One of the best meals we had. Very friendly staff and fish and seafood super fresh. Small portions but plenty to fill you up. We got a selection of a few dishes and the best was the grilled soul fish and the croquettes. Divine! There's no sitting outside but you can inside next door to them where they've got an... More

This is a popular place with locals, so expect to queue and have one in your party be vigilant to swoop on a table when available. We had delicious fish soup and fried prawns. Very good food, particularly for the price. I can't remember how much we spent exactly, but it was cheap and the food and spectacle made it... More

Freshy seafood that you can order by your finger in the short distance. Cooking time is excellent. Get a Belge beer and cheers up!

A place that specializes on sea street food ! They serve a few varieties like mussles, oysters, fish soup, fried calamari, all great with a glass of wine ! The place and the servers the same as the atmosphere

We had a fish soup and white fish with two glasses of champagne. Amazing location and great food! The soup was perfect for the cold December day. A must in Brussels

Stumbled upon Nordzee by accident but I am very happy I did. The mussels were excellent and the staff was very friendly.

I came across this place by chance while ambling around the christmas markets. I was hungry and this place was hopping. The staff were so friendly and the service was quick. I had the plate of prawns and a beer. I've been back in Canada for two weeks now and I'm still dreaming about the prawns. They were grilled, had... More

We ate here and loved the experience and the food. The fish is of a very high quality, especially considering the price. We tried the fish soup, mussels, and a few other small dishes that we shared. All of the food was excellent. It's street food of the highest quality. There wasn't much information in English, but the service was... More
