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

A beautifully decorated place, with amazing teas to chose from, and fantastic books to read. Definitely a lovely place to stop at after seeing the Manneken Pis, and taking so many pictures! (And also all that chocolate you ate!) Staff is very lovely and helpful as well. Everything is very clean: tables, bathrooms, etc. When back to Brussels, I'll definitely... More

This is a nice restaurant with good well presented food at a good value. Seven of us had lunch there and all of us enjoyed our meal. The service was also good, helpful and friendly when we were there. This seems a more local restaurant with more locals and fewer tourist and with a menu that was more contemporary and... More
