We are definitely going to return for more! The food was excellent. I have been in many first class restaurants, in the nicest hotels all over the world. This chef does not need to any take lessons from many Michelain starred chefs in what concerns cooking fish and seafood to perfection. The staff is also very nice and the atmosphere... More

We took the advice of fellow Trip Advisors and sought this place out. We were not disappointed. The only reason I have not given full points for service was that we came in after a bus load of German tourists so had to wait a while for service. Mind you, we enjoyed a conversation with the Germans in half English/German... More

The owner is very active among his guests. His connection to people is what makes this place rewarding. I have not even mentioned the food, which was delicious, and perfectly... More

Our Lamb and Beef filet were OUTSTANDING! Cooked to perfection, juicy and full of flavor. We were in the mood for meat and veggies and found Sainte Catherine online. It was a few minutes walk from our hotel and decided to check it out. So glad that we did! We called ahead to find out about their menu and when... More

I've been to this restaurant twice now - once for lunch and most recently for dinner. Both times I was blown away by the quality of the food, the friendly service, and the value. A delicious three course lunch including wine for 20 Euros?!? Dinner (with wine and dessert) tonight was equally good value for only 35 Euros! Whatever you... More

I went to the Sainte-Catherine restaurant in a Friday night with some friends who were visiting Brussels. The restaurant is small, cosy, run from a family and open kitchen. You feel you are at home and have your food cooked with love. You can have a 3 plates menu for 25 euro. I had an amazing salad with Roquefort cheese,... More

We were in Brussels in the "off season." We had tried two other restaurants rated higher on Trip Advisor, but found both of them to be closed. Fortunately, this place was open and were lucky to be the only ones in the restaurant for lunch. The owner and his wife were very welcoming and the food was incredible - with... More

Based on the absolutely fabulous reviews, I had some very high expectations for this restaurant. With that said, Restaurant Saint-Catherine was very good but not great. My two friends and I were looking for something good but did not want a long and drawn out three hour meal. We were very pleased. The small and intimate atmosphere was wonderful. We... More
