Across from the Bourse this lovely old fashioned bar (dated 1886) is a great place to drop in for lunch or a beer. The decor is beautiful and the staff are very friendly. We stopped for lunch and a beer, the food was simple and...More

You scope and find your own table as you enter. Tight spaces but makes it cozier. The Belgian beers are served with a matching glass with the same name. The food was wholesome and delicious. We had the hearty beef stew and the salmon pasta....More

Excellent service, good value and a charming 1920s interior. Waiters in waistcoats and bow ties. This is a great spot to rest and recharge after a day of exploring, the Cava was a very nice touch.

My experience at Le Cirio couldn't have been better. I had the carbonnade (Flemish stew) which I've come to love in all my visits to Belgium. It was amazing, so rich and tender and perfect. I also had the frites which gave the palate a...More
