Fish lovers: Mark this one!

This was my second time at Vismet. Again the food was great, the atmosphere was nice, the waiters were friendly and willing to explain items on the menu. The lemon risotto and scallops was to die for! For me, eating seafood is all about tucking in. So I enjoyed the process of peeling shrimps and... read more

The sea platter was exceptional! As was the tarbot on white asperagus. One should not take steak at a fish restaurant. Well cooked, but meat was very lean, so a bit chewy.

Outstanding food! We were recommended Vismet by one of the Hilton's staff and was on the mark. The service, the atmosphere and the food was fantastic!

An honest and authentic Belgium restaurant with super fresh fish, sea food, but not limited to that. Handwritten, seasonal and weekly changing menus. Boss and head chef Tom drives the show in the open kitchen with its all open facilities. Just a great lively place to go with friends, colleagues or your spouse. In many years in Brussels have never... More

The restaurant is excellent for fish lovers. It's absolutely buzzing so reservations are a must. Everything we ate was great and the service is better than normal Brussels standards. Recommended: 9/10

Always top quality food and service. And priced just right (not inexpensive but worth the quality). Good wine selection too.

We very cheekily asked for a table without booking at 7.15 on NYE, which we were given as long as we could leave by 9 for another booking. This wasn't an issue for us, and we appreciated the honesty from the staff. Despite this, we were treated as though we were long term customers, with 2 amouse bouche, and great... More

My husband & I were in Brussels for one night, a search on TripAdvisor lead us to Vismet. There was loads of great reviews & so we made a booking. We arrived at the restaurant & even though there was plenty of empty tables we were seated by the entrance. We were given two menus, one written in French &... More

Just excellent food. Most of it fresh and home made. Only fish on the menu, but the best one. He service is great also. A bit pricy, but the quality of service and the food makes it up. Reservation is a must!

The fish here is without question some of the best in Brussels. We were seated quickly with three more of our party turning up half way through the meal, they were very flexible and it was sorted with no drama. The open kitchen is wonderful and I enjoyed the near theatrical experience of watching the chefs. The dishes were delicious... More
