Great cooking for an honest price. We have eaten there already several times and if it's a simple steak, salad with prawns, salad with goat cheese, ... they always deliver a very tasty product.

A very classy joint for an evening meal, service, meal and cost not too expensive 20 euros each for Belgian beef steak, pumpkin soup and crab aperitif (not in that order!). Located in the central square in Oudenburg with parking right outside. Tastefully decorated to a very modern standard with a broad selection at the Bar.

I had large prawns in a Lobster sauce-excellent followed by the most unusual Greek salad ever- Lots of greens Feta, olives etc topped with deep fried Calamari rings and fish goujons---very tasty and not too expensive. The menu was not available in English but I managed quite well and the bistro is very popular with the locals
