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.

It's a nice place, near my home.I have been there a few times to enjoy a good coffee with friends. It is also a romantic place, working from morning till night. In summer it is very busy, so you need to arrive early. They offer food dishes from simple to sophisticated, for everyone

I live in Genk and go here often. The food is always good quality and the service excellent. Great to watch the world go by as its situated in the square. Coffee and cake a steal at 5 euro if you fancy something sweet.

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
