Every dish was delicious even they were unexpected - I ordered the bouillabaisse expecting something pretty rich but learned that there is such a thing as a Northern Bouillabaisse and that's pretty much simple delicious healthy light seafood. Although we mostly ordered seafood, their specialty, the one guest who ordered the steak was very happy with it. Just look at... More

Had a meal here for NewYears Eve, we were concerned about finding somewhere to eat as we hadn't booked however this place was more than happy to accommodate us. Couldn't fault the service, it was quiet when we arrived but by the time we left it was rammed with diners. Friendly staff, and a lovely atmosphere. Would dine again, highly... More

The area is known for the seafood and crustaceans arounf the world - everybody knows the detail with the hat, used for the epty shells! But this restaurant is probably the best representative. Excellent Quality and Service. Prices are kind of high - however this comes very often with this kind of food. All such restaurants in this area close... More

We've had an excellent meal in Les Crustacés in Saint Catherine. We ordered the two menus with lobster and lobster soup and the quality was great, plus it was good value for money. We visited in November.

We went there today (a group of ten friends) and tried their 18 EUR lunchtime menu. I must admit I was surprised by the large choice of the 3 courses. For starters I had pan-fried scallops with a sesame dressing (delicious), my main course was a very tender piece of beef (PAVE DE BOEUF) with a cream pepper sauce, some... More

I visited this restaurant early on a Sunday night, and was among the first customers. The time I needed to wait for an aperitif was quite long, because the staff were just chatting among themselves and playing with their smartphones. They have a menu for a fixed price (25 €, which is very good for Brussels), which is written on... More
