Look, don't go here if you're like some of these uptight people who have reviewed as terrible. Relax. Enjoy it for what it is. Have a laugh and go with the flow. You all pile in to the bars, they take your order, give you your drink, hussle up on some tables made of upturned stacks of fish boxes with... More

We tried everything on the menu, delicious! Specially the kibelings and the fishsoups ! People of Brussel use to eat there on Sunday. And the scenery is a typic place in Bruxelles, you can get some wine there. You can get some fresh cocktails a mobil shop in the middle of the place.

We were in Brussels for 2 nights, and stopped at this little place 3 times for a snack! Our hotel was 2 minutes away, so we were lucky to find this gem. Over the course of our visits we tried the soup, calamari, croquettes, scampi and scampi in sauce. The croquettes were the stand out highlight for me - absolutely... More

At first glance, it might be a bit pricey, given the informal setting of takeaway seafood, with standing tables. But don't be fooled, this is incredible seafood. The oysters were unbelievably fresh, the croquettes practically melted in your mouth with a burst of flavours, and the fresh calamari was so tender. Oh and don't get me started on the fried... More

Very fresh and succulent seafood dishes with a deli counter for takeaways at the side. We went there at around 12pm and it was already packed with ppl in business suits in line. There are only bar tables and a counter available, no seats. Tried the shrimp scampi, sole fillet & fish soup. All were great but portions are a... More

Eating at Noordzee was a unique experience. First, we joined the crowd in front of the fish bar to place our orders. This took a while due to the long queues at lunch hour, but we managed to distract ourselves with the divine smell of freshly grilled seafood. The staff here were very helpful in explaining the menu items and... More

This place is great. Wonderful, simple menu of fresh fish, prawns and fish soup at reasonable prices. Good place to watch the world pass by whilst enjoying a snack and a beer.

Loved the seafood, tapas style. Great to be on the street in the sun with a glass of wine, good food and fun atmosphere. Try the croquettes and soup!
