Not the most exciting square but wonderful eateries.

This square doesn't have any charm to it but the church at the end is quite exquisite. This area has some wonderful authentic belgian restaurants.

Beautiful square near the Dansart street. Lots of nice restaurants, bars and cafés. Have a beer @ Monk, try some oysters and white wine @ Noordzee and choose one of the restaurants to end your evening in style. PErsonally I love Fourneaux.

Just got here before a downpour. The church is one of the better ones in Brussels it has more character than the others which makes it that little more impressive. plus the cafes and shops near by are really nice to check out

The fish market is there and this automatically generates quite a bit of smell. Otherwise it is a beautiful place, offering a somewhat medieval feeling with its narrow streets.

A fun relaxed and vibes place with loads of superb eating spots. Check out Chez Jacques which is not yet on trip advisor but would get no 1 ranking from locals.

A very large Cathedral ,place on a site a little higher than the surrounding buildings , so it sticks out and easy to view. Don't get there after about 4.30 as it shuts early, worth a look inside.

It's worth wandering up from Grand Place to Place St Catherine. It's bustling with bars and restaurants with a beautiful view of a stunning church.
