Enjoyed the lunch, creative and copious. A lot of small extras dishes. Great service, and pleasant owner. The accompanying wine was Sicilian and I did not really care for it. I also found the 8 euros per glass expensive for the small serving. Very nice appetizer of smoked yet tender chicken. The main course was non nondescript wild fish which... More

A modern décor, beautiful, delicate food, 5 courses plus innumerable little bites and well presented. We were well looked after. I wasn't always completely convinced with the wine combinations but that might be personal taste. Definitely a great way to... More

This is still one of my favorite restaurants in Leuven! Excellent menus that not only taste but also look fantastic with nice wines, certainly to recommend for special occasions, a bit pricy though...

Good but pricy. Tables are very well arranged and there is enough space between them. Service is a bit inconsistent. I didn't get any help to seat while the table next door did.

Twice I have been invited by friends to this highly rated restaurant. Both times I was disappointed with the food. The service is fine.

This restaurant has a very nice setting, which makes it great for special occasions or a sophisticated romantic evening. The menus are well balanced and they have an excellent wine list. The desserts are divine....
