After a day of seeing the sights, Bij den Boer is the perfect place to end your day with a hearty, rejuvenating meal. With the historical Saint Catherine's church and famous shopping street of Dansaertstraat nearby, Bij den Boer is in the ideal location for the weary traveler who wants a good meal close by. Meaning, "At the fish farmer's place", Bij den Boer specializes in, unsurprisingly, all things seafood. Owners Geert Heyvaert and Marnic Malaise recommend the set four-course meal, which changes weekly, but if you'd prefer only one dish, you have plenty to choose from, such as freshly made shrimp croquettes, bouillabaisse with lobster, raw oysters, monkfish with leeks, and baked lobster with thyme. Be sure to make a reservation to save your spot.
