This is standing only establishment. Don't expect seats or a formal sit down. Cocktail tables should be available under a marquee in the square opposite. Staff are exceptionally friendly and accommodating for any questions or assistance.

Go at lunch or dinner and eat at the stand up tables for good fresh affordable seafood! The mussels were flavorful and great. The calamari good, the tuna burger yummy. The oysters next door delicious. Don't miss!

Stopped in for lunch and wow am I glad we did. Garlicky prawns and a crab burger were spectacular, along with a lovely beer. I've heard it gets very busy so be aware of that but it's well worth it

Great place to try Belgium oysters. The staff is very nice, recommend wine which is better to your choice. Also prices are very good for dishes they serve

Food was great, fresh, and the price was rather low. Service was very friendly and the queue goes by very fast. Only downside is the lack of actual places but the standing-tables were good enough

We had an early lunch, Sunday noon - scores of people standing on the pretty square, served quickly (your name will be called out loud every time a dish from your order is ready). Fresh products, varied according to the season and the day's catch....More

If you like fresh fish or seafood in general, this is the place to be in Brussels. The concept of this "restaurant" (not a real restaurant) is more street foods than real restaurant. You order by looking at the table of what is available today....More

Even if it is for a quick aperitif before going to nearby restaurant, Noordzee is a must. Fresh and cheap finger foods including Croquettes Crevettes and a good selection of wine. Good stop for a quick bite on the run. Friendly staff.

Hi the same ownership has got right next to it on the same square an oyster bar... they are happy to serve you the outside food in there. Hope this helps. Aside from this place it seems quite popular that you can buy chips... More
