Fresh tasty sushi. The portions are small and the prices are very high. I wouldn't have eaten here however I was stuck in Brussels airport for 5 hours due to a delay and was given a credit voucher as compensation. This made the cost of my meal more reasonable. Also, the restaurant served me tea in a cast iron pot... More

An improvement will be necessary in terms of service to the client. After being seated and waiting for 10 long minutes had to leave the place. 5 or 6 staff members were busy talking and discussing behind the counter but they do not seem to care for or look for their customers to be serviced. Not to be recommended .

Due to limited availability of other alternatives it is one of the best places in the airport building. However small size expensive dishes with reasonable quality fish. Do not expect harbour fish restaurant quality. Regular I come back and most staff are friendly and serviceminded.

The location is cool but prices are too expensive for a not very good and fresh sushi. Just in case you really need to eat sushi, take it to go.

In the context of an international airport, the value for money is quite OK, and it is always a pleasure to have a break and lunch there before flying. Be it alone when traveling for business or with the family. Sometimes for sushi, sometimes for a nice wine of glass (very interesting selection, nothing to compare with the other drinks... More

An ideal restaurant to hace a quick but high quality seafood lunch. My favourite are the 6 oysters with a glass of cava. Good price quality relation. The bouillabaise and instant made Sushi plates are also great. I wish every airport had a restaurant like Black Pearls!
