  • Not a special place found me Ste square. Catherine, although has great atmosphere and its around there are many places where you can drink or eat.

  • Great place, just living right with its small restaurants and terraces. And at least there are fewer tourists than Belgian

  • Very nice place, numerous restaurants around, one better than the other (I don't know them all, but the ones I know are excellent), for those who like to fish and seafood options are broader still.
