Subtle flavours

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 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

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

For a special occasion we wanted a good restaurant in the Leuven area. Inspired by the reviews on Tripadvisor, we were looking forward to a nice experience on Thursday night. There was nothing wrong with the food, presentations were cleverly done, no big surprises, no big let downs. but we were could not get inspired either by the service or... More

The food at couvert couvert has never been bad. I've been there about 4 times on (group) business lunches and the only negative thing I can say about our last visit that it was too much of the same. All courses had fish and it felt a little bit repetative. In all fairness it was the first time I experienced... More

Very nice restaurant, staff are young people and very friendly. The terrace looks nice. The food is very tasty and plates are beautifull to look at. Wine choices with the 5 course meal are excellent. We had dinner. Prices are normal for a 1 Michelin star restaurant. Very nice restaurant for a special occasion.

A very nice quiet setting for a special birthday with family. Service was exquisite and our seven-course lunch was presented by knowledgeable and attentive staff. Wine choices were excellent. Food was well prepared. We dined indoors but very nice outdoor facilities are available open to the skies on warm grey days, but covered by large overhead canopy on sunny days.

Very innovative and creative cuisine in a modern and clean interior. The terrace, only for aperitif, is very relaxing and in the middle of green. One of the best restaurants in the Leuven area.
