The food was awesome, delicious and fresh seafood. The service was good but there was such a crazy number of people trying to order all at the same time that I got overwhelmed.

At Nordzee - Mer du Nord in Brussels you can have street food with the quality of a restaurant! It is located in the centre of the city and we were attracted by the quantity of people queuing (first) and by the great smell (after). You order your plate and then wait and eat it at the starting tables nearby.... More

At this place you feel like you're on a holiday! All kinds of nationalities gather here to enjoy fresh fish food acompagnied by a glass of wine. You get excellent value for money! You order at the outside bar and are called when your order 's ready. You eat standing at a table or the outside bar. Love it! Also... More

The soup is nice and cheap. But the croquettes with shrimps are too expensive and not something special.

Great place for brunch/ lunch. The scampi was amazing. Had couple glasses of wine. Great Sunday place for lunch as most places are not open.

Shrimp croquettes are a typical Belgian dish. De Noordzee is a fish shop that has set standing tables outside. People order a bottle of wine, order croquettes or other fish dishes and just enjoy the atmosphere. A must stop when you are visiting Brussels and you want to take a local bite or takeaway. Good quality, healthy and budget friendly.

It's basically a bar but for seafood. It is a really unique experience, and the food is fantastic to boot. Their grilled clams were my favorite, and all their food had a feeling of being cooked in a backyard bbq. The service is kind of slow though, but it is a pretty popular spot so its expected. Would go again.

Choices were limited Sunday early evening at this great fish stand, but we still thoroughly enjoyed the excellent tuna fillet, fish soup and shrimp. Not mentioned in other reviews is the fact that EVERYONE behind the counter that day spoke English and that they eagerly package items for take-out if the weather is not conducive to outdoor eating and/or if...

Great value seafood for a lunchtime snack. Had the chowder, a couple of oysters and a drink for less than €10. Sure you're eating outside and standing up, but the food and atmosphere is well worth it.
