We went to Le homard rouge to have a nice dinner and did not regret our choice.
We chose the 3 course menu with salmon tartar, scallops, a sorbet and 1/2 lobster.
Everything was well-prepared, fresh and tasted well. The price was absolutely justified for what you get. It's not haute cuisine but on a high level.

Only little downside: the service by the younger waitress was not very motivated but she did her job. Otherwise, the staff was friendly and helpful. Eg. we asked if it would make sense to upgrade to an entire lobster and were told that it was only necessary if we would like to eat much. We found that very fair.

All in all a recommendation

It was an evening in the latter part of September when we chose to dine at Le Homard Rouge. It had turned warm during the day and everyone had chosen to eat out on the terrace overlooking the canal. We decided to do likewise. It really was very pleasant.
We chose the Grand Menu which included a lobster each, served in two different ways. They were delicious. Not only that, the lobster followed on from a bowl of delicious mussels.

All was washed down with a bottle of the best wine we had tasted on our current trip and excellent coffee.

The waitress made us very welcome, and continued to chat for some time when we had finished our meal rather than concentrating on clearing the place up.

This is our second review of this restaurant. This time, we had chosen the 'Birthday' arrangement for 4 persons at 57 euros (one was free, see www.lehomardrouge.be). The theme was asparagus with lobster. The location, the interior decoration, the food, the music, the wine, the service from the first minute to the last one ... just perfect!

N51°3'16.3" E3°43'27.8" Lobster is their speciality, although they serve fresh fish for those who do not enjoy lobster. But the main reason to eat at Le Homard Rouge is lobster, prepared in many different ways. Staff will explain the differences. We choose Le Petit Menu with a glass of cava and amuse-bouche, beef carpaccio with basil oil and Parmesan chips, one whole fresh lobster (of course) and chocolate dessert. The pinot blanc was a perfect match and we enjoyed our meal very much.
In May 2012, we really liked the atmosphere in this basement restaurant with cellar ceiling. In the summer you can eat at the waterside terrace. The staircase to the restaurant is a challenge for people with obesity. Staff was attentive and helpful. Recommended.

Very nice lobster-restaurant that we visited already quite a few times during summer. They have a nice menu with 3 lobster-dishes that I would recommend to everyone ... Not only the food was good but the service is great !!! You can enjoy you meal outside if you want (and if the weather is fine).
