This is a very authentic Brussels restaurant. There are over 60 different possibilities on the menu for mussels. Huge portions, delicious mussels, great fries served with them, and extra sauces provided. This is a must if you visit Brussels.

Amazing place to eat "moules-frites". More than 60 recipes of mussels for all tastes. Located 10 minutes away from the center of Brussels ("Grand place").

Outside the touristic route, this elegant restaurant is very nice and the plates are really tasty with first rate ingredients. The only black mark is that it is not cheap at all. Around €25 for mussels&chips; we had a stater with 12 gratin mussels (really very savoury) but at €16. We also had been charged for an extra sauce5€. Mussels... More

Hard to go wrong with sea food in general and with mussels in particular, and sure enough Zinneke know their stuff. Large portion dishes (believe a Kilo) with a huge variety of ~70 seasonings and dressings (too much in my opinion). We ordered 4 different main courses all were delicious, however I would recommend going for the dishes that include... More

We had mussels in white wine and also garlic and ginger along with frites and stoempe. My only complaint would be that I wish they had smaller versions of some of the other... More

They know 69 (yes, sixty nine) ways to cook your mussels and by God, do they know how to do it! We've only tried two versions (with Belgian chickory and herbs) and they were both delicious. I would love to go there every night for the next three months and try a new version every time. Served with good and... More

Rapid, good service, typic brussel's decoration, a big choices of mussels preparation, good wine selection, and typic belgian desserts to finish the dinner. Maybe, too noisy if you want to go at 8 pm for a couples dinner on Saturday evening...
