We came here to celebrate a conference dinner. I don't think a lot of people have the opportunity to eat at a restaurant with 1 Michelin star located in a UNESCO heritage site. I don't even have to describe this place, just Google it and...More

Going for a luncheon with old schoolfriends, and I knew the Faculty Club as a hotel, but didn't expect to discover a gastronomic restaurant overhere.... Overall: very professional service, from welcoming,reception, to the waiting team. We had the 'business lunch' and I really felt pampered....More

Once again the quality of both dishes and service was excellent. It is always a pleasure being in these premises for lunch or dinner. Staff is very stylish and discrete. The setting is unique.

Dining at Cum Laude-Faculty club in Leuven is best explained by superlatives. Perfect service, great atmosphere and excellent, tasteful and beautifully executed food. The club is located at the Groot Begijnhof and about 25 minutes walking distance from the station.

Great food, great service and a very nice setting. The food was surprising, with small surprises in between the courses. I really recommend this restaurant.

Faculty Club - Cum Laude offers great luncheon options al fresco under a perfectly shaded terrace ... great menu options, set recommended lunch options (also vegetarian !), nice wine options too ... professional, be it rather stand-off-ish service ... very discrete, unless University related ;-)

The three course meal was great. The vegetable dishes and risotto were really really good. Chicken and the dessert were a bit more regular, but everything was cooked to perfection and tasted good. The area and the different rooms are very interesting and athmospheric.
