We went to the cafe Bruxelles for cocktails and had a lovely experience. The staff are so friendly and the ceiling is absolutely amazing, the cocktails were brilliant, hence I am writing this just a little hungover !

I've always loved this bar and knew I wanted to visit during my hendo. The staff are so friendly and there is such a good atmosphere always! The DJ played great music all evening and the manager kept checking that we were all having a good time.

Visited this restaurant for the first time for years due to the wife having won a free meal in a raffle. The first visit represented good value for money and decent pub grub however it appears to have gone downhill. I had a prawn and smoked salmon cocktail for starters which was ruined by a watery tasteless sauce. My main... More

This cafe bar is located in the centre of Leicester. Well worth a visit just to view the ceiling and bar. The architecture is spectacular, so too is the range of Belgium bottled beers. When we visited there was also Grimbergen on draft.

Having recently moved back to Leicester after 10 years, a trip to Bruxelles was on the cards especially as early Autumn means perfect conditions for a bowl of mussels. Not much had changed in terms of decor and ambience, as always a great selection of beers, Duvel is a favorite. One little gripe was the size or portions, they are... More
