This was the first restaurant I ever went to in Leuven on a magical evening 5 years ago. Today I had lunch at the same table and it was just as wonderful. Try to get one of the tables by the windows looking onto the Tiensestraat or a table somewhere in that elegant room. Notice the beautiful wood, brass, coat... More

As a family we've been going to this restaurant on a regular base. The quality of the food, the ambiance, the service, it's all there. You can come as you are, no pretentious chique, always a great night out. Check the wine-list, there are some awesome wines on there. Ask Tim or Koen they will get you sorted! Cheers! Marco

We normally look up restaurants on TA before we travel to a city and visit restaurants high in the ratings. On this occasion we didn't and I am so pleased as we would have dismissed this wonderful place had we checked the ratings first. We had such a lovely meal. We sat outside under the patio heaters as it had... More

Finding quality food at an affordable price is not very easy in Leuven. This small town is stuffed with restaurants, and because half of the population are students, quality is often embarrassingly low. On the other hand, the list of top restaurants as mentioned by Tripadvisor is often plain silly - with a coffee shop and a burrito place in... More

We went here late in December: great interior (decorated for Christmas), and a good old timey feel. Service was a bit hit-and-miss (inexperienced), but the food was good (we had the chateaubriand) and reasonably priced. Recommended.

we have been here a few times and have had a mixed experience. Service is good and décor nice in general each time. I would suggest to only take dishes that are cooked 'a la minute'. Steaks, Fish, etc. Portions are BIG so you don't need a starter. The traditional dishes that are prepared in advance are not good and... More

We went several times to the Troubadour, and it's a really good restaurant. It has a nice atmosphere, but the prices are a bit high.

We had a dinner in Troubadour with 3 colleagues, one of whom did not like fish and the other two liked fish very much. We found Troubadour through Tripadvisor and were not disappointed. Despite the fact that we had an early dinner, the service was friendly and the meal was good, both the meat and the fish. As we were... More

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this lovely restaurant. As a group of 12 we were accommodated without a reservation and the service from all the staff was excellent. The food was delicious, especially the Fillet Mignon which had to have been the largest portion I have ever seen, my husband and I both struggled to eat it all. If I... More

There was a large group of us which they managed to accomodate without a reservation. Staff were very efficient and service was excellent. The food was lovely and they managed to serve all 12 of us at the same time with our main meals. The price was excellent too. Would definately recommend this to everyone.
