A perfect and stylish atmosphere to enjoy the finest grilled meat and fish in town. Very friendly welcomed by the owner, we took a seat down in the restaurant. We had the Nord Sea-menu): apero, shrimp croquettes, sorbet, fish skewer, and an Irish coffee (43€). The homemade cocktail was very sweet (okay for me) - my wife had the cava... More

My wife and I visit Ostend every year and no visit is complete without dinner at De Marmite. The welcome is always friendly from the couple who own and run the restaurant. The service is excellent and the food is to die for! Having said that you won't be in and out in five minutes as the food is all... More

We have been going to this restaurant when we visit Ostend for many years and it never disappoints. Katie and Nikolas are the owners and Katie the waitress and her husband cooks. This time we had the shrimp croquettes which were superb, followed by steak, which was cooked to perfection and just fell off the fork. Not the cheapest but... More

I wouldn't recommend this restaurant to anyone with a tight time schedule as it appears there is only two members of staff who work there and the food does take a whole to arrive when this small restaurant is busy. That being said, when the food did arrive it was very tasty. I had tomato soup as a starter and... More

I went here with a large group (13 I think), and despite having booked it felt like we were an inconvenience to them. I asked if they had any vegetarian options and was told no, since they are a meat and fish restaurant. I understand it is not their speciality, but it is not exactly difficult to put one or... More

A small restaurant overlooking the harbour serving delicious food (as is to be expected in Belgium). Seems to be run by husband & wife & the man does the cooking. The Dover sole I had was excellent, & was a real Dover sole, not the excuse that some restaurants serve. Husband had fillet of pork, that melted in your mouth.... More

My 2 adult sons, my husband and myself went to De Marmite Tuesday 5th Oct 2010. We had the most wonderful meal, we chose what another table had because it looked so delicious and we were not dissapointed. Recommend this restaurant without reservation, be patient as the food is all cooked fresh!
