I had the chefs recommended fish complimented with salad and paprika salad. Authentic and delicious place, i recommend trying, especially a foodie looking for a gem in the neighborhood and not your typical tourist spot.

A great eating experience that is unlike anything I have found in the UK. You enter the establishment, which appears to be a fishmongers, but people are sat eating cooked food. You make a selection of fresh fish from counter with whatever salad our soup or paella you would like to accompany it and then ~15 minutes alter it appears... More

Although safe, tourist do not usually venture at this part of Brussels which it is very close to the South train station. Brussels is so full of excellent restaurants for fine eating that one rarely will think or recommended to come at the Stalingrad street of a good fish meal. Brussels natives do and enjoy it. I would not have... More

I was here two weeks ago, and although I have origins from a coastal region, this place had a very unique concept which I was very much inclined to try. The food was tasty especially combined with one-of-a-kind sauce they gave, but a bit too expensive. The meal in the attached photo cost me 12.8 euros without anything to drink.... More

Wide range of tasty seafood, reasonable price, but some of the fish items were not as fresh as you would expect.

It's simple really - piles and piles of fresh fish, you pay by weight and they grill it for you and serve with frites and salad. So good. And close to the train station so perfect for a pre Eurostar meal.

You have to select what you would like on your platter by queuing at the counter inside first, where they give you a number to display on your table. They you go outside and wait for a table to become free. After 5/10 mins, a waiter will bring you fresh bread and your salad (if you ordered one) while your... More

This is an area where everybody else will tell you not to go there but it is not as dangerous you think. Come for tasty and value-for-money seafood. You can just order whatever you want and the right quantity for yourself which means you can try many different things at one time. Don't miss the salad here.
