nice atmosphere, with different corners and enough privacy. very nice service, with an eye for detail and the guests. professional but not cold. the appetizers were very divers and set high expectations. these were certainly, only one dish was less to my liking. desert and coffee concluded a lovely meal on the same high level.

Couvert Couvert is a gem. The drive, plane or train ride is well worth it. The food is delicate, balanced and well presented. The space is elegant and minimal. A lovely atmosphere in an unexpected venue with charming hosts.

Actually I went there very often with a high level of satisfaction. I have never been disappointed even if I am really hard to please regarding the food and the wine! The atmosphere is absolutely not stilted but professional. I love it! Booking is highly recommended.

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

€80 for the 5 course taster menu, €110 with the wine. That's good value for this level of fine dining. 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.
