We went there this Sunday after a visit of the Liege Sunday market along the river. It is a very typical place in Liege. Very authentic atmosphere. Mr Lequet is warmly welcoming his clients and he is very funny. We ate very good meat balls. Best I ever had in Liege. I recommend going there to try them while also... More

We came here because we wanted to try the traditional boulette liegeoise and the receptionist at our hotel recommended it. What she failed to tell us is that this is really just a place for locals and that non-French speaking tourists are not welcome. My family and I arrived about 15 minutes prior to opening because it took us less... More

I ate more than once at this cafe: I live in Liège and I like to take my friends and relatives there. The "must eat" is the traditional dish of Liège: boulette liégeoise et frites. It is a meatball in bitter-sweet sauce and Belgian fries (please do not call them French). I really love this dish and I think that... More

This is a typical place where to eat the "boulet frites" from liege. I recommend it since it is definitively something you should try if you go to Liege.

This café is very well known in Liege. Some local people take the lunch or diner there. But frankly, I come for its famous atmosphere, because its patron is very special and therefore he gives a very special atmosphere. But if you dislike the fast eating or being sent out by the patron, do not go there during the mealtime.

This is what we call in Belgium a 'bruine kroeg' (brown bar). This is the type off bar that is not well lighted, cozy has a no nonsense atmosphere. Imagine a Irish pub. This is this kind off place. You come here for a pint and the meatballs. The meatballs are perfect and fresh. The meat used is super. The... More

A friend advised us to go there for lunch after La Batte (the sunday market). You have to wait for max. 30 minutes to find a spot but service is fast and the local specialties are the best.

We are always searching for the 'real deal' for food when travelling to other countries - and thanks to the recommendations for this particular restaurant, we scored in Liege. The location is a very short walk from the centre of town through a network of narrow pedestrian-only thoroughfares for the most part. The interior of the restaurant is wonderful and... More
