This is a perfect stop during your Brussels shopping/sightseeing tour. Have a few snacks, with a glass of white wine and enjoy standing in the sun on the stand-up tables. Nothings beats it.

Fantastic seafood. Bustling place, serving food and drink from carts, with most of the spots to eat at stand-up tables. Highly recommended and packed with locals.

One of the better seafood I have tasted in Europe. However, find the prices slightly on the high side. Seafood are fresh and well prepared. There are stand nearby for you to eat your food. Worth the visit.
