We had the st Jaques as starter. They were very delicate of taste (local catch) and served with witloof. Combination was excellent. Then gratin of various fish and a large chunk of seabass with forgotten vegetables, supported by very fine mousselines of potatoe and herbs.
The view on the activities in the open kitchen supports the experience. No complexity but super tasty ingredients combined to make it a very positive "would certainly come back again".

We have been meaning to try Vismet for a long time given the good reviews it gets from local connoisseurs. Gloriously, we ate there this week and it was fantastic. The simple and traditional decor adds to the old Brussels experience. The service is just perfect, not too cold, not too much (I know you know what I mean). Nd the food ...... the baby mussels in garlic butter and slightly spicy, are delicious. These were on the house, and I will go back to Vismet just have them again. For apetizers we ordered the tartare of dorade which is amazingly good and refreshing. The fish dishes we had as main courses were equally good. Vismet is a a jewel.

Great food and service. We had a delicious lunch for 18 euro each. Fresh fish at its best. Cute atmosphere not touristy at all. Perfect find.

The Vismet is at a nice place in Brussels, where you will find a lot of restaurants. The negative side of it, almost no parking. So if you decide to go, then you should park in one of the garages which are around 200 - 300 m away.
The restaurant itself is simple but nice and the kitchen is completely open, so you can see all the preparations. Only 2 to 3 disches with meat, the rest is fish. We were 5 people and 4 ordered Kabeljau Sticks and I ordered Clamaris, which cam warm with a good dip and a small salad. All very good. We had a bottel of Red and a bottle of White Wine, which were als very good. As main courses we had Turbot, Thuna Tartar, Salmon and Dorade. All very good. The Creme Brulee we had for desert tasted a little bit burned. But this was the only slight negative thing.
In general a very good place with reasonable prices and a very good food and service.

One of the many seafood restaurants around St Catherine square. Dishes prepared simple and with a fresh look. Had a big piece of talbot poached medium rare, suggested by the waiter - tasted excellent! Open kitchen not too prominent.
