Went there on 26th October for dinner. The interior is cleverly decorated and altogether very nice. Unfortunately that is where "nice" ended. My partner ordered a starter which was good. I didn't order a starter but I opted to have the starter portion of Calamari as a main course, for the advertised supplement. First of all they tried to serve... More

After walking around the many tourist restaurants we were desperate for a quieter place with locals as customers. We got the only spare table at 9pm on a Monday night, nice aireyroom with s spectacular wall of old suitcases, nice quiet Brazilian tunes playing, just the atmosphere we wanted after our journey from London. Good cocktails came quickly, and we... More

Taking our usual Sunday morning walk around Brussels we happened upon Le Cercle des Voyageurs near the Manneken Pis just around lunch time. It was fairly empty when we arrived about midday. We were welcomed by a delightful waitress, who looked after us beautifully throughout the lunch. We both took the Texas burger, which was very well cooked, not too... More

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
