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.

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.

The quality of the fish was excellent the service was indifferent at best a bit like a good day at faulty towers. However I am told this is "cultural" a bit french it... More

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
