Decent Seafood

We came here because of the satisfactory reviews in tripadvisor. I have ordered shrimps, soup and some fried seafood in a plate. They were quite delicious. I would not say it is a good value for food, staff are friendly but they do not speak good English.

We were wandering through Brussels and came upon this corner with a bunch of people standing at trestle tables eating seafood off of actual plates. We were hungry so we got in line. After figuring out how to order and what all the yelling was about, we had the fish soup, razor clams, shrimp croquettes, and shrimp. And some wine.... More

This is probably the best fish-street-food place in bruxelles. Excellent kibbeling, and superb croquettes de crevettes grises, grilled scampi etc... Small choice of white whine. It is not particularly cheap for a street food place but the quality is comparable to the top-fish restaurants nearby , which would cost you 2-3 times more. The place is constantly over-crowded and you... More

A great place for a light seafood snack and a glass of wine. This is a lovely little place for some street food frequented by tourists and locals alike. There is something really enjoyable about having a little bit of seafood out in the open air accompanied by a glass of chilled wine or champagne. The razor clams are always... More

I had my last meal in Brussels there, and while the food in Belgium is great, this place was by far the best. I had fried mussels, razor clams, oysters, grilled mackerel and a cevice. What a meal! The cevice was not special, but everything else was amazing! Lucky me, I arrived early and there weren't a lot of people.... More

Order, fee dishes so that u can't be confuse... Wait for them shouting your name and meanwhile drink some freeze wine: it's ok even if it's cold. Fish is good, and the whole atmosphere is so characteristic that you cannot miss this place if you pass through bruxelles

Great fresh seafood and lots of fun. Appears chaotic but it's all part of the experience. Visited 3 times and my order has always been correct and cooked to perfection.

It was cold and windy but there we were outside eating batter dipped fried fish chunks, hearty fish tomato soup and drinking blonde beers all for a reasonable sum

In the neighborhood of fishmongers one can get quality seafood here, within minutes. Try the soups for only 5 euro, or visit the oyster bar just next door that sells 4 different species.
