    The owner - always - welcomes you in a warm and personal way. I was introduced to La Marée when the restaurant was in the very early years, I presume. Since, the quality of the ingredients and the careful preparation have remained highly consistent and top level; the menu has a clear focus on Belgian fish dishes. Most likely, the woman-chef will great you at the table at the end of the service. Over the years, La Marée has gotten well-known while keeping a quite large group of steady patrons. Lately, the location on the Vlaamse Steenweg has become an additional plus given the proximity of trendy café's for an after-dinner.

    French fries were not fresh (congelated). Mussels were taste less. Very disappointed. It used to be a top quality restaurant. Today I felt like it was a restaurant for tourists.

    We're from out of town (Munich) but stop at La Maree at least once on each visit to Brussels. It's simply our favorite restaurant and our experience is always exceptional. Highly recommended!

    We first ate here 25 years ago. In that time the menu has not changed and the quality has been consistent. The food is just excellent. The fish soup is to die for and the steamed cod and the sole meunière out of this world. Having moved away from Brussels we had not been here for some time. Mario and Theresa have a jewel of a restaurant. Consistently brilliant.

    What an excellent find, this is a fantastic place to eat. Great personal and attentive service. The food was delicious with very generous portions, we both had mussels and had no reason to regret our choice. This is a highly recommended place to eat.

    Amazing food and atmosphere. We had the garlic mussels, shrimp croquettes, sole and house mussels. Everything tasted fantastic and the service was exceptional. Such a warm, inviting and friendly place. Simple, relaxed but brilliant food - will definitely recommend to any friends visiting Brussels!

    A very nice meal: the parmesan cheese croquettes are decadent and worth it, the smoked salmon appetizer was also very good - the salmon is flavorful but not overly salty, and not oily. The accompanying toasts were a little on the bland/dry side. The mussels were quite good - plump and tender - though many were a little gritty. The frites were only so-so: not hot, not the best texture. We weren’t there for the frites so not a big deal.

    The restaurant has a cozy atmosphere, useful for family events, the quality of the sea food was excellent, also homemade desserts (mousse) were nicely light and quite refreshing, (white) wine selection of high quality, champagne was a bit pricey but still acceptable for special occasions.
