Depressing decor, rushed greeting and seating and tasteless, overcooked food. Only good thing about this place was that having complained about the food, we were quickly offered the choice to order something else or simply pay for the drinks - we chose the latter and left.

This restaurant has a great classy atmosphere. The waiters are among the friendliest I have ever seen (but they do tend to forget/mix up orders sometimes). The food is generally great.

This place serves solid, well executed traditional Belgian food in a pretty touristy area. The lunch menu is very good value at 18 euro for three courses, but what really sets this restaurant apart is the quality of the service, even in dealing with the dietary demands of my pregnant coeliac friend and our general apathy towards leaving the cosy...

If you wish to try real, traditional Belgian food, this is the place in Leuven! You can choose between veal rognons, eel in green, skate with capers, or carbonnades: all are delicious!

Lovely building, beautifully decorated for Christman. Very kind waiters who had no problem talking Dutch, French and English with me and the people in my company. They were kind and made some jokes which was appreciated. Also they took their time, no rushing you out of the restaurant :) The food was truly excellent. The portions were large.

One of the few restaurants that remain open while all the others close their kitchens between 3 and 5 p.m. Always nice waiters, who work hard and serve you as fast as they can. A bit pricey, but the quality is worth it.

We went here because we were visitors and wanted to have a good Belgian meal. This was recommended to us. Great outdoor seating on a side street. Very nice beer and wine selection. My salmon was great. My wife had a local favorite, a kind of chicken pot pie. She said it was good but she wished she had my... More

If you want to try typical Belgian cuisine, this is the place to go. There is wonderful outside seating on the terras and service is extremely professional. We had steak and mussels and both were absolutely delicious. Atmosphere is also very nice
