My wife and I picked this small restaurant for a dinner on our first night in Brussels and it was an excellent choice. We loved everything there. Great food, great design, nice music, kind staff, and all at affordable price. 2 courses + dessert for 18 EUR per person.

I will be swift. Food wasn't bad ,but the staff was almost rude, and they did a weird trick with the bill in the end of lunch. They didn't put one of the plates with the excuse that the machine had some kind of problem, and the money of that plate went to the waiter's pocket. Also, the waiter was... More

Phone battery was flat and could not check trip advisor. We enticed off the street by a friendly spruiker. The decor looked good. The prices on the very extensive menu were high and expectations were raised It was all downhill from there.

Best seafood in Brussels! The food was really tasty and scrumptious. Also, they also offer halal meat. Recommended who is coming to the city.

Overpriced, no taste and deceitful crew. Please, don't visit. Spend your hard earned money where it's worth it. Rude staff!

It's my 50th birthday today. I'm in my hotel room dispensing gravy, from where I will not mention. I visited The Lobster House last night. The menu of the day looked good for 18 Euro. Once inside we were given the a la carts menu instead, with very high prices on it. The waiter looked quite put out when I... More
