Very good when compared to most of the fish restaurants Brussels can offer. Fresh products prepared in an unpretentious way (I guess the name "fish market" has been chosen on purpose). One can watch the food being prepared as there is not even a glass separating the kitchen from the dining area (I only wish the chefs were taking it... More

This was the best way to end our trip to Europe. The food was outstanding and the wait staff was very helpful and attentive. They helped us find great dishes that were outstandingly prepared. The Croquette and mussles were great starters only to be finished by even more amazing meals. I couldn't think of anything that would make it better.

It was a pleasure to eat fresh fish in Brussels! We had as starters, crab and oysters, main dish, Dover soles, tuna tartare and mackrel grilled! All of this, very well prepared. Service very good and good wine! Dessert also fantastic! You need to book if you want to go here on a Saturday night.

My fiance and I found this place through tripadvisor and we are so happy we did. We didn't make a reservation and just plopped down at an outside table (not ideal, to be certain). Loved the location, lots of other restaurants, shops, and bars. The waiter was a little stoic at first (possibly because we did just plop down), but... More

The restaurant is in one of the most emblematic places of Brussels. The quality of the fish I had (monkfish) was excellent. There is no air conditioning inside. They can't charge several cards if you go in a group. The service very slow ( we ended up skipping dessert) and the menu very limited , so if you don't care... More

This fish restaurant is located near the old fish market (which is now filled with fish restaurants). The interior of the restaurant is nothing special, it is a big open place with the kitchen visible to all guests. The welcome is nice and friendly but the food is excellent!! Mainly fish but there's a small choice of meat as well.... More

Great fish restaurant! Try the turbot, expensive but super fresh and huge.For non fish eaters try the entrecote. Friendly service, always packed and thus a bit noisy. The amuses (for free) are a yummy.
