I always visit this restaurent when I am in Brussels. The tuna steak is excellent. The set up is amazing; being able to have food standing in this lovely old square is really charming. Highly recommended.

Really nice to have a rapid stop and try several dishes from the menu. Around 20-25e for two with 3 dishes and 2 drinks. The staff is friendly and the street style makes it very nice as well!

Noordzee Mer du Nord is a quick stop for casual fresh seafood. It is a little confusing when you first arrive, but the staff is friendly and efficient. The seafood is well priced for the quality and portion. We ordered the shrimp croquettes, fried calamari and fish soup. All were very good and fresh. We shared a table with a... More

We have been here several times, and can really recommend the place! Ordering is slightly chaotic, which is part of the charm. The food is eaten while sharing a standing table with other customers (often locals). The "garnaalkroketten" (shrimp croquettes) are a favorite of ours, but the other dishes are very tasty as well: the fish of the day is... More

Noordzee Mer du Nord is a stop nothing more. A stop where you enjoy some oysters and a glass of wine before you head out for the real meal. It is like a huge fishmonger where most of the food is handed out on plates. The place is well worth visiting due to the atmosphere and the freshness of the... More

If you're into sea food, Mer du Nord is the prefect spot to have some on the go. Everything is fresh and tasty and service is fast and accurate.

The staff was motivated, seemed nice and friendly. The food arrived really quickly and was excellent. The only downside is that you have to stand outside to eat but if you dont mind or you come by in the summertime this is definatley a place to go and enjoy good seafood.

Not a restaurant, but a fish and sea food bar. A very good one. Fresh and top quality fish and sea food, served raw or lightly touched, with e right wine or beer. A must for sea food lovers, few minutes from the city center, a great stop for quick lunch.

Having heard so much about this place we had to visit it. We were not disappointed. The fish was succulent and fresh. The queues were not even that big. Staff friendly. I'm not great on fresh fish with bones etc. but they have an ample selection including fish "burgers" which is actually more a gourmet fishcake which was delicious and... More
