We were there around 6:30, waited for nearly 30 minutes before getting a table. The fish was quite nice, crispy and tender, low price in center of Brussels, the chips are way too salty in my taste.

A great place for fresh fish and chips, fried with extra care. Probably the best quality of fish & chips I have ever tasted! Served with a variety of delicious sauces and tasty side dishes. Worth trying the fresh strawberry lemonade!

Fresh Sustainable Fish & Chips Concept.
