nice terrace !

Friendly service and nice terrace to sit even during winter times (terrace heaters are available). You can see that this cafe is well known amongst locals.

Spent nice evening in the venue. Service was good, food is awesome and really nicely presented. Place is overcrowded and tables are relatively small, however timing of food preparedness was quite OK. Keep in mind that after the dinner it's not so easy to get a taxi in Genk.

Took mussels which were seasoned and really fresh. With the garlic cream and some bread, it tasted so well! The service boy was nice and had quite some jokes with us.

Nothing more, nothing less than a typical Belgian tavern, which you can find in almost every town. One strong asset, they have a large terrace overlooking town square and this place is near the shopping centre.

This restaurant has developed over the years I have been going to it into a very popular bistro restaurant offering a wide range of meals. The first time I went here was with a business group and I always try to get a meal here when in Genk. Their steaks are to die for. Can get very busy, but do... More

I have eaten here several times. The food is always nice. They serve a classic Belgian Brasserie cuisine, nothing fancy but what they serve is good. I don't like to sit inside (not very cosy) but I love the big terrace on the main market of Genk. Good value for your money. As it is always crowded, you must endure... More

I'm a regular visitor of the "Stadscafe" with business clients. The location is very close to the central parking. You can sit outside and inside on the first and second floor. The menu is complete but nothing stands out. The food is good, but nothing more. After your order the waiting time can be a bit long during lunch rush... More

We were staying a Saturday overnight in Genk travelling back to UK from Germany and rather than be boring and eat in the hotel, we walked around the town and ended up here. So we just turned up without a reservation. Shortly after we arrived a group of Belgians staying at the same hotel turned up looking as though they... More
