    Le Grillon: Excellent fresh Seafood!

    by Roeffie Updated Jan 27, 2008

    We went here for a business diner and our host ordered a whole seafood menu. Normally I'm a meat addict so I was very curious about this dinner!

    Just a few persons are able to let me take fish for main course, but Le Grillon convinced me to also take some seafood for a change.

    Excellent adress for seafood! Great ambiance and very friendly people! Mr. Willy Verdonck the restaurant owner knows how to spoil a guest.

    Favorite Dish: I can suggest all their fishdishes!

    Open every day as of 5pm (even when all the other restaurants are closed), close to the pubs and cafes. Located in a small street, very discrete. Always very clean, nice lamps on the ceiling. They have this delicious pita Shoarma, and the taboule is excellent ! They love children (they have at least 3 kids...). I've been there many many times ! Don't miss it !

    Favorite Dish: Mixte Oriental: to die for !

    ' t Zeezotje: ' t ZEEZOTJE

    by Innovator Updated May 1, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The only thing that you have to have is some patience because it is always well crowded (or you have to come early).

    You can eat tagliatelli's, pizzas, lasagnas and also steak-frites,...wide choice.
    Don't forget to watch the board with the suggestion of the day.

    Vispannetje with french fries is very good, also the Lasagna (vegeterian or Bolognese) are great.

    It is not a real restaurant,nor a café,it's called a 'taverne' here in Belgium. It's a sort of between restaurant and café.

    Everybody used to be satified, but now there are rumors, and some friends also experienced less quality (like Garnaalkroketten not filled! and less taste in the food in general)

    Favorite Dish: The tagliatelli Funghi or Seafood are my favorites...large plates well garnished with lots of mushrooms & fresh parmezan (Funghi) or if you take the Seafood tagliatelli, it is well garnished with seashells, and other great seafood.

    Also a new discovery is the Scampi 'Zeezotje'. A plate with delicious scampi's in a superb spicey sauce with spicy french fries! Try it,it's great!!!

    't Zeezotje: Most popular bistro/restaurant

    by Vincedem Written Apr 29, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a very popular place were you can eat very good for 'okay prices'... You can find mainly local people here but because it's very good location you also see tourists there! I think this place is specialised in pasta, but you can eat much more here and everything is fresh (and I can know cos a good mate of me works in the kitchen :) ).

    When you wouldn't feel hungry... it's also a nice place to have a drink!

    Fish market: Chewy stewy

    by acemj Updated Apr 23, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Well, this isn't exactly a restaurant, but along the Vissers Kaai, I stopped at one of the tent-like stalls and bought some fish stew. All of the stalls sell it, so I just decided to choose one. When I walked up to the lady who was dishing it up, I asked what it was and she said, "Fish stew. Do you like spicy or no spicy." So, I decided to order the one with a little kick to it.

    For 1.50 Euros, it was worth trying, but I have to be honest and say that it wasn't that great. There were big chunks of, well, I'm not sure what they were, but I'll describe them as rubbery slugs of some kind. I'll eat anything and the taste wasn't bad, but my jaw was tired after trying to chew these suckers for about ten minutes and I didn't even finish it.

    Next time, I'll order something else. There were all sorts of more recongnizable and scrumptious looking things on sale here.

    Pitta Nür - best Pitta in Ostend !

    by Innovator Updated Jan 8, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a great pittabar with best price / quality pitta's you will ever experience.
    A nice, honest & friendly couple from Turkey opens this essential pitta place.

    You can eat inside or take-away. Sometimes people wait almost till outside the pittabar, cause it has so much succes. A must for a fast take away snack!

    Favorite Dish: Favorite plate : €4.5 (normal)-€5 (large) for a chicken dish with french fries & vegetables.

    Once you tried this crispy chicken plate with french fries and garlic sauce, you will always compare other pitta's with this one and will never be satisfied again!

    restaurant Mosselbeurs: The Best Mussels In The World...

    by miketrudeau Written Apr 14, 2005

    If you like mussels (or have never tried them), this is THE place to go. Well, obviously I can't realistically claim that with any sort of legitimacy, but it is very delicious and hearty.
    The restaurant is a bit kitschy, with all sorts of sea decor, sailing and fishing paraphernalia. It's basically designed to look and feel like a big fishing boat. However, the mussels are so good. I mean, mussels themselves are delicious and this is a pretty good place to go if you want them. Fresh too!
    Steer clear if you're expecting fancy haute cuisine. This place is a lot of fun.

    Favorite Dish: Mussels, obviously. In white wine sauce, with frites, mayonnaise and a delicious Belgian beer to go along.
