Excellent fish restaurant

We heard a lot about high prices and bad service in Brussels. This restaurant was recommended in the hotel. It is in the centre of the city and next door to many other seafood restaurants. We noticed that there were many locals among visitors which is always a good sign. Portions are large. Pan... read more

Very very good food, relaxed yet busy ambiance, the staff is extreemely nice. Perfect for a work lunch/dinner but also for a night out. The open kitchen is especially fascinating and if you sit in a good spot you can watch the chef compose the dishes - an extra treat. My group chose mainly fish and both the squid and... More

With excellent food, especially fish, you expect adequate service. This was not the case last Saturday night. Probably too full house, and the waiters were disorganised. We had to wave to them regularly when we needed their attention. And they forgot items between order and delivery of food to our table. Probably a small table for a party of 2... More

We tried this after recommendations. The staff were friendly and helpful, the blonde lady was superb as was our waiter. We had bread and were also brought two potato and salmon breadcrumb balls and a taster before our starters arrived. My wife had a fish starter that went on forever. It looked amazing but if some one orders this be... More

We skipped the starters, because they were all well above € 10,-- at least! I was looking forward to the famous Belgian mussels, but they were nothing special. I have eaten better ones before. My daughter's portion of salmon was huge, but then it was also nothing exceptional. Quite expensive for what you get.

Perhaps my expectation were too high after reading so many good reviews. The place is nice and I loved the open kitchen. But the food was just fine - nothing special - and overpriced.

The fish there is fantastic, and I strongly recommend their gravlax as a a starter. They have a good seasonal menu. However, they charged to replace fries for vegetables (12 euros for a plate of vegetables...) and the service standard was not as high as that of the food.

This is a fish resturant so as I had beef I maybe can't judge it 100%. My friends were quite happy with their fish dishes and my steak was good but not great. Good service and staff.

So I had been desperately wanting to try to this place after reading the reviews on the site but overall, I was slightly underwhelmed... The place is easy enough to find - right by St Catherine's dock. The place looked cozy without being pretentious - I rather enjoyed the open kitchen... It looked busy but energetic. The staff were attentive... More
