Close to 300€ per head for a good but not exceptional meal is overpriced. We got sitted in the first floor where it was cold and without any music. When asked about the music, the personnel told us it was currently broken. At that level,...More

We went here for lunch during the Belgian summer holidays, and the restaurant was quiet. If you like classic surroundings with thick carpets and wood-panelled walls as well as a polite staff, this is the place to go for a high quality fish experience. The...More

Quite busy on a week night in the middle of summer, so mostly tourist couples and families in this fish restaurant that has retained much of its 80/90s look, except for the menus on iPad... The 4 course 50 year anniversary surprise menu is a...More
