Since the Highcross Shopping Centre was developed from the original Shires Centre, the area around the Showcase Cinema has become almost a food court with a wide variety of restaurants to suit any diner. Some of them are rather overpriced for what they are and visitors to Leicester might like to try one or two of the eateries on the... More

Good from the outside, spectular inside, a good looking bar and fabulous ceiling. The only downside in the interior was the upholstery which really didn't fit in. The food was excellent - my partner positively drooled over the mussels. It very inexpensive for the quality. Drink was dear, but then it was imported beer. Background music was very good -... More

Look, there's a lot of competition within 100 yards of this place - so the owners of Cafe Bruxelles have to just go and mystery shop just about anything in the vicinity (not least GBK, as the Cafe Bruxelles Groupon offer we used was for a cheaply priced burger) to see what is wrong with their offering...which is, to make...

We visited on a Tuesday at 5pm and the place was empty so no atmosphere at all. My husbands mussels were great but my steak was overdone and the ready of the meal was just a greasy mess. The staff were great, the only good thing about the whole experience.

I was very surprised when we walked into this place. I t was traditionally French with a lovely ornate domed roof. We went on a Friday afternoon using Groupon voucher, which gave us a choice of a starter and a main course each, followed by coffee. To start with my husband had salmon and crab fishcakes, and I had Garlic... More
