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

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

We booked a table for six people. We arrived with only 3 of us and told the staff that we did not know yet how many we would be. We were very brusquely advised that we would have to pay for people not showing up. We ended up being 12 people as more of our colleagues joined spontaneously. Here the... More

Vismet which meal fish market in Flemish was a wonderful find in Brussels. Away from the more "touristy" areas of the city but still within walking distance of the Grand Place, this restaurant was great. We shared the Matelot starter which had crab, shrimp. whelk, oysters and tiny grey shrimp and was plenty for the two of us. I had... More

one of the best seafood and fish restaurants in brussels. open kitchen. The chef is funny to watch at. we were served rather fast and the 'matelot' starter was again succulent. Never ahd a crab that fresh before. Solettes and other fish were fried as to perfection. Waiters are friendly. You leave in a good mood... Not too expensive neither.

You can get little of everything i n this well placed restaurant in the central neighberhoods. Fish or meat is prepared in front of the tables. Nice staff with good advise. We had both meat and fish.
