Very yumy food, very good and fast staff, it is very often full but we always manage to find a place winter and summer alike. It is a great place to go with friends and enjoy the good food! Specialy the tiramisu!!

Comparably easier on the wallet and good sized portions for both their wraps and their pastas. Very busy but decent in getting food to your table. Would eat here again!

Cosy interior and big terrace, excellent value for money (you can easily have lunch here for less than 10 EUR), amazing desserts and good service. A must-go when in Leuven!

Been coming here for ages, was surprised to be asked to pay for our meal after we had ordered. It was the same scenario when we ordered coffees and puds? Hope this was a one off? The local family next to us didn't pay until they requested their bill after their meal. Food is fine, service is fast and good... More

Located in a pleasant garden square. Unusual menu. Friendly service. Be warned cash only and you pay immediately you receive your food. Near the Centre but away from the other restaurants so it has its own charm. I would go there again and again!

Came here a few times during my week in Leuven. It's in a lovely location, with plenty of outdoor seating so that you can soak up the sun. The staff are surprisingly quick, and the food is delicious. I tried a wrap and a salad and both were great. Nice and fresh and slightly more interesting than the usual lunch... More

had a good spaghetti, the girlfriend has a deliciously looking wrap. Better than some of the Italians in the muntstraat for less than half the price.

What a find! I live close by but had never been and I am glad that I did. I took my parents and we had such a nice time sat outside on the square. I would say it is more of a lunch or light dinner restaurant and it serves pasta, salads, big wraps and these stews that come in... More

Great spot for dining outdoors in sunny Leuven. Healthy salads, friendly staff. It's off the beaten path, frequented by locals.

Casual atmosphere, very good outdoor seating, good beer selection, good menu seleciton and good value for your money. Always filled with locals, that says something, right? Recommended.
