The Lusitania is a high end restaurant with reasonable prices. It delivers good food and has a varied menu including fresh fish and seafood as available at market. We had the modest set meal for lunch with a good variety of choices.....everybody enjoyed the distinctive, well presented dishes.

Most of the time it's not easy to find a good price value restaurant in a very touristic area. This one hits the bulls eye. we had chosen the fish menu. 4 course meal with a very subtile taste of the sea. Very fresh ingredients and perfectly prepared. service is professional with a very personal touch. interior is a bit... More

We visited this restaurant for lunch. After a stroll through Ostend's lively and colorful market and old city, we landed at fishermen's promenade - Visserskai, facing the boats in the port. We opted for seafood, although Lusitania also serves meat or veggie food. The service was perfect in a classical setting. The food simply delicious - the lovely tiny North... More

Lots of locals see Lusitania as their fine gourmet evening out. We have been there several times and think their set menus are very good value: fresh ingredients, fish playing the main part. Still, they put something creative into each dish, not just the run of the mill 'baked sole' or 'turbot hollandaise'. Professional, if somewhat curt service at times.... More

The restaurant has now a new owner and a new name. Food and service are again -as always-excellent. We liked the presentation of the lunch of the day called" Pure and Basic" We started with a fish soup "Lusitania" followed by fried Ostend Sole ( = like Dover sole ) fished in our coastal waters and very, very fresh French...

The restaurant offers a set 3-course menu for 27 euros. You can choose your starter and your main. I had the bouillabaise for starter and the sole for main. The bouillaise had lots of fish and a lagoustine in it and came with the usual condiments ( bread, cheese and rouille). The soup was very tasty and the portion was... More

Style of this restaurant is a little bit old fashioned. Very small dinner room, you should book in advance. Price are really correct: full menu will cost you 27€. Off course, you have more options. Food is good quality, service is good and fast.

The second time I visited this restaurant. Great service, high quality food and reasonably priced for what you get. Couldn't ask for more. Definitely one of my favorites. Don't miss it.

With views over the harbour, this restaurant delivers on a number of levels. The quality of the food and cooking is superb, all delivered in lovely surrounds by the attentive staff and the owner/chef. The Jewel tasting menu was a feast of local Asparagus, lobster and lamb. The wine list is not huge but contains good wines at sensible prices.... More

With my partner we came to this restaurant on my birthday's eve, on 8th of March, attracted by the cozy interiors. After a cold day on the seaside, and with most promenade restaurants still closed, it looked like the only alternative. But the 5-courses lobster menu we had was indeed a true surprise!!! Very tasty, freshly prepared, with a mix... More
