Many seacoast restaurants specialize in seafood, fresh off the boats from catches landed daily and prepared by chefs who have a long tradition of treating the fruits of the sea with respect. Local specialties include sole à l'Ostendaise (Ostend sole), waterzooï op Oostendse wijze (a creamy, souplike fish stew), gray North Sea garnaalen (shrimps), and garnaalkroketten (croquettes made with those shrimps).
