"If you can", moneywise I mean. It is expensive indeed, buth worth it (for us: only on special occasions). I agree that portions are rather small, but what do you expect for a 6 ore 8 course dinner (plus 6 appetizers and lots of (delicious) mignardises with the cofee?. Very innovative cuisine at very top level. If you fancy cheese... More

Belgium is very densely populated by good restaurant and I visit regularly, but it had been a long time that Belgian cuisine did not surprise me so much. Creativity and innovation are always balanced and the results are invariably elegant and at the same time surprising. I can say that out of the tasting menu (yes, try that!) of 6... More

I discovered Couvert Couvert somewhat 14 years ago. In those times the restaurant didn't have a Michelin star and was for me the best restaurant ever around Leuven area...immaculate combination of taste and flavors, wonderful dishes, refined food and always something new. Overall I visited the restaurant 5 to 6 times before the Michelin Star. This year I went back,... More

It is a good restaurant and might be on its way to perfection. The setting is nice in the back of a house of a non-insipiring flemish street. It has a terrace which unfortunately we could not use due to even more un-inspiring weather. Inside the linen-clothed tables with swedish style chairs are seated widely apart, so you feel private...

I had the pleasure to come here recently after being external examiner of a PhD thesis at a local university (one of the best in Belgium; the candidate passed too) as part of a group of 8. WHAT AN EVENING!!! The restaurant is exceptional, full choices of indoor or outdoor dining, a warm professional welcome, clear views into the kitchen... More

This is a marvelous restaurant. It has one Michelin star which means it's still affordable, but the quality of food and wine beats almost everything I've had in Belgium (including a series of two star and one three star restauirant). There is no doubt in my mind that for a high level culinary experience, there is no better value-for-money in... More

This is defenitly a restaurant Leuven can be proud off. This was my 5th visit here. I was there with friends, for a romantic tête à tête, and for a party. All my experiences were identical. Warm and friendly people. Excllent food and wine. Congrats tot the whole team.

Every dish was very special, most of them a discovery of tastes. They were all beautifully set up, and the service was great and fast. Lots of side dishes, amuse-bouches and mignardises, all delicious!

Went to CC once more in July, it was a while ago. Whole evening tastings of top level. We took the evening menu with all courses, including their marvellous cheese platter (choice to be taken from it). Nice wines to accompany the menu (though not out of the ordinary, however all good wines, no cheap rubbish which you may get... More

We've eaten at the Couvert Couvert more than a dozen times. But the last of those dated from 15 months ago. Because we then left with mixed feelings, we weren't too eager to try it again. But due to a lot of holiday closures amongst our collection of favorites, we decided to give it one more try. First thing that... More
