Nice and with Fish Restaurants

With great Christmas atmosphere was surrounded by posts and a carousel. Surrounded by fish restaurants since it was the fish market square. To recommend.

During the winter it is not easy to spot a good place for dinner but the chances in this area are higher than the central plaza. Quaint area to walk around.

We stayed just behind the square so visited this place. It is quite nice to look at with quite a bit going on, but doesn't really hold the interest for any great length of time. Not worth visiting specially.

in this area you may find great places to eat, excellent coffee shops and some second hand shop if you look closely, just walk around and i'm sure you'll find something interesting

St. Catherine is a small but nice square next to the Fish Market and not far from the Grande Place. In this square there are many restaurants and cafes, mostly with seafood. There are also medieval monuments such as ``Tour Noire`` that is a part of old city walls and the tower of old St. Catherine church. The present St.Catherine... More

My hotel was across the road from St Catherine's - which is at the head of the old fish market, leading to the canal. The Neo-gothic church has an abundant number of flying buttresses, some beautiful stained glass and provides solitude from the crowds. I was pleasantly surprised by the number, variety and quality of the restaurants and bars in... More

We spent 4 nights in Brussels from 30 December to 3 January and visited the Christmas market at Place Sainte Catherine numerous times. There is a wide variety of food here. We enjoyed an amazing gourmet hot dog which must have been a foot long, in a fresh baguette, with fried onions, mustard and ketchup. For €5! This was amazing... More

There is a ferris wheel and lots of market stalls to look over at by the church. If you get into the ferris wheel, it is possible to see the Atomium from afar. The church is partially cleaned and restored on one side, but the main face is very worn. It is possible to go inside and sit in the... More

We only went because of the Ferris wheel. When we got there we started buying food and enjoying the view and ambiance. We loved it so much that we went back the next day at night to enjoy even more.
