Eat & Drink

With spring in full bloom and the sun spreading its warm rays, we are ready for spring. After a long winter, we want to break out again and enjoy more light, sun, and of course, delicious food. Terraces are reopening, and hopefully, we can once again enjoy a meal outdoors, surrounded by the lively scents and sounds that spring brings. As lovers of culinary experiences, we can’t imagine a better way to celebrate spring than by visiting our favorite restaurants, where chefs let their creativity flourish and present dishes that embrace the flavors of spring.

Enjoy our selection of restaurants…

Ristorante Marina

Ristorante Marina has been in existence for 51 years now, a fixture in Ostend. Over the years, the Italian tradition has been upheld, both in terms of culinary excellence and outstanding service. The house preparations, the carpaccio with truffle, the sea bream in salt crust, and the generous sabayon still characterize the restaurant. However, new culinary trends are also incorporated into the dishes. Vida joined alongside her father Domenico in 2016. In March 2019, the restaurant relocated to Oosteroever at Hendrik Baelskaai, where she took full control. Here, Vida welcomes her customers with a smile and ensures a complete experience, whether for a business lunch or a dinner with friends and family. The impressive steel wine cabinet translates into a beautiful wine list that everyone can enjoy. In short, benvenuti a tutti!

Vida, Nick & team Ristorante Marina H. Baelskaai 7a – Ostend Open from 12pm-4pm and 6:30pm-11:30pm Closed on Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday evenings.


If you (still) don’t know the difference between a café, bar, brasserie, restaurant, or… a gastrobar, you should definitely pay a visit to ‘Gastrobar Sam’ on Van Iseghemlaan in Ostend. Organic beef and freshly caught fish are the trademark of Gastrobar Sam, but also our famous homemade Ostend shrimp croquettes or our sharing dishes are worth tasting. Sam Vancoppenolle welcomes you warmly.
