We came here after a recommendation from a staff member at our hotel, when we were looking for somewhere to eat. Neither of us are big fish lovers, but we were told half the street is fish and the other is about meat - all we saw were fish restaurants. So not ideal for us, but if you love seafood... More

This is the site of the old central fish market. It is now a large plaza and the home of many of the best seafood restaurants in Brussels. Easy to get to on the subway and some nice fountains with the church in the background. Nice place to stroll around.

We were advised by some locals to go a bit further past the Grote Markt to find an area that is frequented by locals. Unfortunately I think we were there far too early in the afternoon but even then the place was buzzing with bars and restaurants using all the outside areas to enjoy the beautiful day. We wandered over... More

Place Ste Catherine is a very enjoyable place, especially in the Summer with all the terraces, under the trees. It's very cosy! Plenty of restaurants and bars in the area and for all types of budgets! The Fish market is just around the corner with even more restaurants and bars and it also welcomes the Brussels Christmas Market.

As my hotel was beyond 300 on Louise Avenue, I hopped on bus 38 to De Bruckere and after its terminal I just had to walk 300 meters to the St. Catherine's Church and nominated place. The weather was lovely with "plein soleil" (full sunshine) last May and the Church presented both its faces: the white cleaned entrance facade and... More

During December and beginning of January, the Place Sainte-Catherine/Sint-Kathelijn sees "Plaisirs d'Hivers/Winterpret". I go there every year. There is an open air skating ring, a Christmas market, usually a touristic exhibition. And of course the permanent attractions of the place: a lot of excellent restaurants, affordable hotels, open air degustation of oysters (not for me), all open until late. I... More
