No doubt I have had finer French food but in much larger cities and comparing to other restaurant in Mons, this one has the widest fish selection - one should note that this restaurant only serves fish! So in short, one of the best restaurants around but a little on the pricy side - especially for wine. The waiter is... More

Excellent service & the seafood/fish was delicous. We both ordered the bouillabaise & our only reservation was that the soup was too salty. Everything else was faultless - wonderful warm, crusty bread & fresh butter to start - we didn't order dessert but were given financiers to sweeten our palates at the end of the meal. Would highly recommend this... More

My Friend in Mons bring me here as i wanted to have Oyster and seafood. We have a great dinner with fresh oyster and tailor-make Italian rice for us. All the food here is fresh and I am luck to have my dinner here because I have a local friend in Mons.

We had a good meal here accompanied with a great Italian Chardonnay. A few remark, the waiter with the pony tail was too talkative. It's good to have a friendly waiter but this guy just didn't stop to the annoyance of his colleagues and the diners. Also the crab had almost no meat inside only red coral. Otherwise a great...

Fish Restaurant "La Madeleine", Rue des Halles, was founded mid-18th century, near the fish market ("Marche au poisson"). You arrive through the kitchen, which is an informal entry, to say the least, butiIt shows the cleanliness of the restaurant's workplace! The Maitre d'hotel welcomed us, found us a pleasant table where we had a good look into the whole room... More

Short walk from "la Grand Place". Very friendly and efficient service. Well-decorated in tones of black and gray. Tables are well-spaced. Not too pricey, and you get your money's worth. Food was excellent. Raw milk butter (miam) and magnificent cheese tray. A really special place. (Around 110 euros for 2 with wine and coffee)

This restaurant only serves fish and that is what my wife and I love. It was recommended by the hotel receptionist when I asked for a good fish restaurant. Our meal was excellent. The waiter was a delight, he kept the diners hugely entertained (in French). My only hesitation is that my fish main course was underdone and, rather than... More

The impression given was that this was going to be a really outstanding restaurant. It was not flamboyantly decorated outside, and the entrance was through the end of the kitchen, so clearly they were not afraid of showing who, how and where the food was prepared. There was none of the hated loud "music". There were several tables occupied, and... More
