We loved this little restaurant directly on the Promenade. Extraordinary fresh food at this place. They serve good food different to many of the local traditional restaurants. It is more a mixture between spanish, italian and belgium food. We had a delicious fish soup with home made aioli. Than Spagetti Vongole with very fresh mussels. As well as St. Pierre... More

We arrived at 6.30 for dinner. At 7.45 as the main course had not arrived we decided to leave. The woman to whom I paid the drinks and the entrees was very rude. Never again!

Lovely restaurant on the sea front. Cosy interior but we sat outside. A dry martini to start before we were treated to a masterclass of taste and aroma. A plate almost too nice to eat. Plenty to choose from but we had fish. A treat to eat there.

After having been to many good restaurants on the boulevard of Ostend my family and I wanted to try out Toi Moi et la Mer. I must say that this was one of the most awful experiences we had in Ostend. In summary: slow service, unfriendly personnel, worst beef I have ever had in my life and a management that... More

A birthday meal to remember and not just for the view of Oostende’s amazing sunsets that our table gave us access to! Thanks for the great table by the way. Toi Moi et la Mer really is a place to cross the channel for. Not only is the food innovative, skilfully prepared and obviously from the best of ingredients (my... More

We had the Tête à tête menu and everything - the scallops, the brill, the lamb my wife ordered - was cooked to perfection. But the crabsauce that went with the brill was truly exceptional. It was a pity the young girl who served us couldn't explain a thing about the dishes we were enjoying so much, however, it's the... More

My family (two adults and two teenagers) had dinner on a Saturday evening. Although we initially wanted to go elsewhere but did not have a reservation, we ended up in Toi, moi et la mer. My wife and I had the Menu à l'Ostendaise, a nice three course fish menu at 35€. Shrimp croquettes, a big plaice or flounder, and... More

It's 4th time we eat in that place and each time we had nice surprises. From starter to dessert this is one of my favourite restaurants. It's not cheap but worth the experience.

I went there this weekend with a friend of mine because it was her birthday. We weren't that hungry because we had already been eating the whole day but we still decided on having some fish. It was amazing, very tasty and good and the waiter was very friendly. It was packed so you saw them rushing all the time... More

If you go to Ostend Belgium, and you want to have a taste of the 'goodies' of the sea,go to the Seafront promenade (Albert I promenade) near the Casino-Kursaal, preferably in the evening. This is the place, commonly known as 'Petit Nice' where you can enjoy a beautiful view of sun setting in the waves of the Northsea.Meanwhile , why... More
