Really tasty fish and chips flavoured very well and with good drinks available too. By far the best value for money of any meal we had on our trip to Brussels. Delicious!

I am not a fan of fish, but this place is just amazing. Fast, polite and helpful service, tasty food and a nice space. Took a "classic ponko" for 12 eur but couldn't finish it. Portions are just huge. Maybe they should create an opportunity...More

Fresh Sustainable Fish & Chips Concept. Fresh fish only at our beloved restaurant where we are trying to change the style of traditional Fish & Chips by using our very own 'street food' interpretation of the classic British dish. We are influenced by cuisines & cultures from all over the world and love the challenge of creating new styles regularly. We have a small restaurant so we cannot take reservations. With 30+ recipes, 20+ sauces & over 25 types of sustainable fish that change weekly we hope you find your style! EAT MORE FISH. Bia Mara
