Had a great meal here. Warmly greeted by the chef/waiter. Absolutely gorgeous scallops, beautiful steak and sole and delicious desserts! Fantastic dining experience.

Stayed at hotel in the neighborhood and found the reviews for Restaurant Sainte-Catherine on Tripadvisor. Experience was amazing! TINY restaurant (no more than 8 tables) that is like eating at a good friend's house. Open kitchen managed by wonderful proprietor who personally cares for every order. Meal started with smoked salmon on toast and a shot (not sure what of,... More

This is by far the best, most unrecogized restaurant out there. Simply wonderful, can't say enough about it. Owner close to retirement, so go soon!

Been in Brussels 3 nights and went to this restaurant 2 nights in a row. I came alone and was greeted well by the waiter & chef, both of whom took time out to talk away and have a joke or 2. Was given a complimentary salmon slice with bread and cheese from the chef. They have 2 set menus... More

Ate with a party of eight and the service was superb. Felt like a neighborhood restaurant you'd gone to all your life. The mussels were great and the amount was huge. The sole and filet were also outstanding.

Welcomed with a shot of Slivo. Had a fixed price dinner. Salad, salmon (or steak) and dessert. I had salad. Fresh cut veggies topped with Shenken Speck. Main of Salmon, baked potato, steamed vegetables. Cooked medium rare. Perfect. Dessert was chocolate mousse. Thick and rich, with a bit of whipped cream on top. Lovely.

On arriving in Brussels, we immediately went searching for moules et frites. Sadly we found this place. From the outside and indeed when we entered it looked just the sort of place we had been looking for. The waitress was hospitable and promptly took our order. Eventually, after more than 30 minutes (there were 2 other tables who arrived after... More

This is a small cosy restaurant tucked away but well worth a visit. There is only the chef and the waiter there but they are friendly and the food served is very good and of a high quality and presented very well. The house wine was also tasty. Reasonably priced.

Well, everything was different here. The owner/chef/waiter/dish washer greeted us warmly saying: "Seat wherever you want"... After a while he asked what we want, but we didn't have the menu. Forget the menu! Just describe what would you want. He will make ir taste better then you dreams. My wife wanted mules, but owner said that he forgot to buy... More
