We ate at this restaurants since it was close to some tourist attractions. We also wanted to have authentic Belgian food and this place advertised relatively cheap but traditional Belgian food. We ordered a portion of the mussel pot with fries and a steak and fries. Each meal came with a drink... read more

It's a pure scam. A real and classic tourist trap. The personnel are bored of being there but are the main actors of this farse. Avoid it if you can!! You are cheated in your orders and you get extremely overpriced. It's a shame for this beautiful city that we keep this image. Avoid it! Avoid it! Avoid it!

Friendly, helpful waiters, attractive ambience, good food served reasonably quick. We found it very relaxing and felt no pressure to rush away.

For anyone who has visited the Rue de lo Fourche they will know its a tough spot to choose a resturant to eat in. For those who havent experienced it, basically its a labyrinth of resturants door to door that on close inspection all seem to be peddling the same dishes (Traditional Belgian, Italian and some international fare thrown in...

We ate here hoping to have excellent moules frites but I'm disappointed to say I've had far better in London. The sauce which is the most important thing to this dish was thin. I'm sure there are far better places to eat moules frites in Brussels. Overpriced

We only went into this out of exasperation after being hassled to distraction by so many waiters along the rue des Bouchers. It was not a great choice. The waiter was surly. A hang-dog expression of doom and despair never left his face. He was clearly bored out of his tiny gourd and would much rather have been a home... More

In theory this restaurant has the capacity to be a good one because the ingredients are good, the location is good and the cooking decent, but prices are desorbitant and they try any way to make you buy things you don't really want. So if you don't mind paying too much it is ok but be careful what you order.

dont be fooled by the exterior sea food display, that is the "bait" to get you inside! The food quality is average at best, the service is slow, and the prices are too high for the quality of fare! Be careful when ordering anything from their picture menu without prices, they got us on a cold sea food platter that... More

The area around Grand Place has lots of tourist trap restaurants. This is one of them but the food is ok and the price also. They also offered one bier for each one of us to call our attention.

Place travel and do not expect very good service. But the seafood here is fresh and tasty. Recommend for lunch.
