This is not a restaurant, really more of a seafood stall with tables (no seats!). It is always busy and the staff work frenetically - the main reason for visiting is the cheap seafood and busy atmosphere. I had fish soup, prawn croquettes and mussels. Spread over a couple of visits and several hours - fish soup is served immediately,... More

We had lunch here on 28/08/14, because of the reviews on Trip Advisor. My husband had the fish soup, which had no fish in it, a lot of celery & not much else; I had garlic prawns which were heated to a point that they became chewy & tasteless. We had to ask for bread, the beer was nothing special.... More

The TA City Guides app led us here and it was dope. It's an outdoor restaurant that offers different seafood dishes. Pretty much a fast-food seafood stand... You eat outside. Overall, great restaurant with fair prices. Place was packed.

Great decent sized portions of seafood to share or enjoy alone. And a glass of champagne for only 5 euros. Plus, a lot of fun always.

We were so excited to try this place after reading all the good reviews and couldn't have been more disappointed. Ordered a plate of mussels, paid, and waited for our name to be called. After twenty minutes of hovering around the outdoor counter, and being certain that other people who had come after us had already been served, we asked... More

One of the place's to be.This is a good place if you like to eat open-air, standing on a small table. The menu is simple, don't expect big plates with all kinds of different food.Mostly you can order tuna-steack, clams, scampi, fish-soup...It's the principal of "tapas" but they only serve fish.

We were walking around Place St Catherine when I saw this place and recognized it immediately from reading about it here on Tripadvisor. We were there at 11:30 am and the lines were short. Service was friendly. Food was good. We had calamari, mussels, clams which were all very good, cooked to order. The fish soup was delicious. Menu is... More

If you are into sitting down and be surrounded by ambiance, this is definitely not the place. Buf if you like great fresh seafood and don't mind eating outside...standing, then this is the place for you in Brussels. You walk up to the counter and order your food and then find a spot by their outdoor tall tables, then they... More
