This brasserie is somewhat hidden in a corner of the Place Rihour but it is well worth looking for. The menu is posted outside and it gives you a clear indication that this place is all about fish and seafood. Impression which is further strengthened by the men chucking oysters right next to it.
The menu is limited which I always find rather reassuring since the ingredients should be fresh.
We had made reservations and on a Friday night, this is definitely recommended. We were rapidly shown our table and we were handed the menu. We went for the mussels à la marinière and the coquilles saint jacques with fruit. In general, one could expect about half a kilo of mussels per serving, but here you get substantially more (but not the 1 kg or more as served in Belgium). The mussels were well cleaned and there were no crabs to be found in them. They were perfectly cooked and tasty. The French fries were allright. The coquilles were succulent and it was a n interesting and delicious approach to combine them with fresh fruit (grapefruit, kiwi, strawberry and pineapple).
We had a nice dry wine to go along with these dishes and the waiter was attentive to keep our glasses full.
Dessert was in my opinion even better. In fact, we had the outstanding profiterolles, the crème brulée, the mousse au chocolat, tiramisu and tarte aux fraises. All of them were outstanding except for the tarte where we would have liked a crunchier crust (minor remark).
The staff was welcoming, efficient and professional.
I think this is a great value for money place and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a qualitative fish or seafood meal.
