Ate at Vismet this evening after reading favorable reviews on Trip Advisor. Arrived for a 7:30 reservation and was told that they do not accept email reservations even though I had a written confirmation. Our waiter was so dismissive but did seat us and did find our reservation later. He haphazardly translated the menu, took our order and went out... More

We visited here early one evening during our Brussels trip and, having heard good things from reviews, I was expecting good things. My wife's Ribeye Steak was large and very good, Ben's Rump Steak was also good but my salmon darnes were just average, I'm afraid to say. Price v Quality, I'll leave to yourself to assess, reader.

Not as samey as other seafood restaurants in the area. Good atmosphere with a mix if locals and visitors. Very efficient service. Can recommend grey shrimp and tomato croquettes or cod with mousseline sauce. Not cheap but excellent quality, so didn't begrudge it. Would benefit from air conditioning if the weather is 35 degrees outside, but I guess that doesn't... More

Dinner with two work colleagues. Mackerel starter followed by three baby Dover soles (see photos of skeletons...!) Fair price for what you are getting and the location.

Excellent food (this is primarily a fish restaurant, but it also serves meat and other dishes). Creative, very tasty fish dishes (the ones we tried...) both in the starters and in the main courses. Attentive service. An open kitchen providing a peek into the preparation of the food. Pleasant, lively atmosphere. A highly recommended restaurant.

We were referred by staff of a local fish market to this restaurant tonite. We had a great meal based on the recommendation of the waiter. We ended up with four starters of various kind of seafood and a main course of baked Dover soles. They were deliciously prepared. The grilled squids, the clams in garlic wine sauce, the shrimp...

We ate here a couple of times this spring and enjoyed both visits greatly. On a Saturday night visit the place was packed with delighted diners, but despite this the welcome was warm and the service lighting fast - during the week the diners were just as delighted but the restaurant was not so full. I had Dover sole on... More
