When we complained about this, the waiter who served us did not accept that they hade made two mistakes. After that the waiter ignored us. After a long time of waiting... More

Mussels, fish, steak, it was all good sitting outside along the canal. Attentive service but not rushed, outdoor heaters for the evening slight chill. As pretty to see as to enjoy dining.

Nice atmosphere and good service. They played with my baby and it was a great feeling to be there. Very friendly. Food was delicious. Reasonably priced. Clams and lobster melt were exceptional. The best steamed lobsters ever! We loved this place so much we went twice. The price was great, and the food amazing. Each person gets one whole lobster,... More

There are many seafood restaurants around St. Catherine's church but I'm glad we've chosen this one. Had a set menu for €24 for 3 courses and food was amazing. For starter ordered traditional fish soup which was one of the best I tried. For main - I had a fillet steak and my mum chose sea bass. We were struggling... More

There is another with a similar name nearby. The food was average and overpriced. I also thought the service while friendly was a little lacking. I was planning to order dessert... More

Big disappointment for someone that knows the place for 40 years ! Nothing remains from these times. The only nice thing is the professional and smiling service. The place seems to have been refreshed decades ago. Tartare de thon is not good, sole is ok but nothing compared to good old times. This plus wine is above 70eur/pers, London but... More

The mussels are like everywhere else in Brussels. Tasted good but you can find the same for a lower price. The service was efficient. Oh, and no WiFi.
