Located at a stone’s throw from the Ostend Casino, Ocean offers you high-quality brasserie cuisine combined with a fantastic sea view. Experience what it is really like being on holiday!


Leo Deklerck opts for fresh and seasonal ingredients. The menu features traditional Belgian-French cuisine with attention to the use of the proper cooking techniques as well as applying an occasional modern twist or touch. A Chef’s 3-course choice menu is already available at 34 Euros per person.


Ocean’s house wines originate from the Domaine de la Ferrandière in France, whereas the remainder of the wine list features more traditional vineyards. An original beverage you should try is the Ostensche Harlekijn, a clear regional beer produced with Saaz and Hallertou hops and finished with Munich barley.


Modern, fresh, light and stylish are a couple of words used to describe Ocean’s interior. With a bit of luck, you will be able to take a seat on the covered terrace overlooking the sea. A great place to reside and experience the holiday feeling, even when the weather is not all that good.


Ocean serves traditional coast dishes such as shrimp croquettes, cod, etcetera. Highly recommendable are its mussels (depending on the season and availability) and turbot, which is filleted at the table and accompanied by a hollandaise sauce. Something you do not see very often. Furthermore, there is the Chef’s menu, which consists of a starter, a main course and the dessert of the day.
