Cowfish is well located just off the Blvd de Waterloo and close to centre of town, in a small street with easy access.
The design and decoration, with lots of brick stone walls and wood, makes this a rather intimate place and. The light is dimmed.
The menu comes as a concept of two, three or four dishes to be choosen from starters, mains and desserts.
Food is good, just good. Some flavours maybe a bit too ‘original’ for certain pallets.
I found the service ok, but not very friendly or charming. And to my taste, even if we had a business lunch, there was a certain rush I didn’t like.
Not sure I’ll return ...

We found this place by happenstance. It was small but nicely appointed. The food was outstanding. The quinoa was excellent and the asparagus was to die for. The beef tataki was also exceptional. The only underwhelming dish was the quesadilla - it was average. But all in all, worth a visit for lunch!

Never been treated so poorly by a restaurant manager. Food is excellent - cannot be faulted but is ruined by a rude and insulting manager. After questioning a mistake on the bill, the manager came over to berrate the entire table agressively. Give it a miss.

Visited from England, totally English friendly which was lovely. Had a three course meal, couldn’t be faulted. Staff were brilliant and couldn’t recommend more. Will be back.

I have been to cowfish many times and the menu is different each time. I have never had a bad dish. The presentation and the meals are outstanding. The staff is always very helpful.

My absolute must is the Black Label dessert. (Better known as chocolate lava cake in the US.) It was the inspiration behind my life motto to never turn down Belgian chocolate!
