I have no trouble recommending this restaurant in Brussels. Just a few blocks west from the tacky Grote (sp) Market area. Excellent food and nice people. Mostly sea food, but chops and other things also. Main course ~25E. Large portions (at least of the salmon). If you are two, you could split it and a salad - though the salads... More

We chose the restaurant for our last evening in Belgium. Best food we had all week, even though we only had good food. Very nice service, nice people, yes not cheap, but then again quality does have its price!! We would recommend it any time and will definitely come back if we ever get to this beautiful city again!

Thought our whole experience was fantastic. We had a last meal with family on our last night in Brussels. We chose the 4 course menu at 47 euro. It was a bit expensive along with the Chateauneuf de Paepe. However the service was excellent and the food exquisite. Would definitely recommend especially if you like seafood, but there are other...

Great seafood restaurant. The moules St Catherine were excellent. The lobster was gorgeous and if you only go there and have the chocolate mouse it will be worth the trip, it was devine! My only criticism is that is is probably a little over priced.

Good value food and fair choice on the €25 menu. We sat outside which was very pleasant. Steaks look like a good option, lobster was ok but nothing special. Service was polite but made mistake on our starters and took a long time between courses which might be an issue if you're in a hurry. It was a good meal... More

I've been visiting restaurants on vacation and business in Belgium for the last week. This one had the worst quality to price ratio. Soups are 14-16 euro and contain no fish or lobster. Entrees in the 25 euro range. Sole was good. Lamb ok. Lobster was good. Steak overbooked and tough. Wait staff seemed to be oblivious to us. I... More

This part of Brussels is crowded with resturantoffers and it is difficult to say which is best and the menus are very similar. This use to be among the better ones also having an out door section.
