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.

What an amazing place! The atmosphere is quaint and very academic. The food was well presented and of a good quality. A hidden gem in Leuven.

Near the Groot Begijnhof, a place to see, is the Faculty Club. Parking enough, easy to get there. Inside you find a perfect classic designed restaurant, with several modalities for greater or smaller groups. Service is impeccable. The food always ‘the best’

I attended as part of a large group in the Great Hall. The mushroom risotto was a too salty for me. Dessert was excellent. Service was slow and mediocre in quality; on our table were not offered coffee.

Nice venue- historic building- modern sterile interior. Attended function at Cum Laude restaurant- lots of finger food. Delicious food although selection was not wide (many fried selections), almost all with meat and fish. Good service
