Restaurant Belle de Jour was born in 2013 out of Els Vanbiervliet’s passion for art, food and bringing people together. Her goal: to establish more than just another average culinary haven at the Belgian coast.
Every day Belle de Jour offers a varied seasonal menu inspired by the moment, apart from some classics with a twist.
They have a special eye for à la minute preparations with fresh produce, brought in from the North Sea and Rungis International Market, local organic vegetables and top notch all natural beef.
Try the sea menu now that you are in Ostend or order à la carte and leaf through the extensive wine list. But most importantly: make yourself at home.
The restaurant is open from 18:00 every evening from Tuesday till Thursday. From 12:00 in the afternoon and from 18:00 in the evening on Friday and Saturday. Closed on Sundays and Mondays. Make sure you book a few days in advance as it tends to be busy.
Group dining and private hire, followed by lunch or dinner: minimum 12 persons.
Get comfortable and enjoy the refined, farm-fresh cuisine of chef Els Vanbiervliet. Maître Jeremy Levecke, partner in crime since 2016, is responsible for the overall dining experience. As a team, Els and Jeremy very quickly became a permanent fixture for those who appreciate art, culture and authentic cuisine.
