Well earned reputation

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.

1 star restaurant and that is a very nice experience. You feel a guest in every way. A special guest I might say. From the parking space to the bathroom. We loved the food and wines. They were generously refilling glasses. Definately worth the money! 150 euro for the "all the way-dinner" with wines and waters, apero and coffee. Money... More

Return visit for business lunch, consistent high performance, friendly staff, superior service. As starter slightly warm dish with lobster, kingcrab, crayfish bisque sause, espuma wonderful, perfectly cooked. For main seabass with season vegetables, cooked to perfection. Finished with panna-cotta, koffee and premium selection of sweets. For wine, classic French Meursault. Good price – quality rating

5th visit now over the years. We had a perfect 5-course lunch at a reasonable price. Attractive winelist with some very nice non-French wines. Try for instance the american red wines or, my favoutite, the red wine from Mallorca! We were very pleased with the award winning course which had all flemish ingredients such as the confit porc shoulder. We'll... More
