Delicious food and very good value set menu choices. Friendly service. Came here on our first visit to Brussels and despite the great choice enjoyed it so much we decided to come back again the next time we were in the city.

The food was really, really good. I booked a table with TripAdvisor for 3 pers. Our young daughter had a main course + dessert and me and my husband both had a three course dinner. Still, we did not receive the 30% discount that the restaurant should have given. We did not say anything to the manager as the restaurant... More

We were two and we had a good fish dinner. The atmosphere is nice, lights are a bit strong, but the people are very friendly and efficient. The entire area where the restaurant is located is worth the visit.

Great stop for lunch on a cold Saturday. The fish soup and the cod in beurre blanc were excellent and so was the Pouilly-Fume recommended by our waiter. We could have done without the country radio station playing, however.

My husband and I ate here during our last night in Brussels on holiday vacation. We walked down to the Fish Market area and stumbled across this gem. We are so grateful they were able to seat us because the restaurant is highly acclaimed and we had no reservations. We were welcomed and seated quickly. The wait staff was very... More

We went to this seafood restaurant as a group of four friends on New Years Eve at lunch time. There was an oyster bar outside catering for passers by from the winter market. That was our main attraction. We were greeted by the waiter and got the only free table at the front of the room beside the window. It... More
