Fishermen sailed (and later steamed) into the heart of Brussels, selling their fresh fish in this charming square. Many of the fishmongers who peddled here decided to stay, and now this whole neighborhood is teeming with seafood spots. During the day this is a teeming fish market, and it's one of the oldest in the city. You can find luxurious restaurants as well as stalls where you can barter for the freshest catch.
