It was hard to find a place in liege… so this place looked decent! Service was good and friendly! Nothing to complain there! But the food lacked flavour! But the desserts and drinks were good!

We were told about this place by our Airbnb host. She particularly recommended we have the local speciality, the 'Boulet à la liégeoise'. It didn't disappoint.

Ate twice 2nd and 3rd november. First day, best steak we'd had this year. Second time it was the worst. Horrid fatty tasteless lump. There is no way this has been hung for 35 minutes let alone the 35 days claimed. Needless to say we...won't be going back.More

Despite translating what I wanted to eat using Google translate, I was glutened or exposed to beef or pork or am suffering from eating raw chicken. I asked for plain grilled chicken and explained I was allergic to the other meats but the chicken pieces...I got were way too flavorful to be plain grilled chicken. Another issue was the chicken was not fully cooked. Either way, I have been stuck in my hotel room sick since about an hour after I ate there. If you read my reviews you know I will sing the praises of a plain piece of chicken even if it’s tough like leather because it’s safe. Not being picky here. My goal is just to not get sick. If you look at the pictures you can see the undercooked chicken. My spouse and daughter liked their chicken sandwiches and fries so it was great for them. I’m not condemning the place, it’s not safe for allergies.More

The place was busy and it took a while for the dishes to arrive. Had vol au vent, liked the chicken but not the sauce. However, they had very, very good fries.

We waited for one hour for getting cold meat and burnt pasta. Expensive for the quality of the food.

Good address for red meat lovers! Excellent mature beef of Irish or Argie origin or even from Down Under! Also typical Liège specialities such as their 'boulets sauce lapin' - meatballs with a special gravy, quite good. Home made chips. Have a terrace. Close to...the cathedral.More

went here with a group. All dishes arrived at the same time and warm. The meat was cooked as ordered. Of all the starters and mains we had, just the cheese croquettes were a bit disappointing. But everything else: top. Try the sardines as an...appetizer!More

this little 'brasserie' is perfect for a lunch or a great meal with friends. Just next to 'le carré', the famous part of Liège, the food is really good quality for a fair price. The servers are sympathetic, really polite and attentive to your needs....It's a good address to discover local and not so local food too :-)More

Don't be fooled by the name, which might lead you to think that you'll be eating at a simple diner. The food is beautiful and served with a smile. The waiters, while busy, were catering to our every need. We went on a Friday night...and the restaurant was packed. Yet the booths give you privacy, which was nice. We ordered restaurant-style food for my partner, while I stuck to the bistro-like recipes. Both were delicious, obviously prepared fresh on the premises and presented in a very appetizing way. We had the hamburgers and the steak, and both were done to perfection. I can recommend the salmon as a starter, it was to die for. We will certainly return to what turned out to be an excellent choice of restaurant in the heart of Liège.More

La Cafetaria is surely not for romantic dinners given its loud interior and "American diner" flair. But if you like quick 'n tasty food and Belgian beer for reasonable prices then this location is surely where you may want to stop. The staff is friendly...although they seem to struggle with English.More
