the visitor a stroll alongside the 'Visserskaai' is really a must. When coming from the railway station in the direction of the beach, one can first of all see the fisher-boats that wait here before their next trip begins. There is a large fisher harbor in Oostende. The most important part is the 'Fish-mine', a large fish market, where early in the morning the fresh North-Sea fish is sold to the fish retailers. They sell the fish on to the restaurants all over Belgium. The Oostende fishermen fish on the North Sea, as far as the waters around Iceland.

    Favorite thing: Visist the famous 'Visserskaai', where early in the morning, you can go to the fish-market. This is really a must. When you leave the main road, you can taste all kinds of fish preparations.

    Favorite thing: Just off the main road are numerous fish stands where the hungry visitor can find every possible fish preparation (mussels, crab meat, young herring -'maatjesharing' - and others) to eat while continuing his stroll alongside the quay until the beach. Almost halfway to the beach is a smaller fish market - the 'Vistrap'- where larger specimen can be bought (mainly sole, plaice, shrimps).
    Some typical Belgian fish dishes are: 'Sole à l'Ostendaise' (sole with a white wine sauce and shrimps), 'Tomate Crevette' (a tomato filled with shrimps), 'Paling in 't groen' (eel in green sauce prepared with parsil, spinach and other green herbs).
