Evening meal with a group of five Non-Belgians. We turned up en masse and a table was swiftly arranged for us. Outdoor seating area was pleasant and well sheltered by trees/hedges but still with enough sun. When the weather turned another table was quickly sorted indoors. The lovely waitress recommended Belgian specialities from the menu for both food and beer.... More

Pretty bad price/quality: meat was very though, sauce was almost liquid, waiters forgot our order and the rain was seeping in. Only reason I come here: nice terrace and in the vicinity of the univeristy. Ok for drinks, but will not eat here again.

It is more a tavern as a restaurant but THE food is also very good There. It was Nice because we wantend to sit outside as it was a warm summer afternoon. Over THE weekend it is very crowdy and you might not Find a place and do not know if you have THE possibility to make reservations.

OK to have a coffee when strawling in the Arenbergh park, or for an occasional quick "steak and fries" lunch. No particular pros or cons.

My companion asked the permanent waiter to not garnish my plate as I am not supposed to eat uncooked food during pregnancy in order to protect the baby against possible infections. The permanent waiter responded very coldly to this and demanded what I did not want with my pasta dish. So I explained to him that I did not want... More

This restaurant has a nice setting and a great terrace. Our lunch here was not that great, though. Very average. The homemade hamburger was very dry. it had half an onion on top, badly cut (I mean literally an onion chopped in half). The croque was small, not enough for a good meal. The salade niçoise had lots of celery... More

The Lodge Hotel combines the rustic charm of an old farm house with the modern comfort. For 20 euros more you can have a suite and a bottle of wine, breakfast is included and it is nicely served on a veranda. You can have underground parking for a small fee but wifi is free of charge. You will need to... More

A chef serving a steak tartare like the one I had today, should be fired on the spot. I never had such terrible, ground and tasteless meat with all the ingredients on the side. Mixing a good steak tartare is a skill a chef worthy of his name should have. Buying high quality ingredients too.

If you are close to the Arenberg castle in Leuven (Heverlee), it is probably one of the nicest ambients with good food. Prices are normal.
