Leuven has a hundrets of restaurants, so it is not easy to be sure if this one is that you are looking for. However I would like to recomend the place. It is a quite small restaurant with a several places. Only two guys serve, but they are good, fast and correct. I have got for starter Krab & avocado... More

The restaurant has a very good reputation but personally I didn't like it. The food is too expensive (count 60 EUR per person for the menu with beverages) for the quality they offer. The food they offer is just a mixed of different tastes that often don't fit together. The restaurant is made to impress with design but food is... More

Another great option if you want a fine dining experience for a good value price! They offer several starters, entrees and desserts which you can put into a 3 course menu. For some of the courses, you'll pay extra (eg if they use foie gras, etc). There's no terrace, which is a downside, and the plastic chairs are a little... More

Excellent food, good service, nice atmospere. We had try a few times before we got in, but it was definitely worth the wait. One the few places in Leuven that serves excellent food at affordable prices.

Small restaurant. Nicely decorated and cool transparent chairs. The kitchen is an open kitchen in the already small dining room. It causes some noise, but, more annoying, a smell. And when I am eating my dessert, I don't want the distinct smell of shallots from someone else's onglet that's being prepared. They offer a three course meal at €35, which... More

With only ten tables to serve, the whole restaurant is ran by two persons. You can see the cook (1) doing his magic as you sit at your table and you are always served with great kindness by the same waiter. It is really one of my favorite restaurants in Leuven, with a fixed lunch at a bargain and a... More

No, we did not have to wait long for our - delicious - food. Wait refers to the fact that on and off I had been calling Le Chameau for more than a year to book a table, just to hear: sorry we are fully booked that night (ok, I am notoriously late making reservations, but…). Well we got in... More

In the center of Leuven, near St. Peter's Church you can find a small (max. 10 small tables) and cozy restaurant with a fantastic menu. The only disadvantage is that they don't have a terrace, so don't go there when the sun is shining ;-)

This small restaurant is very popular with the locals. You need to make a reservation at least three weeks in advance in order to get in. The menu offers a mix of French, Belgian and Italian cuisine. Nothing fancy, but well-prepared basic dishes offered in generous portions. The menu card is changed every month, which makes it interesting to return... More
