Went here upon passing. Restaurant itself is quite nice. Service though fairly efficient seemed unenthusiastic. No questions asked regarding our enjoyment of the food. Went for the ?25 set menu. Had a starter of gratinated mussels but they were quite gritty so not washed properly. Main of very well cooked, and large tasty fillet of beef so no complaints there.... More

We ate here Sunday evening without a reservation, so we were pleased. Croquettes were nothing to write home about. The oysters were luscious---very very fresh. We both had Moules and they were pretty standard. The wine list was average. Desserts were a bit tragic and uninspired.

After walking around for a while we ended in the restaurant after seeing an offer for a 3 course menu for 25 Eur. We got some cheese and shrimps croquettes (which were simply ok), half a lobster (adding 3 Eur supplement) / beef meat and chocolate mousses. Our mains were both a bit disappointing: slightly overcooked lobster and too well... More

A great lunchtime, value for money experience at 16.5 Eu for a 3 course meal. The lobster was magnificent. Will be back again and soon, I hope.

Had a great meal here, all the food was good particularly the sea food, would recommend. Not the cheapest but worth it for a special occasion.

I have visited this restaurant with my family. We liked the food very much. The atmosphere in the restaurant is strict, not funny( But the food is very tasty. I drank homemade wine, loved it very much. Fish, meat and lobster were delicious. We also had deserts. Ice-cream and Tiramissu were fantastic. This restaurant has got many Michelin stars. Our...

The whole area is highly recommended by the staff in our hotel and the locals. Especially if you like seafood so off we went. Despite our lack of booking on and the staff being extremely busy (Valentine's day) they still squeezed us in after a short wait. Food was amazing, staff were attentive without being intrusive and they didn't once... More

I don't know the Brussels standard for mussels but from where I came from here in Southeast Asia specifically in the Philippines where we are surrounded by vast seas, mussels are so much tastier rather than the one I had here. Serving is also too huge, tastes bland and presentation is average. Barely finished my bowl of mussels.
