It was great to stumble upon such an unexpectedly restful restaurant just steps away from the tourist drag. I was only in Brussels for the day so had to have moules frites and beer. Both were lovely and I very much enjoyed the broth thar my mussels were cooked in. A lovely spot.

The food! Wow! I had the Tokyo Coco, and it was so good! The risotto cakes (coconut and curry) were to die for. The steaks were ENORMOUS! The only hiccup was the service, at times. It was hard to get more drinks.

Went there for a brunch, it was a very nice and unexpected discovery in the centre of the city.Relaxing atmosphere, ethnic music and beautiful decoration with books, maps and suitcases that make your mind travel. The personnel is very welcoming The brunch was very good and filling. The only reason I didn't rate it with the highest score is because... More

A very pleasant welcoming bar cum restaurant with a proper menu a short distance from the Grand Place. Lovely atmosphere with a live singer and friendly staff. Food very good.

We had excellent food at Le Cercle....we especially liked the fish tartar and the beef tartar. The only problem was the service. Once we were waited on, it seemed like the waiters disappeared from the outside terrace. We had to look for oil and vinegar for our salad, and our wine was not served till the end of the meal....

We took the vegetarian options and were just allright, as well as the wine. The restaurant is different and well decorated. A good different option.
