Located in a nicely restored square farmhouse, De Oude Kantien offers good modern brasserie food. Very generous portions. Nice reasonably priced wine. Maybe a bit too big a place with function rooms, etc and maybe a bit too organised and clean, but that's what you get with a good hotel restaurant organisation applying its learnings and experience. Still a nice place with good food, but no real brasserie or warm atmosphere.

A very nice restaurant serving quality food and tasty dishes. Very professional and friendly personnel, typical brasserie/restaurant with a nice menu-card and fine wines. The restaurant invites for a romantic dinner or business lunch.
Very nice setting and easy to park your car nearby.

We went last week to the Oude Kantien to celebrate the Bday of my parents and as always, the food was very good! I ordered the typical Belgian dish Mussels and Belgian fries, try the one of the house which come with shrimps as well and is just delicious! Service was very good, the guys very polite although you could see they were short on staff that day. On a Sunday the place is always fully booked, so reserve in advance if you wanna have a table!

When we lived in Heverlee for a year in 2009 (Review dates suggested don't include year 2009) we ate at the Oude Kantien several times and always enjoyed it. And took visitors there several times too. The food was very good Belgian style food with fresh modern additions. It was very flavoursome and and presented well.
Of great bonus for us was the attached playground for our 3 1/2 year old. Also, the 'castle' near by for lovely walks.

Not the widest choice available and a bit expensive for what was on offer. However, service was good as was the setting and atmosphere. We were staying in the attached hotel, so it was a convenient choice rather than being a culinary one.
