Jilles Beer & Burgers

Jilles Beer & Burgers is a bit of an outsider on the Ostend Promenade. Here, you will not find traditional coast dishes, but tough burgers served with a special selection of beers.


At Jilles, you will be able to savour genuine gourmet burgers and will have to choose from a large selection of burgers (chicken, beef, pork and vegetarian) accompanied by French fries and side dishes. Rapidly prepared and served street food cooked with high-quality ingredients and served between fresh and crunchy hamburger buns.

Beer list

The number of beers on offer is truly impressive. Each burger was paired with a special beer by beer sommelier Sofie Vanraefelghem. You should definitely also try the house beers Rostekop and Golfbreker.


The interior is modern and sturdy with industrial accents and reminds one of a genuine New York style burger bar. Salad dressings and sauces are also put on the table in neat little baskets. While seated on the terrace, you will be able to enjoy a magnificent sea view.


You should start by trying a tasty homemade lemonade. Afterwards, we recommend a Sweet Lucy chicken burger with cooked pineapple, salad, cherry tomatoes and a sweet chili sauce. An additional suggestion is the Royal Margaret, i.e. a juicy beef burger covered with melted Emmental cheese, blue cheese, stewed apples, rocket salad and a slightly sweet honey dressing. Moreover, the food pairing with the Liefmans Goudenband, an auburn coloured sweet beer, perfectly matches the blue cheese.
