I have had drinks here in the past but not eaten. atmosphere was ok - we had reserved a table and I was a bit disappointed with our table, right in the middle of the cafe when there were more private booths at the side. food...

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.

This is one of the best bars in Leicester. It's also just magnificent inside, you have to see it to believe it. Food is nice too

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

I just went to a brilliant beer tasting at this place and there are very knowledgable staff. The service is great and the food is excellent especially the mussels. I would definitely visit again the atmosphere is brilliant and I would definitely recommend this place to my friends and come back again soon.

We were given a GroupOn voucher for this restaurant as an Anniversary present. The building is impressive - it has a really fabulous domed ceiling is the main feature. However, things went wrong as soon as we arrived. We were seated and then left alone as there was only two staff waiting tables. Eventually we had to ask for drinks... More

Just arrived back from eating at Cafe Bruxelles. I had the Burger with Stilton cheese and chips. Wow! So much food and really fresh. I was asked how I would like the Burger cooked and it was cooked precisely how I like it. I was with friends and they had the Chicken Burger and Falafel Burger each, so we could... More

Fabulous offer starting from booking. Staff were really friendly and helpful, also very accommodating with booking dates and times. Great ambience, decent sized portions definitely recommend this but read the small print on the offer as there may only be a limited mains choice. What you get though is great food and great service.
