Lovely lunch in picturesque cafe

Stopped for a quick lunch when our tour group visited Dinant. We were on a schedule, so stepped up to the bar for service. We got meatballs in a lovely onion sauce with delicious frites, enjoyed with Orval, the local abbey beer. Really lovely!

We really like the food in this restaurant there is always a lot of choice of food. The only thing we dislike is that the service is slow and you have to wait at least 20-40 minutes to get served. But it is worth the wait. It is recommended to reserve in advance because it is always full !

We stopped here on a tour of Ardennes. The location is great, on the river, by Quay1. Immediately upon entering, we were met with a smiling face, offered a balcony seat and asked to wait for no more than 2 minutes while the table was prepared The lunch was delicious and service continued to be excellent. Great cafe!

After some waiting the waitress came, handed us menue cards (withou asking if we even wated to eat). She came back and we ordered... More

Excellent 'ambiance' - homey, but not messy! Excellent food, excellent service. Right on the river - so great views. We had something ordinary - veggie cous-cous and Trout, but it was very well done, and the creme brule for dessert was great. I don't write many reviews but this place deserved one.

This brasserie/restaurant is very well located by the river in the centre of Dinant. We, two families of a total of seven people, were found ourselves there almost accidentally as we had not timely reserved any other place. The food is good, of a quality expected in such an establishment. The service is average, but efficient though. Overall, either for... More

This is a nice location for a spot of lunch or dinner in the town, food good but service didn't come with a smile, prices a little above average but pleasant clean cafe bar on the river.

We had lunch at the Leffe Cafe which is located right across from the cathedral main entrance. We ordered lasagne, the Liege meatballs and an entrecôte steak with pepper creme sauce. The service was prompt and food did not take long. It arrived at the same time and all three dishes tasted very good. The salad on the plate was... More
