Minimalist food at its best in lively Leuven! Their wine selection is carefully chosen to gel with the food being served. In the business for more than a decade, this place is worth a is it if you are looking for fine-dine in the city. Vegan and gluten-free meals can be pre-ordered.

Zarza offers good service and high quality of all the dishes. All we had was really tasty and had an interesting touch. Nice presentation. Sure it's not cheap and could be a little bit cheaper but there's quite some successful work behind.

We had an excellent experience dining there as a family. The food was memorable. And the service very good. You should expect well-above average prices, but it worths it.

Zarza has above average (compared to other brasseries) cuisine - presentation and food taste, but the service is unfriendly, slow and incompetent. Will try again to see if service improves.

Reception was good. The couch was less comfortable as the chairs. Good and refined food. We chose the 5-courses menu accompanied with the right wines. The menu and wine were great, no remarks. Zarza is a good restaurant to go to for business but also for pleasure. The only remark I can give is to give the guests the possibility... More

When you are younger than 30, you can come during the week and take a cheaper so called young foodie menu, which is a 3 course menu with wine and water included. Don't hesitate, it will be a great experience! Superb food, an elegant atmosphere,..
