Friendly staff, amazing food, and a very scenic area. I came here four years ago and have been waiting for the moment I found myself in Brussels again to come back.

It is definitely a fast food sea food. But on the left there is a small shop which belongs to the same shop. There is a bar where you can sit and have more tastes like North Sea clams. They were delicious.
