Le Cercle des Voyageurs is a nice looking restaurant next to Manneken Pis statue in the epicenter of Brussels. We had a huge amount of people, around 40, having dinner, and experienced really, really, really slow service.
It is understandable that it might take some time to cook and serve food for such a big party, but the whole dinner took more than four hours. First, we waited for the starters for two hours and then only one waitress took care of serving us. It took almost fifteen minutes to get food for everyone, and some were already eaten while others waited for the food. Then we waited for some for the main course, and again for the dessert.
The best parts are yet to come: a) all portions could have been made beforehand, as we had salmon carpaccio, meat pot, and tiramisu; b) the food was not that good — except for the tiramisu (that didn’t taste like a real tiramisu — I don’t like as it contains coffee — but something else that was better suited for my taste).
I left before the bill was given, so I cannot say how much more the people had to wait there.
