My boyfriend and I are travellers. We saw the name, we looked inside and thought 'cool'. We were greeted by a waitress who looked like she was on her lunch break but told us to have a seat and someone would be with us (we only speak English and she was speaking very good English to us as well). We... More

I went out for dinner with my wife on Wednesday 30th of July 2014. It's a nice place to have dinner, although, as we were sitting in the middle of the restaurant near the counter, it was quite noisy. Also, the music played a bit too hard. The server(s) were not able to help us in Dutch ... only English... More

Was looking for a non-typical, touristy place to have lunch, when I passed by this bar/restaurant. The facade, and what I could glimpse of the inside looked interesting, so decided to get a table outside. In nice weather, they have a few tiny tables lining the front, taking up the sidewalk -- not much for privacy and view, but adequate... More

We almost didn't come in because the menu seemed odd. But our first choice on the next block was fully booked, and we're so glad we came back to Le Cercle des Voyageurs. We liked it so much we returned a few nights later and were very satisfied both times. The seating offers more elbow room than other restaurants nearby.... More

I hate to have to give a bad restaurant review, but this place was a real disappointment for us. Friday evening, reservation, four adults. Place looks great when you walk in. Very funky, spacious, plenty of staff. Menu looked really interesting. Service and meal turned out to be really poor. Firstly, they forgot to cook one of the four main... More

Please never frequent this place if you're dutch speaking. They just love your money but hate your 'peasant' language and culture.

My husband and I passed this a couple of times, and it looked so inviting. Beautiful building, with a lovely entrance. Staff acknowledged us and welcomed us in, we hadn't booked but they were really accommodating. Staff were all multilingual, and made great recommendations. Food was delicious, and we'd already had food envy before ordering watching other diners enjoy their... More

We stumbled on this place as were wandering around thinking about what to have for lunch. It's a fascinating restaurant, bar, and art space. They were more than happy for people to just pop in for a coffee or drink, or a full meal. The building has been beautifully restored. The lunch menu dishes were Asian influenced (but not restricted... More
