Expert review of Sea Grill

Michelin-starred restaurant serving the best — and most expensive — seafood in town.

The Sea Grill reopened in September 2010 to much fanfare after a complete renovation. Head chef Yves Mattagne holds two Michelin stars and it’s easy to see why, the food is faultless — you’ll be a bit lighter of pocket by the end of the evening though.

Food and drink: 

It’s not all fish: dishes like mushroom risotto and deer fillet with elderberries also make an appearance. When you order from one of the set menus, portions are kept very small and are elegant works of art drizzled with jus, foams and other emulsions.

Recommended dishes: 

The restaurant’s signature dish is the lobster, which is prepared in front of you on a special table using a silver lobster press.

Ambience: 

The dining room is spacious, but a bit bland and corporate in my opinion and sports typical chain hotel décor, albeit with a scattering of shells here and there. Naturally, it’s very formal and you’ll need to be dressed smartly.

Service: 

The waiters are extremely accommodating and professional.

Location: 

Inside the Radisson Blu hotel, a short walk from the Grand-Place.

Price advice: 

Individual dishes on the à la carte menu are very expensive. Most people opt for the 5- or 8- course menus.
