Fish was too much cooked! A real desaster. One star Michelin? Maybe but not a brilliant one. Probably the Chef was not in the kitchen...

We really feel at home there, Iris is an... More

When visiting Leuven, do yourself a favour and pop over to Heverlee (Egenhoven) to savour what Arenberg's chef has been preparing. This being the hunting season, you have an extra reason to drop by. Great wine cellar too. Enjoy !

Very nice food, gentle service and fine wines but what I liked less is the very upmarket prices, long waiting times between dishes and very tiny portions. Entered at 12.30 and left at 17.00 after 5courses but still hungry

Everything was perfect from the beginning till the end. I really like the atmosphere there, it is gezellig. The true definitiion of gezellig. The selection of wines is fantastic and the food is great, then you understand why they have that star. I really appreciate and like the fact that they cook with local and seasonal ingredients, I love how... More
