my husband surprised me on our anniversary dinner and I was extremely surprised on how great the service was and the food looked and tasted amazing. I didn't expect that there was a classy restaurant like this in Leuven. I loved how the waiters explained everything they served and made an effort to speak English to me and Nederlands to... More

It's ok to dine there, sometimes a dish is great, some others are not more than average But for that amount of money there are 5 better places in the neighbourhood to spend your dollars on

We have been here a few times before, but each time it is just fantastic. Although you might expect from a one star Michelin restaurant that everything is very formal, you will feel at home immediately. Owners and staff are very friendly, they make you feel comfortable, and they all are very knowledgeable. We always take the (extended) menu, because... More

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

Sober decoration, max around twenty people, food was superb, service more then ok, dutch speaking with slight accent but we are close to the language border, I really enjoyed my evening. What makes them better then the other star restaurants in the neighbourhood is their excellent choice... More
