“the best moules-frites you'll ever eat!”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

This place is the spot the locals frequent for moules-frites, and if you go you'll know why! The moules are great during fall, winter and spring. Avoid summer, when the moules are reproducing and the quality is not as fine.

“Great moules, popular with the locals”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

Le Bouchot is located outside the main tourist area, about five minutes' walk from the Place des Heros and the Grand' Place, in a modern-ish building of no great character, though the restaurant is well decorated in a nautical theme. I would agree with the reviewer who said 'no pretensions about the place' - it's good honest fish dishes prepared well, and it is clearly popular with the locals - we were the only English there that night, and people were being turned away. The menu is interesting as 30 euros gets you three courses of almost anything from the a la carte menu - and it's a very interesting menu. Being an 'R' in the month, we chose the moules marinieres (mussels lightly steamed in white wine with leeks and celery) and these were superb. The creme brulee for pudding was good too!

“Lovely food, not cheap but good quality.”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

Delicious food, both seafood and meat. Puddings were good but I would concentrate on the savoury dishes here. We had 2 starters, 3 mains, 3 puds and 2 coffees plus drinks and paid 107€, not cheap but the quality was very good and the hosts very welcoming.

“Good fish restaurant”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

No pretensions about this place but all four of us enjoyed the fish dishes we ate here and thought it was fair value for money.
