In our 15th century Molenhuis or on our terrace beside the River Dyle, you can enjoy delicious, world cuisine and a drink.

As you will notice, we want to be more than just a café-restaurant. We aim to be a meeting place, a place where people meet – whatever their background – get to know and respect each other. This can be in the bar or during one of our many activities.

We are a world cuisine restaurant. This means that small and large groups can come to us for a culinary journey along the different continents. Our menu features both tapas and main courses and desserts. But for sandwiches or a delicious soup you’ve come to the right place.


ViaVia Mechelen also organizes all kinds of activities, sometimes in collaboration with its partners. Our events can be found on the site. Or you can subscribe to our monthly newsletter. You do this by sending an email to mechelen@viavia.world. For our activities, it is good to reserve in time.

Activities carried out in cooperation with our partner CultuurMolen vzw – such as the Intieme Zolderconcerten – can be booked on the website of the CultuurMolen itself. More information on how to reserve and what the conditions are, you can find it all at here.


Our menu changes montly. There are the main courses – in addition to our permanent values ​​the spaghetti bolognese or vegetarian lasagne with feta cheese and truffle oil – and there’s always the choice between a dish with chicken, fish or meat. Even vegetarians can spoil themselves culinary! Besides the lasagna there is an extra changing, vegetarian main course and there are always some vegetarian tapas on the menu.
