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.

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.

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.

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
