Just passing through at lunch time, we stumbled upon this restaurant and were immediately convinced it would be good. The friendly reception, the delightful smell coming from the kitchen, the customers looking happy and chatty. We were not disappointed. Their fish and seafood is delivered fresh from the coast every morning. As mussels season has started we choose from the... More

This is an exceptional fish restaurant but it also features meat dishes. The waiters are attentive, wine selection is very good.

We had Oysters as a starter and afterwards filet de Turbotin and filets de Sole with a lobster bisque - it was delicious! Nice and friendly staff, except for the Manager who in our opinion was a little rude.

Nice fish restaurant, inside an authentic river barge, but not on water. Crowded, but worth it for the atmosphere.

living in the area for a long long time you discover sometimes a nice restaurant. The sea food dish we took was nice. Really nice wine by the glass and a friendly and correct service makes it a place to return for seafood. A good inland place for seafood is not always obvious, so it was a nice surprise

Large selection of seafood and other dishes served in the fun atmosphere of a peniche (river boat from what I'm told). Complimentary sea snails were an unusual starter for this American traveler. I had mussles in garlic and butter for a starter and the salmon beurre blanc for my meal. Both portions were large and filling. The chocolate mousse with... More

When the town authories refused the enlargement of this restaurant, the owner found that nothing in the law prevented him to park a boat there. Since then, you can eat in an actual, traditional flat-bottom boat. The food offers a real Belgian experience of "brasserie" cuisine. Try their mussels-and-fries or other seafood, which is clearly their top specialty.
