Brasserie du Lac

Moored on the peaceful Genval lake like a noble vessel, the Brasserie du Lac is one of the Brabant Wallon region's most popular gourmet addresses. Run by Michel Grenier with passion and professionalism, this establishment flies the flag of the Belgian brasserie tradition. The menu is wonderfully varied and adorned with classics, seasonal dishes, maritime marvels and the best-sellers of a Chef who has earned his spurs with the best. This is a great place to put your feet under the table and enjoy the quick, efficient and attentive service. The dishes are to die for, with highlights such as the home-made grey shrimp croquettes, fish soup with rouille sauce, sole meunière, cod steak with a mousseline sauce or prime cut of beef with shallots…. And true to its watery backdrop, Brasserie du Lac also serves fabulous fresh shellfish from its on-site stall, with a choice of 6 families of cupped oyster, 3 families of flat oyster, clams, sea almonds, sea urchins, mussels, scampi and whelks served at the oyster bar or as a platter.
