This is a great place to have a quick bite or lunch. There is no seating so once you order your food they take your name and then they call your name for you to pick your food up. Then you eat standing at one of the small tables with other customers (there are umbrellas to protect from the rain).... More

Really good atmosphere with waiter shouting your name. It feels like you're at the market. Good food but try to be there early so you don't miss anything on the menu. We loved the "Kibberling" and the Prosecco.

This is definitely a good place to get high quality fish and seafood. I have tried the fish and crab burger. Both of them taste absolutely good but the portion is rather small. Nice ambience, kind stuff, good food! So why not?

a fun place to take a seafood snack in a lively square with locals and tourists alike . do not expect the best croquettes in all of brussels, but all is fresh and prepared in front of you.

Seafood restaurant, on a little place in center of Brussels; fresh starters, as crevettes, prawins, oysters with an onion sauce, and fresh cold white wine, rapid and friendly service; excellent, if you like.

Very nice sea food, one of the best. Pricey but totally worth it. Gotta try the croquettes they make, grilled muscles, tuna steak and sea snails soup. You will have one great experience.

Synonym of fresh and good quality seafood, inhabitants of Brussels usually head to the Noordzee (they have several places now, one on place st Catherine, another Place du Luxembourg and in the Marolles). It was my first time last week and wasn't disappointed. It's rather an open and stand up place, so don't expect to be seated and if it's... More

Nice and chaotic atmosphere, you have to fight to order your food :) The seafood is fresh, if you come later in the afternoon you have a risk not to get all the menu.

Looking for a quick bit while touring Brussels, then look no further. This corner stop has fresh seafood served up daily. Seafood soup was great with side of fresh cheese and bread. Scampis stir fried and lots of local seafood delights. Order your food and then stand at a table and enjoy the fresh and tasty seafood.
