Reviewed yesterday NEW

Arriving jet lagged, blurry eyed and hungry, we strolled around the corner from our hotel to settle on this open air place bustling with activity. The menu is fairly limited to a narrow range of seafood and fish. You order at the counter and they walk you through all the options by pointing at the seafood/fish and describing how it... More

What a fantastic spot! Everything is excellent. The fish soup is one of the best I've had. Fried calamari are excellent. Razor clams are incredibly good. Can't go wrong here.

Great delicious place to eat! We have been several time to Brussels but never enjoyed the food as much as we loved it there!

We visited Noordzee on a beautiful spring afternoon, and it stands out in my mind as one of the best foodie experiences of our two weeks in the region. All items were cooked to order and were delicious! It was fun to watch the locals and visitors ooh and aah over their selections. If you have flexibility, arrive after the... More

Great lively place bustling atmosphere where most people stand at tables with canopies. We ordered fish soup which we got right away and scampi which didn't so be prepared to wait for your order and listen out for your name being called out. Delicious fresh fish dishes washed down with dry white wine.

I found Mer du Nord online and it looked very popular. We lined up for a 5 Euro bowl of soup served with a hunk of bread and cheese. WOW!!! We have eaten all over the world and this is the best 5 Euro's I ever spent. Worth the wait.

It's well worth a visit . They serve white wine too ! Full marks to the entire team at Noordzee for... More

We started our meal next door at and then had the soup, escargot, fried calamari, scampi and croquettes with white wine. Unfortunately mussels weren't in season but everything was so fresh and delicious

Nice stop for a quick bite. Those watching their weight can go for the grilled or raw options. No chairs, but tables to stand at. Enjoy the view of St. Catherine's. They close at 6pm.
