Concierge.com's insider take:
Don't let the run-on name intimidate you. It means "fish on the Schelde" (and sounds like it, too), as in the Netherlands' Schelde River or the restaurant's address on Scheldeplein—streets here in the Rivierenbuurt district of town are named for Dutch rivers. So, it's fitting that this place serves some of the city's most imaginatively prepared fish and seafood. The menu changes seasonally, but you might start with Fines de Claires oysters, a Dutch shrimp cocktail with tomato-cognac sauce, or sashimi (tuna, mackerel, sea bass, etc.) with wasabi and ginger, then move on to sea bream on chanterelle ravioli or lobster fresh from the tank. The location, practically across from the RAI convention center, means that Visaandeschelde receives its share of business guests, but the upscale, unfussy service allows even casual visitors to make the most of a meal here.
Open Mondays through Fridays noon to 12:30 pm and 5:30 to 11 pm, Saturdays and Sundays 5:30 to 11 pm.
