My friend and I were looking for something reasonably priced and local, and we found a very friendly staff inviting us to the place, so we decided to give it a try. We picked the lunch deal - it's cheap and included 3 courses. The portion was good, and to be honest we did not want to try the local... More

Even if the price was attracting, dishes weren't good at all. Moules barely acceptable, industrial gauffre, a water bottle 5 euros. What?!

My mistake! I didn't read the reviews on Trip Adviser. It was the first evening in Brussels and the guy from the restaurant told me that is the best place for me and the two kids to eat. He told me they served pizza, lasagna and also fish and sea food. The first drink was from the house, of course.... More

We got a mixed seafood plate and a bottle of wine between two and were charged 134 EURO. I cried in front of them couldn't believe it, they never advertised any prices and it was too late to realise. While we were there another couple sent back their food and refused to pay and left. I feel like our holiday... More

I began to read the reviews after ordering my seafood platter, so I was ready for disappointment. Yes, the menu prices are ambiguous at best, but I got a reasonable pile of food and left satisfied. For the money it was pretty poor value, but in a tourist trap like that it's expected. But I can't really fault the food... More

I too am ashamed to admit to being conned by seemingly 'service driven' manager..no prices on menu, deceptive offers, by the time you realise your horrible mistake its too late. Service is slow and indifferent after you order and the Food is average at best..€95 for bland seafood platter, frozen veg and 2 waters!! What a ripoff! Avoid the whole... More

Cozy looking place, but the food was quite bad. Got stomach problems from their mussels. They tasted old and the tecture was mushy. I could eat only 1/3 of my portion.

Before traveling to Brussels, I new we had to try the seafood there, its the highlight of their cousin. So we walked along this street where there are many restaurants. The guy outside did his best to convince us to go in. It was a bit early, around 7 pm, so there was nobody in the restaurant. He promised that... More

The €10 mussels lunch becomes €21.50 if you allow them to cook them in garlic or white wine. Those were the only two choices provided. avoid like the plague!!!

After a very seviceminded and positive guy convinced us to eat at his restaurant, it went downhill. Lunchtime at a tuesday, very little people and they serve cold lasagna... Think they warmed up a bit, and you could see that the cheese wasn't melted. The waiter seemed indifferent. My friend was happy with his oysters.
