This is not a global restaurant, it's full of Belgian character and upholds the National culinary tradition. The food fleets local tastes, the sea food was excellent. The quality to was excellent. The hor's d'oeuvres were exceptions. Many locals eating there, as well as tourists. Thoroughly recommended.

One of the classics in the otherwise rather touristic Rue de Petits Bouchers area, but not quite what I expected. I heard they are renowned for their fish menus, but was somehow disappointed with my plate. It was definitely tasty, but lacked imagination, and was not as good as I have eaten in some of the other classic restaurants in Brussels.

Probably the best fish restaurant in Brussels set in a cosy brasserie atmosphere. Excellent service, clean cooking.

Restaurant in the "to-be-avoided-area" next to Rue des Bouchers, even though the restaurant is much better than the crappy one for tourists located In the neighbourghood.
Food is much more than ok, wine is good, however the bill is rather expensive (85€/ person for starter/ main / dessert + wine).
The service is ok and friendly.
