“Nice place, great terrace, average food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

This restaurant has a nice setting and a great terrace.
Our lunch here was not that great, though. Very average.
The homemade hamburger was very dry. it had half an onion on top, badly cut (I mean literally an onion chopped in half). The croque was small, not enough for a good meal.
The salade niçoise had lots of celery and nuts in it (which are very untypical for a niçoise) which wasn't mentioned on the menu. Many people suffer from nut/celery or other allergies. When you use these ingredients in a meal in which it's uncommon you should surely mention this on the menu.
Overall too pricy for such an average lunch.

“Vers nice hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013 via mobile

The Lodge Hotel combines the rustic charm of an old farm house with the modern comfort. For 20 euros more you can have a suite and a bottle of wine, breakfast is included and it is nicely served on a veranda. You can have underground parking for a small fee but wifi is free of charge. You will need to book the restaurant in advance as it could be full otherwise. The only small minus is the noise that the wooden floors make when walking, we could hear it in the morning coming from the next door, but it was't very disturbing. All in all great experience.

“A meal a restaurant unworthy”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012 via mobile

A chef serving a steak tartare like the one I had today, should be fired on the spot. I never had such terrible, ground and tasteless meat with all the ingredients on the side. Mixing a good steak tartare is a skill a chef worthy of his name should have. Buying high quality ingredients too.

“Nice, cosy and good food at a decent price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2012

If you are close to the Arenberg castle in Leuven (Heverlee), it is probably one of the nicest ambients with good food. Prices are normal.
