Great seafood

Good choice for fresh fish & seafood - limited options if you don't like fish. Service attentive, knowledgeable & friendly. Oysters, lobster, mussels, well cooked fish dishes and good wine. Very good value set menus.

Always have a concern about walking in to a tourist trap and given this is right on the St. Catherine strip where the German Market is held, I was skeptical. However this is a decent restaurant with great seafood and for pretty decent value. We had a few starters to share followed by a couple of kilos of mussels, lobster... More

This place serves excellent seafood. We ordered the set menu that serves shrimps, mussels, grilled fish & dessert for about 25 euros. Worth every cent! Food is great, ambience was perfect. Service crew was slightly inattentive but overall it was fine. Worth a visit.

Absolutely superb. We stumbled across this place next to the Christmas market in Ste. Catherine. It was fantastic. We noticed a board outside for 3 course lunch at €15.90 each, including sea food mini platter for starter, 1kg of mussels for mains and roasted fresh pineapple for desert. We couldn't believe it! Mussels alone were €20+ anywhere else. They were... More

First, I had to admit that a place like this has a different review scale. Being an ordinary restaurant it would hit 5 stars. Being a renowned top notch place it has to BE 4. Had scallop carpaccio as a starter. Never tried that, but that was good, even very good. My main, king prawns, was even better. Other took... More

A very good fish restaurant in the centre of Bruxelles. Nice atmosphere and very good fish food. The price is not cheap but in line with the wuality of the food. Mussels and Oysters are really great. I would suggest visiting.

If you like seafood, opt for the mixed shellfish starter. It came with fresh off the nearby iced fish stall and included an impressive range from winkles and mussels to oysters and large prawns - and all this on the set early bird menu. Each course was fresh, tasty and sensibly proportioned. The service was ok. The setting was very... More

You can tell a place is good when it is almost full at 7pm on a Thursday while other restaurants nearby are empty. Seriously good seafood - great prawns and mussels - and excellent beer. I was staying at the Citadines across the road. Really glad I came here.

Oysters, lobster, shrimps, desserts were all good but only if you have patience for the slow and lousy service. This place is good for small parties only and we've apparently made a mistake to drag 11 people with us. Still a must have for me everytime i come to this culinary capital.

Thank you for your review, be sure to know that we value all reviews about us and try always to do better when we get feedback. But, i would like to clarify that you were 14 people and not 11. You asked us for 4 tables separate from eachother without sending us the 4 course menu ahead of time. We... More

My husband and I had a wonderful dinner here. It was a great setting that was near shops, churches, restaurants, and bars. We sat outside and enjoyed their white wine mussels.
