“Amazing food in a very special enviroment”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

If you enjoy refined food, very good wine and excellent service, this is the place to bein Leuven! There is one important thing you need to know before you may enter this wonderful place : you absolutly need to make reservation for weeks in advance!!
The menu is limited but is regularly renewd . We choose the 4-course meal with matching wine. With every course that we got, the wine waiter (sommelier) came by and explained which wine he was going to serve and why... just amazing!!! We had a carpaccio of deer as an entree, a fish dish with mussels as intermediate course and a wild boar steak as main!! Very tastefull, I can assure you!! As dessert we had a special and delicious apple-dish .... with matching dessert wine of course. A top experience!!!! It's a bit pricy but you get quality food with superb service.

“Terroir kitchen, sublime presentation, smell & taste experience”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

Using mostly local products but presented in a very appetizing way, bringing together tastes and smells that leave you wondering and wanting to discover more, all this served with professional excellence, I just love it. And yes, the restaurant is dark and quite 'modern British' styled, but I happen to like that too, each time we come there we are positively surprised.

“Great experience after a long wait”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

Got a gift voucher for dinner @ Luzine, and had to wait almost a year to get a table for 4.

But the experience was worth waiting for. We had the Signature menu with the wine arrangement (@ Euro 145).

Everything was just perfect: service, the food, the wine, the atmosphere.. We arrived at 7PM and left at 1AM, and enjoyed every minute of it.

I am definitely going back.

“Pricy - but value for money”
Reviewed May 31, 2012

This is a restaurant to go to if you have something to celebrate (or just have too much money)
I do not like much fancy stuff and have a hard time trying out new dishes but this meal was superb!
There was only 1 thing I didn’t like the whole evening (and the other 5 people did, so it was pure personal taste).
The wines that come with the menu are very very good and just make it all worth while.
None of us (6) had anything bad to say about our evening at Luzine. We celebrated a relaxed Birthday and will do it again sometime in the future when we've saved up again.

--> You can give information if you have allergies or you can choose fish/meat/veg. (Which was good because I hate fish)
