Great place with delicious and fresh seafood. The disadvantage is you can only eat standing behind the counter or at a few simple high tables (without chairs) so don't expect any luxury and comfort there. The ambience is simple and the menu limited but what you can find there is really delicious. I would particularly recommend their fish soup and demi-baked tuna (one of the best I ever had). Prices are reasonable - in fact, quite a bargain for this quality. Food comes fast but at busy times you will have to wait to actually get some eating space to put your plates on but you also get a chance to mix with the friendly crowd of both tourists and Bruxelloise. Great for spring and summer days. They also sell fresh and smoked fish and some salads and small dishes for take away. The place is located in St. Catherine area, famous for its fish restaurants but beware, many of these seem to be simply tourist traps. Highly recommended - and another advantage is their opening hours (until 5pm usually, if I remember correctly) which means you can eat there even if you are late for lunch by Brussels standards.
