If you compare it to a luxury restaurant, obviously this is something different, there are just little tables outdoors and you are a bit squashed beside everyone else, but the food is delicious, fresh, tasty and affordable. You order and pay inside, give your name,...find a table and then they come over calling your name bringing you the food. I had the calamari and the mussels, both were great. Strongly recommend it and I'd definitely be back, you just need to be lucky and find a seat because it's always quite crowded!More

Something of an institution in Brussels, this is a casual dining sea food cafe, with a large terrace. Get a table as soon as one becomes free, and then send one of your party to order the food at the counter. The food is cooked...to order and takes 10 to 15 minutes. It is a very busy and popular place, but the time and effort is well worth it. We had the fried prawns - served with a salad and a tartare sauce - followed by moules and fried cod. All of the food is obviously very fresh, simply but expertly cooked. A great memory from Brussels.More

Visited Nordzee for lunch last weekend and we were very impressed by the friendliness of staff and quality of the food and drink. Oh, and it's excellent value, too.

We stopped by for lunch shortly after arriving in Brussels. My wife and I each had fried calamari which was the best I have had in years, cooked just right so not chewy. We s add Lao got escargot which I didn’t care for but...this is personal preference in how it was prepared but by no means their fault. I am a beginner and usually eat it with garlic butter and not served natural.More

I’ve been dreaming about the shrimp croquettes since we returned from our trip. Fresh fish market with an attached restaurant. Delicious and quick.

I found this place by chance. It was very busy. You order what you want and they bring it to you outside. The first thing that surprised me was the people who were very gentle. I order the speciality of the day and a glass...of white wine. I must admit that was one of the best croquettes I have ever eat and the sauce was delicious as well; however, the price was a bit high dor that quantity. It was worth trying.More

One of my favorite restaurants I found in brussels on this trip- everything was so fresh and made to order. We wanted to try their mussels here but none available today. However, ask their food items were great! The sea bass was freshly caught and...filleted so you can just enjoy the fish without bones. The fish soup didn’t taste too fishy and was paired very well with the tomato and onions. They razor clams were not over cooked and probably my favorite way to enjoy their so far! The calamari tasted delightful by grilling instead of my normal frying. Overall I truly enjoyed my experience here. Will definitely be back to try more items!More

You order food, take a seat, they cook it/fry it for you and bring it to the table. Everything is take out style. It is a little bit expensive. Food is quite good. Fish soup was great!

I went to this place because a lot of people recommended it but it was really disappointing. The food was not tasty and it was expensive considering the small quantities. Nevertheless, I have to commend the nice staff and quick service.

The food is ok nothing extraordinary. We ordered the soup and the swordfish along with the mossels. It was ok but there's definitely better places in Brussels, not sure why this place is always so crowded, I would say it is just average place

Two stars for good past experiences. Ceviche was so bad it went straight to the trash. This is one of the best places for fish but today was a disappointment. Not just food but service too. Waiting for a table and then staff intervenes to...give the table to a group that arrived later without explanation. I hope this is just due to chef and manager being on holidays. Hopefully things will go back to normal but I will stay away for some timeMore
