The seafood was perfect. The service was also very good, the guy from Maroco (forgot his name) explained a lot to us and helped to make our choice. The only downside is that you are eating outside and there is no tables to sit.

Noordzee/Merdunord added a small new wing to their terrasshop with a choice of three delicious fish sandwiches. For 8 euros you can stuff yourself on smoked macrel salaf, gravad lax salmon, herring and egg salad on a brilliant piece of Danish bread. The guy selling makes just about all the salads and condiments himself and loves doing it apparently. Two... More

Went to Nordzee because of good reviews and always busy-looking bar. After waiting 10 minutes we tried to place an order, but managed to only get a third way in before being ignored by the waiter. He served the soup instantly, but instead of hearing the rest of our order his attention went to three other groups of guests. Another... More

I came here after seeing good reviews and a busy bar outside. It took about ten minutes of waiting to place an order, but the waiter did not even want to hear it completely. Was served a soup immediately, but then the waiter's attention was drawn to about three other guests consecutively. After another 20 minutes, I still hadn't ordered... More

Hot escargots in a lovely broth and perfectly fresh oysters shocked on the spot: it does not get any better than this on a cold rainy Xmas day! The staff are quick and manage the crowd with a smile. Do not miss this spot if you are a seafood lover! Enjoy!

Originally a fishmonger, they serve freshly grilled tapas accompanied with great selection of wine. The soup to start is just heaven. Helps when the weather is nice. I live just around the corner and happy to return with friend or family for a great lunch. It is mostly busy and can sometime struggle to find an empty corner to squeeze... More

I go there quite a bit as I work just across the square. Every time I went I enjoyed food and vine and atmosphere. It's a unic place, for lunch or apero( don't expect to get stuffed). It's a great meeting point in my favourite squre in Bruxelles. Enjoy!

A lunch with friends never to forget. Have the catch of the day or what you fancy from the fish shop; prepared for you in front of your eyes. Sprinkle with some wine. Enjoy this with friends, on the corner of the street, with a view of the most lovely place Sint Cathérine. Most palatable, unforgettable. Don't eat here if... More
