Storm in Oostende

Virtually every chef has his or her own kitchen garden. So do I, only mine turned out to be a bit larger than most … the North Sea. At Storm, we introduce you to the known and the lesser-known fish species from the North Sea.

Oosterstaketsel in Blankenberge

What you’ll find on the menu in our restaurant will largely depend on our fisherman. He knows exactly which fish to serve when. We cook what he catches. Sometimes we serve fish species the wider public wouldn’t be familiar with, a case of unknown is unloved you could say.

Le Homard et la Moule

My love for sea vegetables, seaweed and algae, and all the other stunning produce the North Sea has to offer, started many years ago and has grown as time went on. After all, the sea, the breakwater and the dunes are my back garden. Now, where would you come across a finer garden?
