A titanium enclosure and a high-tech look in general announces a different tack to the usual Ostend emphasis on old-fashioned elegance -- new-fashioned elegance, with big chandeliers and wall mirrors. Maybe a bit too smart and cool for its own good, but it compensates with a fine sea view. Ostend sole and seafood on the skewer are featured, and there's an outdoor terrace for fine-weather dining. If you're up for eels, try the paling in 't groen, eel in a grass-green vegetable sauce. More ordinary items on the menu include barbecue-grilled cod and salmon, and shrimp croquettes, a good starter choice.
