Just for a light lunch after 350km ride from France. Ordered Caesar's salad. Well presented: nice slices of chicken roasts on bed of salad, a couple of sad anchovy fishes, tough breadcrumbs, a minimalist presence of parmezan. Sadly it all swam in a watery vinaigrette. And dear, oh dear at the end the exciting discovery of one of Caesar's black... More

The Lodge is always a great place to eat with very friendly staff and delicious food. Allergies are no problem as the staff and chef will make sure to account for this. I've tried several dishes already in this restaurant, as has my wife, and we found them all to be delicious. 5 stars from me!

For the time I was working in the closeby Arenberg campus, this place has often been the location where we had some beers or small celebration with colleagues. Indeed, it also can be a nice place where to bring guests or visitors. There is much care in the dish presentations. As an example, even a simple black coffee comes with... More

Nice no nonesense restaurant close to Leuven and next to a beautifull castle! No wonder that students and professors are enjoying eating here.

I stayed at this hotel, and therefore I ate there as well. The asparagus were good, well cleaned, soft and nice to eat. The salmon was also okay. But the dessert. Oh. The dessert. I forgot what the official term on the menu was. But it contained chocolate in dough in a porcelain cup. And icecream. But the chocolate was... More

I stayed here 1 night in November, booked last minute because nothing was available in Brussels airport area. The pros: located in a leafy pleasant area, with own restaurant as well as another place across the read. The staff is very courteous and polite. The room was charming. Cons: my standard room had no shower, only bath tub. There was... More

Went there with 16 friends, we've made a reservation -and- specified beforehand what each of us wanted to have. The location itself is very common, looks more than an canteen than a restaurant. Even if some decorative items and lit candles are present. We were seated in the veranda, next to the entry door. It was quite cold outside and... More

There are 2 Lodges. We ate at the restaurant which is part of a very exclusive Hotel. the other one is just opposite and more a tavern. Very good food, excellent service. Very suitable for families with children. There is good space between the tables and a playground next to the outside terrace. I visited twice, both times with a... More
