despite name and outside appearance, totally casual brasserie with very informal, rather messy, marginally smelly interior (it rained and there was a wet dog :-( ) ... and matching 'casual' service and attitude. The menu is standard Belgian brasserie and the food that comes out...More

It has a perfect location! Near to the train station and yes : for a (fast) good meal, this is the place to go. The staff was very friendly, it was a beautiful decor and nice food for a good price.

I have been coming to this place for years but yesterday was my last time. Even though staff is very friendly, they offer poor service. I had to wait 15mins for a coffee, sat next to a dirty table that was not cleaned for 1hr...More

Brasserie La Royale is part of The Lodge, a chain that is gobbling up ever more hotels and brasseries in Leuven and elsewhere in Flanders. The interior, a combination of black and red wood furniture, is rather stylish. Outside there is a large al fresco...More

Cafe/Restaurant is located near railway station. Menu is rather limited and relatively pricey. Tried their signature hamburger. It turned out to be the worst hamburger I was ever served. The meat structure was similar to a German sausage and was rather spongy. In addition it...More

We had a very nice lunch here for a reasonable price. Fresh produce and generous portions. There is a good selection of vegetarian options, not the usual boring "vegetarian salad or vegetarian spaghetti" and one of the best burgers for the meat-lovers amongst us. If...More

I had a business meal, single person. I managed to get the last table (for four). Ordered red wine and a mixed grill. Did not get any bread, not sure if this was forgotten or not included. The red wine is not drinkable, typical cheap...More
