“magnificent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2012

I have a feeling that the Belgians eclipse the French in their cuisine, and do so without anyone noticing. Apart from the courses disclosed on the menu, be prepared for an imaginative amuse bouche and petit fours with coffee. Uncompromising and traditional excellence in food, ambience and service define this unusual university/open to the public Michelin recognized establishment. The setting is both extremely historic and spectacular, and the service traditional and exceptional. To confuse very high standards with snobbishness is to miss the point: in this restaurant, you get the best or very close to it. If you are uncomfortable with this concept, then please don your shell suit and head for KFC or McD of which there are several perfectly serviceable examples in Leuven. But if you are willing to take it at face value, enjoy the superb fruits on offer...and please, please don't complain that the standards are too high...!

“Good but a bit for snobs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2012

The Club has good (but not excellent food) and looks a bit like for snobs outside and inside. People are friendly, prices are above average but effordable. Meals are normal size. For business dinner I would recommend the restaurant, for private reasons (couple dinner) I would avoid it. All in all what you pay and what you get is allright.
