This is a perfect place for meeting friends for a chilled lunch, dinner or drinks.

As with all "lounges" the vibe is chilled & the atmosphere laid back.
The food is very good, fresh & the wait isn't too long even when it's busy.

Gets busy in the day with Yummies that take over the place with pushchairs but as this is a large "lounge" compared to some it's not too bad.

Staff friendly and the usual young hip & trendy mould as with all "lounges" but very friendly & helpful.

Had a lovely lunch here with my young daughters. Very chilled atmosphere and welcoming staff. Got some nice touches for kids including boxes of games you can take to your table, colouring stuff and water station. Staff very flexible with menu. We had veggie kedgeree and kids shared a hot dog. Lovely! Can't wait to go back and try and brekkies!

Lovely place with nice terrace to soak the sun in.

We have visited with our small son and friends and were delighted that didn't feel unwelcome (in many restaurants you can feel this way when you have children). Staff was really great at accommodating our requests as our son can be a bit fussy when it comes to his food.

food tasted great and was reasonably priced.

Nice, welcoming place and we will be visiting again.

This is always a good place for lunch. Imaginative menu, lots of interesting drinks and casual service. We always drop in here now when visiting Westbourne and would recommend it.

We do provide quality fresh produce and always friendly service.

Our menus do have extensive choice and plus we are serving food until late in the evening so would be very happy to welcome you not only for lunch, but also evening time!

I go to Circo Lounge on a regular basis and will keep coming back. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. Me and my girlfriend have lived in Westbourne for under a year, and one thing that stuck out for us was the warm attitude of the staff. One especially (John I think his name was), he remembered us after only a couple of short visits even though we were very new to the area. I think this personal touch was especially important to us, as we didn't know the area well beforehand, so it was really nice to feel welcomed like that.

The food is great! Love the tapas choice. Really cater well for vegans too, really impressed that their is a separate menu!

If I was to make a criticism, it would be music choice! But it's a very small price to pay for an all round lovely place to visit anytime, with friends, family, or even alone.
