Love the fish restaurants around the long "canal-like" place.My favourite is the Hutriere and my favourite there are the moules! Can be noisy at times though...

We visited Brussels in late November, not the best time of year. Place St.Catherine proved to be a must. The Christmas fair was being prepared, same as in many other places of the city, which actually spoiled the whole image with the scaffoldings, without the glamour that follows. However, Place St.Catherine was still charming, with its long and airy space and beautiful façades. It is correct to say that some of the Seafood restaurants are not always the best and are tourist-focused. However, we did our research beforehand (Trip Advisor included) and our choice was excellent, as you can see in my review of the restaurant. The church is very interesting and there are some beautiful shops around and a market-place-ambience (however low tone) in the greater area that make the Place a worthwhile attraction in Brussels, and an original one.

Thank Tzatzak

This is unfortunately one of those places that were in vogue once upon a time and the restaurants (mainly seafood) charge high prices for limited veriety... Today the food quality has gone and tourists are the intended "victims"

In winter there is a nice xmas fair. Besides that its an unspectacular place with lots of restaurants, that are as in most parts of Brussels overpriced but tedentially a bit better than in the very city center.

The best fish restaurants in Brussels frequent this area with Jacquesand Rugbman (Nos 1 &2) being the most well-known but there are manyothers to compete. This area offers a more refined restauarnt quartier than tourist afflicted Rue des Bouchers and the restaurants have prices to match.
