The lobster is... More

There are many seafood restaurants around St. Catherine's church but I'm glad we've chosen this one. Had a set menu for €24 for 3 courses and food was amazing. For starter ordered traditional fish soup which was one of the best I tried. For main - I had a fillet steak and my mum chose sea bass. We were struggling... More

I got a recommendation to eat at Rugbyman near the cathedral by my hotel. This was the first restaurant i saw. Unfortunately this wasn't the restaurant that was recommended. There is another with a similar name nearby. The food was average and overpriced. I also thought the service while friendly was a little lacking. I was planning to order dessert... More

Big disappointment for someone that knows the place for 40 years ! Nothing remains from these times. The only nice thing is the professional and smiling service. The place seems to have been refreshed decades ago. Tartare de thon is not good, sole is ok but nothing compared to good old times. This plus wine is above 70eur/pers, London but... More

The mussels are like everywhere else in Brussels. Tasted good but you can find the same for a lower price. The service was efficient. Oh, and no WiFi.

The food was great, the staff were friendly, the music was good. The waiter and the owner both made me feel at home, les homards sont excellents, the drinks selection was very good. Perfect meal in Brussels 👌

Food is tasteless and service is really poor despite the waiter acting like he'd like to be a waiter.

My friend and I got a nice table on the waterside terrace. We could see a duck and what seemed to be a built duck house on the water near by. This restaurant is well known among the people of Brussels. We chose the very reasonnable 3 course dinner menu for 18 euro euros. We started with white asparagus with... More
