Excellent food!

Had dinner for two here. The reception was warm and welcoming, the service was professional (with a visit by the chef at our table). We took the 3-course menu with Tuna and Seafood Linguine as starters, accompanied with a Galician white wine that was perfect. My seafood Linguine was perfect, with... read more

Excellent discovery in Leuven. Really surprising new cuisine with exceptional quality: risotto with calamar /squids and excellent pigeon breastfeeding. Nice wines below 35 €, ie, primitivo, priorat, vouvraY.

Fine cuisine, friendly service, and a great ambiance. The lunch menu is both affordable and truly excellent. Well worth the detour from the more crowded spots popular with students and tourists. Highly recommended!

We had a very good lunch there today. The portions are medium size, but ideal portions for a lunch. We had lunch for 2. Starter was a salmon tartare with some fresh asparagus sprouts, a lemon flavored pesto and blueberries. Very original and tasty combination. The main dish was a pork roast with a nice gravy and mashed potatoes with... More

Our son is studying in Leuven and wants to remain in Leuven during the exam period. So the most efficient and least time-consuming way for keeping in touch on a regular basis is to have dinner say once weekly in Leuven. We have been testing several restaurants and have been disappointed nearly every time. So we are happy to have... More

Le Chameau is not your typical Leuven restaurant. It's a bit more expensive and the choice of food is limited to about 6 starters and 6 main courses. However, the quality of the food, the atmosphere in the restaurant, the open kitchen and the very nice service make this restaurant one of the better ones in Leuven. I can definitely... 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.
