Granted. I'm biased since I live near Leuven but this place is phenomenal. Friendly, knowledgeable staff with a relaxed vibe and the most innovative dishes ever encountered. I love how Convert Couvert keeps on surprising you with yet another unexpected plate.

Upper price range, only a short walk from my favourite restuarant and a direct competitor at this level of cuisine. We chose the 5 course menu with two of us taking the wine package and the cheese. A multitude of entrees that were a bit hit and miss, we all enjoyed the 1st and 2nd plate but we found the... More

My husband and I came by this wonderful restaurant by chance with our 16 month old daughter. It was a beautiful sunny day and we were looking for somewhere to have a bite to eat as we were driving through the area. We were lucky that they able to accommodate us for lunch as this turned out to be one... More

Couvert Couvert is one of two restaurants in Leuven which has one Michelin star. It is a bit outside of the city center so if you stay in a hotel there it is about a 10 minute taxi ride away. The overall set-up of Couvert Couvert is very nice. The restaurant is decorated in a modern way but the main... More

The food is excellent, as most restaurant guides indicate. The service is very good. the But I am afraid that not many people will linger long after dinner.

We had visted couvert couvert 2 years ago and we really enjoyed the food, the servise and the atmosphere. This time we felt the difference! Althought the place design was more taken care ogand beautiful, the overal value seemed lower than before. The prices are more expensive, the dishes seemed smaller and the waiters were not professional: they forgot the... More

Welcoming staff. Minimalist décor. The chef, trained as pastry chefs, brings precision in the preparation of their dishes which present a subtle balance of flavours, like this perfectly cooked Atlantic pollock associated with bergamot, ginger and a smoked-hay sauce.

We had a dellicious dinner with friends in this restaurant on the outskirts of Leuven.. The menu was very original with a variety of tastes and smells. From the appetizers to the cofffee, all was perfectly in balance and of high quality. Our favourite was the dish with chicory and the generous topping of black truffles. A real delight. The... More

We had come here invited by our friends. We all agreed that it wasn't just the palate of our tongue that was undergoing a marvelous experience. Our senses of smell were also taken from this world and brought to places we hadn't dreamed of going whilst having dinner. The staff were a pleasure as well. A very big thank you... More
