I was staying in a hotel just outside Genk during a weekend course and decided to pop in to gab a coffee and a light lunch while reading a couple of chapters of my book. Sat outside (super warm halogen heaters) and was really warm, which isn't bad for Mid October. Friendly staff with adequate English for me to order... More

We had excellent mussels, looking a the same time to the EK on a great TV screen in front of terrace. Ambiance was great and we enjoyed. Service was ok and fast. In 3 days we went 2 times so this rates it enough.

Went often to this place - you could call it a "Brasserie". Good pricing. Excellent service. Fast and nice. A lot of outdoor tables in the summer.

We visited this Restaurant on our third evening in Genk with 10 friends. We had not booked but were maybe out of season. 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...
