Average food, slow service

We had lunch in this resto on Friday afternoon (2 adults + 1 child). Maybe I am spoiled after just being to Italy for vacations, but I was not at all impressed. Although the place is nice with tables outside that are set up nicely with white table cloths & the nice interior as well, the food is... read more

Gorgeous spot, terrific service and scrumptious food. Had been there 6 years ago and was determined to find it again on a return visit. Was delighted that it was just as good as was remembered. Owner seated us, Frederic served us and all aspects were terrific.

We have eaten at many restaurants around the world and this had to be one of the worst meals we've ever had. Nothing was got, terrible food, worse service, and it was too expensive for what you got. We had a reservation and were seated right away; the restaurant wasn't crowded. We ordered a bottle of wine, which came promptly... More

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

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.
