Loved it ! I was in the area and i followed the lovely smell ! Simple sea food but extremely tasty and paired perfectly with a glass of wine! Service was great as they had the patience to explain the various items on offer in perfect English and with a smile! Definitely recommended!

A few people recommended this place. It was about a 10 minute walk from the Grand Place. The fish is fresh and tastes amazing. It is not expensive and come out quickly. Rather than eat inside, we opted to eat at tables outside St. Catherines.

One of my favorite places to eat in Brussels from all the restaurants we tried during our visit. It is a really casual seafood restaurant with few interior tables but most people elect to eat standing at tables on Place St Catherine. The food was really fresh and very affordable. A definite must for every seafood lover visiting Brussels.

Great, authentic Belgian seafood. Seating inside the oyster bar next door is lovely. Super fun, get ready to try some quirky dishes!

This place is seriously addictive. When sun comes up in Brussels and you're stuck in the city, come here!!! Fish is super fresh, oysters are addictive and the care of the staff is extraordinary! Thank you for making this weekend another awesome experience!
