Is this restaurant the Rolls Royce of Ostend gastronomy or just simply a couple of hard-working people with a nose for all the delicacies the sea has to offer? Bentley's succeeded in winning our hearts right from the start.
Finding a chef able to combine the best of both worlds is not easy at all. On the one hand, Bentley’s continues to offer traditional dishes such as North Sea sole and shrimp croquettes whereas on the other hand, it goes in search of new and alternative dishes such as rabbit ravioli and Barents Sea crab. A very popular dish among tourists, costing a mere 35 Euros, consists of shrimp croquettes, fried sole and a dessert.
One of Bentley’s suppliers is the famous wine importer La Buena Vida, which resulted in an interesting and exciting wine list featuring Spanish newcomers as well as French classics and South African surprises. Although the wine list is fairly limited, we feel that, from an economic point of view, this is a positive feature. You should definitely try the house aperitif: cava mixed with a splash of Liefmans Kriek.
Warm, stylish, intimate lighting, focussed on creating a cosy atmosphere in which customers are pampered in congenial surroundings. During the summer months, you can admire all those visiting the city of Ostend.
An appetizer consisting of a broccoli espuma, oysters and couscous and a clear shrimp soup. Deliciously crunchy and crispy megrim sole goujonettes with homemade tartar sauce. Sea bream with mustard sauce and a couple of nobashi shrimps and immaculate sauerkraut. Bentley's constantly endeavours to uphold a very high food standard. Dessert: a chocolate moelleux that passes the litmus test with flying colours.
