FIRST THING FIRST: if you really want to go here, GO UPSTAIRS BEFORE ORDERING THE FISH and look at the place where you are going to eat (more on that below). Let's start with the simple things. Okay, they don't serve alcohol because of religion issues (they are muslims, and in fact almost all the clients were muslims too so... More

The fish is tasty and offered with a nice sauce. Definitely one of the best places to enjoy your favorite fish in a nice atmosphere. A variety... More

If you like fish and seafood, you will enjoy this restaurant. First of all, you have the fish displayed, fresh. The price is per kg of raw fish that you order. After having made a selection, you are seated at your table and the food is immediately cooked and served. The prices are reasonable, much cheaper than other restaurants of... More

I had the chefs recommended fish complimented with salad and paprika salad. Authentic and delicious place, i recommend trying, especially a foodie looking for a gem in the neighborhood and not your typical tourist spot.

A great eating experience that is unlike anything I have found in the UK. You enter the establishment, which appears to be a fishmongers, but people are sat eating cooked food. You make a selection of fresh fish from counter with whatever salad our soup or paella you would like to accompany it and then ~15 minutes alter it appears... More

Although safe, tourist do not usually venture at this part of Brussels which it is very close to the South train station. Brussels is so full of excellent restaurants for fine eating that one rarely will think or recommended to come at the Stalingrad street of a good fish meal. Brussels natives do and enjoy it. I would not have... More

I was here two weeks ago, and although I have origins from a coastal region, this place had a very unique concept which I was very much inclined to try. The food was tasty especially combined with one-of-a-kind sauce they gave, but a bit too expensive. The meal in the attached photo cost me 12.8 euros without anything to drink.... More

It's simple really - piles and piles of fresh fish, you pay by weight and they grill it for you and serve with frites and salad. So good. And close to the train station so perfect for a pre Eurostar meal.
