Came here for lunch as it looked like they might have healthy-ish and vegetable-based food. From a distance food also appeared well-presented. Staff came across somewhat complacent and the whole place seemed a bit neglected when one had a closer look. We had quiche with...salad. The salad was looking tired and old and definitely not fresh, which isn't a good sign for a place called 'Lettuce'. The quiche was ok and a generous size. Overall, I was underwhelmed.More

Good lunch at Lettuce but very disappointed when had to pay more than the prices written on the menu because "the prices increased". And??? It wasn't written anywhere neither someone of the staff told us anything before we ordered to eat on site. Plus, the...salads are served with bread and butter, but if we hadn't asked for it, who knows when it would had arrived... Ok, we don't read Dutch but customers are not pigeons. In the end, for this price, also the portions should increase!More

We were happy to see Lettuce had survived the Corona lockdown because not all businesses have been able to weather the crisis. As the outdoor seating area was packed we had lunch inside where social distancing was no problem. Unfortunately it turned out the menu...had changed two weeks earlier (although the old one is still on their website). Two of our favourite spicy dishes, the vegetarian chili and the ‘salad of the lambs’ (couscous and lamb meatballs) weren’t available anymore. So, we opted for a vegetarian lasagne and a vegetarian quiche, which we found very bland. Maybe they changed the cook also? We will try something else next time!More

I had the Pescuviir and my wife had the Power potato. both excellent...dishes. pity due to the CV-19 they weren't that busy( neither were anywhere else!) but they were spotless in hygiene and very cheerful Thanks RobinMore

If you are a fan of light healthy salads, delicious bread and extremely nice people then this is the must-visit kind of place. Been there several times, recommended it to our team at work and we are all very satisfied with the choice and variety...of salads to chose from. Very reasonable prices as well. This place is definitely a place to come back to. Thanks guys!More

The quiche was really good, with a great salad! The lemonade was also really good. The prices are cheap compared to other restaurants.

Looking for a place to have a light lunch after a conference at the Law Faculty in Leuven I was happy to find Lettuce in a small corner house nearby. In the summer there is outside seating. Lettuce is a fresh and pleasant place with...lots of green plants everywhere. There even is a wall covered in fake grass. The restaurant is divided over several levels. The upstairs floor (where the loos are) is accessible only via a steep flight of open steps, which is bad news for people with mobility issues. Sitting in the back on the ground floor, with a clear view on the staircase, I had some difficulty waving down the wait staff but seeing them climb and descend the stairs relentlessly to take and deliver orders or clear tables kept me busy. Maybe a system of ordering at the counter before choosing a table would be more efficient? Lettuce seems to attract a predominantly female clientele. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. The menu offers salads, quiches, soups, sandwiches, a few mains and deserts. It’s not strictly vegetarian, but there is a good choice of vegetarian options. I had the soup of the day and an ‘Eggs eggs sandwich’. The soup was cauliflower and carrots, an unusual but tasty combination. The open sandwich with egg salad was served with a little salad. The eggs were yummy but I found the bread too mushy. Prices are normal for Leuven.More

Ever had the feeling that you really wanted to eat a salad but you don't know where to go? GO HERE! Their salads are very creative, it will be difficult to choose! But there's more! They also have quiche, soup, sandwiches,... and the staff is...also very friendly. I would definitely recommend this place!More

Great place for salad lovers! The salads here are truly excellent: fresh ingredients served in big bowls, drizzled with an lovely dressing and served with very savory bread. You can order take away or eat in. I really liked sitting on the second floor and...take lots of time to enjoy my meal. I guess I ordered too much, because the combination of a big bowl of soup and a salmon salad was too much for me. In really enjoyed the combination of salmon with spinach, quinoa, beetroot and fennel a lot. Original and very savory. I'm also looking forward to trying their quiches.More

Knew about that place as vegetarian and wanted to check it out , first what u notice inside is very dirty floor with wet papers on it, and dirty tables, anyway u hope to get tasty food, at 16:30 3 things in a raw we...wanted to order they didn’t have, no hot meals, only one soup. Plates they bring are dirty as well as spoons and forks, then you can see fingerprints on dark plates, which is gross. Waiters sit next to your tables and chill, I find that not professional. Food wasn’t really tasty, even deserts we didn’t finish. There was a table with free water bottle and glasses, good I smelled it before drinking, smelled simply as water in swimming pool. Not recommending that place, around 40 euro bill for two people, can go to much better place for that budget.More

Very tasty salads and quiche. Ordered via deliveroo. Big portions. I ordered the twist on the "Luikse salade". Not the classic salad, which I m a big fan of, but still very tasty.

If you're looking for a healthy place to have lunch, you should definitely try out Lettuce in the Tiensestraat. The staff is very friendly, keen on explaning the concept and always offer you a free glass of water while you wait for your order. You...can order take-away or enjoy your salad right there. When weather permits you can sit outside on the terrace in the lively Tiensestraat. The salads are really excellent, freshly made with a nice dressing and often some surprising combinations. Never had to wait long for my order to arrive!More

Surprising little restaurant in Leuven for a healthy lunch. The interior is really pleasant, fresh, trendy and the many plants are a good idea. A short menu with salads and 'boterhammen' with fresh ingredients and interesting combinations. The accompanying bread and butter are very good...and it's a nice idea to provide water for free. Very friendly staff. Reasonable prices. I regretted that there was no real vegetarian salad on the menu, but I read on their website afterwards that you could have the meat replaced by another ingredient at a reduced price. I'll sure try that next time!More
