Cool address in Leuven, food was great, service was perfect and the location is very cozy (with good acoustics) - we visited in january 2019 when some friends recommended it to us and we're really glad we came here. We took the 4-course menu and were satisfied in the end.

Prices are reasonable for the quality they offer. Already recommended it to family & friends. We'll be back.

Bistro Lust is a pretty, small reastaurant near Leuven town hall and church.

The four course meal we had was quite nice. The seasonal side dishes were my favourite. The white fish we had was well cooked but quite ordinary.

Service was very friendly and entertaining. The pop music was a bit loud and they did not want to to turn it all the way down from the whole place.

Interesting, modern cuisine rooted in tradition at this 'bistro' . The chefs come to the table to explain the dihes themselves, a style of service that I always appreciate.

I especially liked two dishes from their medium sized tasting menu. First, their take on the Flemish hotch potch, a more refined, cleaner version of the classical stew with pork and several vegetables, which still retained heartiness and substance. And their take on the classical dessert Opera. The flavours you expect were there, plus some more, the cake asembled in a very different, more elaborate and less linear way that the original.

The young and energetic sommelier pushed the 'natural' wine line and gave exhaustive explanations about what he was serving. Whatever question he couldn't answer on the spot, he went and checked. The matching wines he proposed were all very drinkable, nothing fancy or structured but good quality all round.

In sum, a very pleasant dinner for our group, at a price that seemed fair to me in view of the quality of both cuisine and produce. You also get generous, and substantial, amuse bouches so that, although the portions of the various courses are, as you expect in this type of place, not very large, you definitely feel fully satisfied by the end of the meal.

More than a bistro, top quality food in a very nice atmosphere. Would recommend it to everyone for a nice lunch or a better dinner. Enjoy!
