A very welcoming atmosphere, lively but not too loud so ideal if you are on your own, for couples or groups. The waiters were readily on hand if needed but not overbearing. The food was absolutely beautiful,... More

Arrogant service, mediocre food, only advisable for a quick drink on the terrace if all other places are full. Bad service in general but this evening was the worst of all. On 30/12 at 22:30h chased away by the waiter while 40 people in total were still present.. Closing hour that day was 1:00h. They put Off the outside heating... More

Been here a few times now. The food is okay-ish, the service is below what it should be. Can't really recommend this place to be honest...

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.
