First time I visited, ad hoc, lucky to book about an hour in advance, which proved to be an excellent idea. The happy hour lasts for two hours, which should suffice to order meals and eat them. The menu (card) is presented in an original...More

Mussels were incredible. My wife isn't a big fan of mussels so she had prawns instead and those were just as good!!

Mussels were good but the sauce or broth base is not that good - missing flavors! I have had better tasting sauces/bases. Especially, the Thai sauce was disappointing. A bit too much salt in the base as well. But the quality of mussels was very...More

Not only is the setting nice and themed (+points for the menus hidden in comic books), but the food is delicious and the menu extensive! I definitely recommend going there to get a taste of Belgium!

69 types of mussel preparations await you here. I had basic mussels and they were tasty - plump and properly cooked. Croquettes were also tasty. A little expensive but worth it.
