If you want to visit this restaurant with babies, you're simply not welcome. A very friendly message when you want to make a reservation. Very 2016. We have a baby of 9 months that sleeps quietly in his stroller, but apparently this is something the owners dislike. Just for this reason, you'll never see me in this restaurant.

A nice place to eat, off the beaten tourist trap, we had really nice salads here. Friendly staff, beautiful old house with inner courtyard.

This is a wonderful restaurant close to the city center of Ostend! Very experienced kitchen but sadly not always open so check the site for their opening hours...

We took the menu for 38€ (four courses) and it was a delight in all respects. The food was very tasteful and the personnel was professional and cheerful. Ruben made the evening. We enjoyed the Picon with Cava (very well balanced) with an extra appetizer (a wrong order for another table). Then we got the appetizer from our menu with... More

Very nice setting, 18th century mansion, beautiful terrace. Food was excellent,good choice as well. Some small flaws though: the waitress told us that being in seven, we could only have five choices, meaning that two of us had to take the same dish. Moreover, they do not accept credit cards.

Nice location but very poor service! It was the second time we tried it out. And we were again disappointed by the way the 2 young people working there are handling their customers. Making funny faces behind the back of an unsatisfied client is not very professional and offensive ..

it is a beautifull setting, we chose the 35 eur menu: three courses plus amuse bouche and a glass of cava. The shrimp crocquettes where of a good quality, and especially the fish course of griet (Brill in English I think) with pesto and mozarella was great. The desert was a bit of a let down, my wife and I... More

We had a fantastic dinner at 't Grootje Huys' during our weekend in Ostend. Both of us being vegetarians, it's not always easy to find a good place to eat. However, at 't Grootje Huys', they even offered us some additional vegetarian options that weren't mentioned on the menu. The food and the wine were delicious, and the staff was... More
