The best lunch spots in Nieuwpoort, which is by far my favorite place at the seaside because of the long beach where you can walk to Oostduinkerke, the nice shops, cozy restaurants, luxurious harbor and the nice atmosphere. Nieuwpoort has grown enormously during the recent years as a city so there haven been added  a lot of fun and trendy lunch spots.

In this blog I would like to show my favorites culinary spots in Nieuwpoort!

All dishes are prepared with the necessary amount of love and traditional products are being used. The menu is not very extensive but very qualitative.

Time for something sweet

The best ice-cream parlor of Nieuwpoort

The best place for ice-cream in Nieuwpoort is St-Catherine, with its traditional ice cream and fresh sorbets. Since 1985 this is a specialized ice cream parlour that has charmed me since the age of 2 years. The full flavor still appeals to me today! Who can not get enough of the homemade ice-cream can buy some and take it home.

A luxurious dinner in Nieuwpoort-bad

Restaurant Het Kompas

A luxurious dinner in Nieuwpoort-bad

Restaurant ‘De Roos‘ is ambassador for ‘Het Lekkere Westen’ and is known for its excellent fish dishes. Steve d’Hoedt is head chef of ‘De Roos’ and loves to spoil his guests. He also tries to sell less known fish dishes such as red gurnard, beautiful maid, halibut,… and hopes in this way to broaden people’s perspective of fish. Freshness is very important and that is why the fish is auctioned fresh and delivered to the restaurant the same day.

We chose the ‘grilled scampi’s with fresh salad and tartare’ & ‘the natural mussels’. These dishes are highly recommended!

Address: Kaai 14, 8620 Nieuwpoort

Opening hours: Tuesday and Wednesday closed, all other days open from 11.30am – 2.30pm en 6.00pm – 9.30pm


Beach bars in Nieuwpoort-bad

The trend of beach bars started in Ostend and Knokke, but Nieuwpoort has also 2 great beach bars; Chagall Beach and Barza Bar. In this way they try to attract younger people. Nieuwpoort decided to stay with 2 beach bars because the open beach is one of the important aspects of Nieuwpoort.  Both are located in Nieuwpoort-bad, slightly more located on the side of Oostduinkerke.

Barza Bar

Near Leopoldplein you will find Barza bar, a trendy bar that immediately brings up the holiday atmosphere. With both feet in the sand enjoying a fresh cocktail, doesn’t sound bad, right? Barza Bar also offers an attractive party location for all types of parties.

Opening hours: every summer from 15/03 until 15/10, opened every day from 10.00am – 6.00pm
