We had a diner on the terrace, nice place, professional service and the best thing was fooooood! Everything was delicious! We took the market menu (3 service for only €45) and were totally seduced by the presentation of the plates and the wonderful taste. Everything look and taste very fresh. Definitly a place tout try!

Leuven is a college town, so I wasn't sure what to expect, if you know what I mean. When I came in, the kitchen had already closed but I was seated anyway. 'Oh oh', I thought, 'leftovers again.' This place is very very good. I began with a duck starter. Very nice portion, not tough but very tender. It came... More

The place is called a brasserie, but it's more worth the name restaurant. Just the setting inside was really stylish. The food was very good: I ate the 3-course menu + house wines and water for 65 euros in total. Duck as a starter, lamb as main course and brownie & strawberry sorbet as dessert. Everything was of good quality... More

It was the forst time for me in this restaurant. We had a business dinner with 8 people. I had an autumn salad, with quinoa, pumpkin and feta cheese, and a turkey filet. Both very good. Together with a bottle of water it was about 40 euro. It is not a cheap restaurant, however the location is quite impressive, and... More

Stopped for starters with work colleagues. Sea bass and quinoa was delicious. Setting was beautiful and the restaurant was in a great setting in town.

Wines are available from eur19, we took a Spanish Ribero del Duero for eur28. Not bad but the second choice (eur36) was a reserva and... More

I came here on a business trip and really enjoyed the meal. The food was beautifully presented and cooked to perfection, especially the lamb dish I had which was served pink - it was tender and very flavoursome. The crepe suzette I had for dessert was also a highlight, nice and light but scrumptious too. The service was generally good... More

This restaurant has a beautiful setting at the center of Leuven. The food tastes also more than decent but a bit on the expensive side for the amount of food you actually receive. I ordered an entree and a salad as main course but sadly I left a bit hungry. Has a lot of potential though. Would revisit if menu... More

The restaurant within the complex of the old monastery. It is worth to look around it when you see the opportunity. Nice interior, much of the old preserved and restored. Good and fine food, great wine, good company and you have the perfect atmosphere.
