Amazing variety of mussels

We walked in without a reservation on a rainy evening but the host was happy to find us a table. The menu has other options besides mussels which was perfect since I love these little things but my husband is not a fan. He ordered a chicken platter which he enjoyed and I ordered a big steaming pot... read more

Just finished an absolutely delicious meal at Le Zinneke. We had a shrimp and carpaccio starter before mussels w/frites that were absolutely amazing. I had a simple bowl of mussels in white wine sauce that hit the spot and my husband had a bowl of mussels w garlic, tomatoes, hot peppers, and tarragon that was also delicious and cooked to... More

A great place. 69 types of mussels recipes. From normal to spock and ending with 69 erotique mussels. All the products are slow food, local or bio. They have a good choice of beers, also bio. The menu is original, the food and service excellent. The only place.to go when you like mussels. But you better book before going.

I had visited this place couple of years ago tempted by the +60 mussels recipes they had. I went there and I really liked it. A week ago, a friend wanted to bring an American friend to a traditional Belgian moules place and I recommended the place since they didn’t want to go to the touristic area in the city... More

Been there twice, amazing moules frites with a lot of choice. We appreciated both the service and the cuisine, and very good value for money. Unfortunately, the last time we went there I got intoxicated. Don't know if it was the moules or the mayo or the dessert or whatever, but I felt something was wrong immediately after I finished...

Mussels are good and the fries as well. The service needs a bit more attention. Overall a good dinner but not to the level I was expecting

My wife and I went on a Saturday night and had an awesome meal. We both ordered mussels and a liter of house red wine. Both mussel orders were excellent. The service was very attentive. We had a wonderful meal and time. We will return another time.

Yep, this place does a pretty good moules frites. They don't do much else (though I did have a beer stew to mix things up a bit, and that was decent). It wasn't cheap and it wasn't the best I've had, but the service was friendly and the menu was pretty impressive (see my photo of PART OF the moules... More
