Excellent food

Quiet atmosphere, good food (classic preparation). A nice experience. Correct value / price ratio. We will go back for a special occasion.

visited the restaurant for lunch this time. Had the reasonably priced 3 course lunch. The 6 appetizers were a good start. We had the porc neck with foie gras and the fish carpaccio as a starter. The porc is one of the signature dishes of the house and that you can taste! Mains were turbot (a nice, tender and juicy... More

I could see the chef is seasoned, the waiting staff very polite and overall excellent service, but while some of the dishes -particularly the mains- were excellent and definitely top marks for the desert ones, however some of the starter dishes were trying to combine several tastes that for me were conflicting/mismatched and simpler would have been better. Still a... More

We visit here when we have a special birthday to celebrate, or a graduation, or on other special occasions. Just try to find a reason to come once a year. Even our son, who is mostly a junk food addict, is ever happy to try the degustation menu.

This restaurant is located somewhat 5 km from the centre of Leuven. It has a rather classic interior, but what you have to come for is the excellent food, the very personal service, and the great wines to accompany the food. It is always a more than satisfying experience.

Great meal at this Michelin one starred restaurant. We went with the five course degustation menu, paired with wine. We had a glass of champagne and were served a delightful Amuse Bouche. We started with a burrata and salmon appetizer, then came the best course of the night (though all were good), a grilled sole and lobster in crustacean broth--simply... More

Everything was very good and well seasoned, although very classic. The wine menu was included in the original, excellent and served generously. Dessert was also good but very simple. Overall, I think this is a very good restaurant for lovers of good food and classic quality..

Had a business event here where the whole place was reserved for our company. The food was great, the wine good (the special Belgian rose "champagne" for starters was very good) and due the the different smaller rooms the noise was well contained.
