We are going since 17 years and the food is still excellent. The owner is a "philosophe" and know many thing of life. They have nice menu's and if you want you can take them with a wine arrangement. The wine arrangement is good en they don't worry for a glass more. The wine card is also very classic but... More

My husband and I last ate at Olivier's 15 years ago. Dining there last night was as if the clock had stopped, nothing changed. There he was the owner himself, greeting patrons, taking orders and making certain that the customers were pleased. My husband started his meal with the shrimp croquette, while I chose the dozen escargot. Both were very... More

I go to this restaurant everytime I am in Knokke. The menu is full of great Belgian dishes. Choosing for a Menu formula is the best (also with wine). The service is friendly and very family run.

This restaurant, located near the casino and the sea, offers a very traditional Belgian cuisine but with a very friendly touch. The owner, Pascal, comes by your table, and promises to "take care of you". And they do! Hand cut fries, good fish, or steak, and hand whipped cream on the ice cream. Very nice.

It's the institution in Knokke. Best food for sure in Knokke, and an authentic ambience. The owner, despite his age, is still present and involved at the restaurant. A must!

This place smells of old glories: from the gentle attitude of the owner to the snapshots hanging on several walls, depicting celebrities and friends of past times. You quickly realise the age of most of the customers followed on, being the youngest, and yet a father of two grown-ups made me think the kitchen would probably have stopped in time.... More

Friendly service and good food - could recommend the steak - next to Knokke casino and not far from sea front.

This is really a nice little place! It is far away from the normal Knokke attitude, it is a basic nice restaurant with kind service and great food. We had grilled baby lobster which was perfectly done. If you want a fancy, cool place - this is not the place, but a nice meal in a typical Belgian place -... More
