Nicely presented food, fish burgers are amazing, staff is great and very patient in explaining a bit more and give advice. I work in the area, worth a try during your lunch break.

upside : great staff, fresh seafood (clams, razor clams, shrimps...), best fish meatballs, can have a glass of fresh white wine, can be used for a date downside : no places to sit down, often a queue, difficult to find somewhere to eat

Amazing food, soup and oysters were amazing. We tired traditional soup with seasnails from Brussels and it was tasty but very hot! Ba careful :D Ousters are also fresh and big enough. also I would like to admit that stuff was extremely friendly. Highly recommend...this place!More

Non pretentious great food at very good prices. Had the oysters, s’more bread (amazing!!) and the calamari, everything arrived quickly and super delicious. Very good value for money as well!

I was there yesterday after a hiatus of a few months but having been a regular for years. The dish that I wad always ordered 'eperlans' we're not particularly fresh and very salty (not what I have eaten during the past ten years). But worse...was the fact that they advertise prosecco - which I love - and they are serving cava - which I cannot drink as it gives me a headache, which I had all afternoon and evening. Be honest and serve what you are advertising otherwise great you are cheating.More

One of the places that we come back to over and over again. I wish it was a sit down restuarant. Instead, you have to eat while standing at tiny wobbly tables. Not cheap, but the food is just AWESOME! Prawns are to die for....I only wish they served other beer (traditional Belgian triple or blonde) than just Estaminet (pretty good lager to be fair). Simple system, order and pay, then they call your name to collect your dishes. Did I mention AWESOME quality food? ;-) There is a chip shop nearby, but their chips are not that great, so eat your seafood with the baguettes they give you (for free).More

We thoroughly pleased with our time here. The staff was so much fun and the food was amazing. If we ever happen to be in Antwerp again, we will have to eat here. The price was great too!

Fantastic value lunch. Calamari, king prawns and fish soup to share. Great service and atmosphere. We didn't realize that it's shut on a Monday! But went back on Tuesday and Wednesday, it was that good. If weather not the best,you can sit inside the joining...oyster bar, as long as you buy your drinks from them they are happy and very welcoming.More

I went here in August 2019 and January 2020. Worth standing in both heat and cold for. The staff are friendly and helpful. They make an effort to learn your name and explain any dishes you are unsure about; for example, we had never tried...sea snail soup and upon their explanation we went for it. The broth was perfect on a cold day. I think about this food more days out of the week than not. Indeed, part of the reason I went back this month was just to have more of that shrimp scampi and razor clams! Make time for this place if you can.More
