“A great restaurant - off the tourist track.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

L'Huitriere is only a ten minute walk from the Grand Place. It offers a warm welcome, great food and the set menus are reasonably priced and good value.
Situated in the old fish market area, the fish dishes are of a high quality (we did not try any meat but it looked delicious).
The staff are friendly, well informed and happy to help.
We enjoyed our evening meal so much that (unusually for us), we decided to return a couple of days later for lunch and were not disappointed.

“Excellent Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012

Visited this restaurant twice during four days in Brussels - once for lunch and once for dinner. On both occasions we had an excellent meal, on both occasions we had the set menu and on both occasions I thought the price was very reasonable but be aware there are some expensive items on the menu. My cod at dinner was amongst the nicest fish I have had in the last 50 years!
The staff were very friendly and there was no stigma in having the set menu, in fact at lunch everyone seemed to be having it.
The restaurant is just 10 minutes from the Grande Place and well worth the walk.

“Good quality, charming atmosphere and nice staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2012

Good quality French food (with a slightly more Northern European, heavier style). Staff were nice and very accommodating with non meat eaters. Traditional wooden panelled interior is warm and welcoming. I would go back.

“Wonderful French food at reasonable prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2012

We were surprised at the quality of the food at this restaurant which had a fixed-price menu of 27 Euros for delicious mussels in a tomato-based sauce, large lobsters with a wonderful sauce, and warm pastry with ice cream. Wines by the glass are reasonably priced. The restaurant is located in the St. Catherine district of Brussels and has outdoor seating. The service was terrific

“A little better than good...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2012

We had a tasty dinner for four, two of us ordering the fish (Dorado), which was moist and flavorful, and the other two the steak. Our waiter was charming and friendly, though thankfully I stuck to my guns about serving the steak medium rare for my daughter. It was slightly more cooked than that, and had it been prepared to medium (his recommendation, for some reason), would have been overdone. The house wine we had was adequate. The portions were pretty large--no room for (over priced) desserts. On our walk back to the hotel, we worked up a bit more appetite for some chocolate!
