“typical spirit of liège”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

you should take the boulet frites, ready in 5 minutes, best boulet in town.
its not at all a fancy restaurant, you may sit with other people on the same table, but thats the nice thing about that cosy place.

“folklore”
Reviewed March 31, 2012

Everybody in Liege knows Guy and we always go back there each time we go back to
Liege. So much fun and when Guy has a couple of drinks, he starts to shout and jokes
with everybody, you have to have a sense of humor if you go there.
Liege would not be Liege without Lequet, it is an institution. Lets keep it.

“Meatballs with fries”
Reviewed November 23, 2009

If you are looking for any typical "Belgian" atmosphere, this is the place to go. I went there with my family and all the stories I heard about this place are true:
1) people come here to enjoy the meatballs with fries (only 8,5€)
2) very folksy atmosphere...large tables with white paper on it
3) The boss likes to drink and his voice is very loud when he has drunk a little...he yells through the restaurant
4) If Guy, the boss, don't like you, you're in trouble.... but if he likes you, he comes and drinks a beer with you...very emotional guy
5) the food is EXCELLENT !! The meatballs are prepared in a sauce with sirop of Liege, very typical
6) It is always full

The best "boulet-frites" that I have tasted in Liège. And what an atmosphere. Guy (the boss) is fantastic...
