Just landed in Leuven and found that all restaurants shut by 10pm mostly, but these fine gentlemen agreed to prepare a quick spaghetti for me. Great music playing inside, chill people, the men behind the counter are super friendly!

First of all, I like the interior of Carlisse, especially the mezzanine, where you can sit quietly together with your friends. You can eat some dishes over there, and the salsa - served with the nachos - is superb! They also have a wide variety...More

Great home made ice tea and nacho's. The rest of the food is average to good. At busy moments you have to wait quit long for your food to be served.

I'm glad i stopped by this bar; a daily updated chalk board with only their specialties, tandoori salad, authentic Caesar salad and others for a decent price. Happy funny times with appropriate hosts! make sure to drop on an afternoon.
