“A place for locals. Find it...”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local. If you are staying in Brussels, try to get here. Not a tourist joint, The most amazing food I've had in along time. The grey shrimp they start you with, looks nasty, but try it anyway. We had the waiter in stitches, watching us try to figure out how to eat it. He was a huge help. Very tasty. Everything from the little served with the appetizer was great. Ordered the skate fish dinner. (I don't even know what skate fish is... This was so fabulous, served with some type of pesto sauce. Don't miss it. Great to find a restaurant not for tourists.

“40 years of excellent service and food”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

We ordered the 40 years celebration menu. I think you can still try it if you're quick. Every dish was delicious and the accompanying wines great. Did I already mention the service?

“Belgian food at his best!!”
Reviewed 27 March 2014 via mobile

As I did review this restaurant a whole ago, I wanted to try it again as it was already a must to eat in Brussels. At the menu, we had the famous grey shrimp croquette followed by what was in season, the 'jet de houblon' served with a poached egg and hollandaise, a real threat!, the house famous fish soup, so good and very good value, the daily menu fish; steamed cod fish with creamed leek and shrimps and the crown the evening, Homemade vanilla ice cream with Belgian hot chocolate and double cream...miami....Their is a good selection of recommended wines as well as the regular wine list. The restaurant was full during the week, reservation is a must. Highly recommended...

“Amazing food, small family-style restaurant”
Reviewed 26 March 2014 via mobile

The Belgians are definitely friendly hosts who can whip up a fantastic meal! The skate fish/ king crab starter was amazing. We were late for lunch but they kindly took us in. Would have been gutted if we had missed the food in this place. They do an amazing lobster too. Will love to go back!

“A very good local restaurant.”
Reviewed 18 February 2014 via mobile

This is a good (mostly) fish restaurant in St Catherine's, a happening part of town by the old docks and now packed with (mostly) fish restaurants. It's comfortable inside with a local, fairly well-healed clientele and very good food. This is definitely a cut above the rest and we think well worth going to; our second visit did not disappoint.
