We loved our experience at Cipiace. By far they have the best cocktails in town, accompanying the amazing food they serve. We tried to tuna and the octopus and oh boy, they were heavenly. No kidding! Absolutely recommended, perfect for a night out celebrating life.

I came to Brussels just after spending two weeks in Milan and Turin, so one could have had too high expectations for an Italian restaurant in Belgium... Cipiace actually turned out to be really, really good. You can feel the respect for the Italian tradition...More

This is a lovely bar in central St. Gilles, offering a large selection of spirits and long-drinks at reasonable prices and in a relaxed atmosphere, incl. outside seating. Unfortunately, there are roadworks outside just now.

A really great restaurant, we started with cocktails, and some side-dishes. The overall-quality of the food was outstanding. But the cocktails... they were out of this world. Especially the "punch" cocktail, which came with a lot of ingrediënts you could add to your own taste,...More

A quirky place with a good selection of cocktails and some food. A lot of tables outside and a couple inside. Service was quite slow, but normal to belgian standards I guess. Plus it was Friday night. Staff speak English, but no menus in English,...More
