I've been here a few times, and it never disappoints. The oysters are especially tasty and very fresh. I've tried mostly fish dishes and they have all been cooked perfectly and are tasty. The menu is quite "Belgian" however, and could be updated a little more often imo. Still, def recommend it!

Definitely completely over priced and much below acceptable service. I’ve been there at least three times before today, Sunday October 16. Today was a very disappointing and unpleasant experience. We left feeling cheated and dismayed. Slow, very patronising, dismissive, and arrogant service. There was no attention to detail, especially given the exorbitant price. With great difficulty we had to draw... More

A very nice and light room invites you to sample fresh oysters, well prepared seafood and a friendly service. Prices are a bit high but the clientele seems to be at ease with them. Nice outdoor seating.

Great sea food. Always fresh. Good service and nice place. Can be very noisy. Be prepared to pay a premium.

We had dinner there on 17/08/2016. It was our second time there. The restaurant is very pleasant in a nice setting. However, they charge too much for what they offer. And you do not pay €100 per person to suffer from indigestion and stomach cramps next day! We had oysters which were very good. We chose tuna with truffles, which... More
