Had a great meal here. Warmly greeted by the chef/waiter. Absolutely gorgeous scallops, beautiful steak and sole and delicious desserts! Fantastic dining experience.

“An amazing find - and a unique dining experience!”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

Stayed at hotel in the neighborhood and found the reviews for Restaurant Sainte-Catherine on Tripadvisor. Experience was amazing! TINY restaurant (no more than 8 tables) that is like eating at a good friend's house. Open kitchen managed by wonderful proprietor who personally cares for every order. Meal started with smoked salmon on toast and a shot (not sure what of, but owner assured me it would help digestion!) I ordered the sole meuniere and it came with delicious vegetables. It was perfect. Also watched the prep of some other meals that looked even better than mine. Fresh cut fillets, sauteed mushrooms, even the salad looked crazy good - topped with handful of fresh cooked bacon. Don't miss it - a wonderful way to spend an evening!

“I travel extensively, this is the best place I have ever been.”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

This is by far the best, most unrecogized restaurant out there. Simply wonderful, can't say enough about it. Owner close to retirement, so go soon!

“Tremendous food, great value in a great restaurant”
Reviewed 7 May 2014 via mobile

Been in Brussels 3 nights and went to this restaurant 2 nights in a row. I came alone and was greeted well by the waiter & chef, both of whom took time out to talk away and have a joke or 2. Was given a complimentary salmon slice with bread and cheese from the chef. They have 2 set menus at €25 & €35. 1st night I had €25 menu which was garlic mushrooms for starter, steak and chips main and chocolate moose for desert. The size and cut of steak was enormous and delicious. With 2 local beers on top it came to €31.
2nd night was €35 menu with scampi starter, Argentinian beef & chips for main and creme caramel desert. Again everything was excellent portions and cooked to perfection. With 1 local beer it was €38. I honestly can't recommend this restaurant enough. Great ambience, food and host. You won't be disappointed. Oh and the chef likes to turn his music up if a good tune comes on which I thought was a.food touch.

“Cozy restaurant with excellent food”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

Ate with a party of eight and the service was superb. Felt like a neighborhood restaurant you'd gone to all your life. The mussels were great and the amount was huge. The sole and filet were also outstanding.
