Recently had lunch here and I much regret it. The (male) owner of the restaurant was rude, disrespectful and extremely unprofessional. I am not planning on visiting this place ever again and will spread the word.

This is a busy place, frequented by many university students. Diverse menu with budget dishes. Cash only.

De werf never disappoints! Original way of serving their food and drinks. Cosy and always changing decor. My favourites are the hot chocolates and pastas but actually you have to try everything.

The food was cold even if it was a warm dish. The vegetables were bad cooked and the bread was not good. Even a simple wrap was bad. Not to return for a meal. Maybe for the happy hour, but never for a meal!

I had the chicken curry wrap and the home made mint ice tea. Very nice and a very reasonable price. The service was very friendly.

This place should be closed down. The have very low standards and over the years have lowered their customers' standard as well.

Their opening hours already suggest it: it's a typical student place in Leuven, not a tourist place as are many places in Leuven. Food is good there and compared to other places relatively cheap. Also the drinks are good there. Especially in the summer months...More
