Good food, nice place

We ordered carbonade flamande and to drink a pint of Leffe. The food was ok, but the nicest think is the restaurant itself. Seems like not many things have changed since its inauguration in the XIX century!!!

Cafe le cirio is one of the most intimate and elegant fin de siecle cafes in Brussels unbelievable interior with staff dressed accordingly. The price reflects the cafe and the area but i think it is a must go cafe just to sit inside to admire the interior even the tiolets are cool.Only had local beer from tap but will... More

This was in our travellers guide pocket book. It's unlike any bar I have visited before. Two minutes from Grand Place (if walking in the right direction :-)) it's waistcoat ed waiters make you feel very welcome. This bar stays close to it's original 1800s heritage and for a moment you almost feel as though you are drinking in that... More

It is a beautiful bar. My wife and I had spotted it online and wanted to look in as it looks fantastic. We found a table and were served reasonably promptly. There is a large beer selection and small wine list. We were undecided wether to eat so just had a drink. It isn't very welcoming and the house wine... More

I went to Le cirio with 2 friends because our map had recommendation on it. We were expecting a classy place and very polite waiters and I got the exact opposite. We seated at a table in the center of the place (it was very empty at the time) and there was only one menu available. I choose to have... More

First, interior appearances were very impressive. Inside is like a mixture of old west America and Victoria era England. The walls were decorated with old photos, dolls, and few statues. Even the restroom doors have the retro look. Waiters dressed for the era too. What about the drinks and food? Cappuccino drinks were the best I have ever consumed! Sandwiches... More

If you visit Brussels you must call here. It is a step back in time with the décor, the atmosphere and the table service by traditional waiters. The menu covers an array of beers and food to suit all tastes and the price is very reasonable. Well worth a visit or two.....

A fantastic spot to pop in to on an afternoon or an evening. Good selection of beer, snacks, hot drinks, their classic half and half. Served in wonderful atmospheric surroundings and with long-serving efficient staff,

Can't comment on the food as we did not eat in here. The choice of beer though is very good and the décor is brilliant. Loved the old world toilets!
