Everything about this place exudes style of a bygone era. It's become a regular meeting point for a drink or two before heading of to a preferred restaurant as it's so central (just off the Grand Place). Beer selection is better than average offering a reasonable choice in Belgian beers and some popular easy to drink lagers. Food selection is... More

Went here for our first lunch in Brussels... And am glad we did! Ordered for a salad and vegetarian cannelloni and some local tap beers. The quantity and quality were both really really good! The cannelloni is one of the best I've had in a long long time! The salad was super fresh and nicely seasoned. The staff was extremely... More

This little cafe, on the side of the Bourse, is a gem. You have to visit! It will be one of the last I think for service and quality from the days when you really did get something for your euro! It has a terrace but the inside of the cafe is decorated in old wood with brass and mirrors.... More

Stopped for coffee on our second last day in Brussels after shopping for Belgian chocolate gifts. This was an authentic Belgian cafe and we had wonderful great coffee and table service with a smile! Quiet spot not far from the Grand Place and we could people watch and talking be heard easily!

Very beautiful fin de siecle resto/café, Equally great on the terrace for a drink or inside the untouched interior

I'd say my favorite aspect of Le Cirio was the decor. Just makes you feel like you are someplace special. Was also appreciative of the waiter that made our evening nice from searching out English menus to helping us with beer and meal selections. It's comfort food with a broad range beyond just Belgium dishes (which came in handy for... More

We know this place since many years. Beautiful, old style. You can imagine how our ancestors were drinking a glass here. Don't stay on the terrace, go inside and check the interior, it's beautiful. Garçons are serving here in the good, old time way.

The restaurant decor is nice with wooden walls, and old staff that seemed to have been there forever. But the food was not up to what we expected. We had the mushroom croque monsieur, croquettes and French fries, everything was average. Disappointed.

A fantastic beerbar in central Brussels. Close to Grand Place and Place de Bourse. A small but good selection of beer and a fantastic staff. Worth Walking here!

It is a nice place to have a coffe or to eat something. We ordered a baguette with ham and cheese and it was tasty. It was not so expensive
