Had dinner here recently while traveling for business. Food, Belgium beer and dessert was good. We had a large party and wait staff did an excellent job of taking care of us.

That was my first time in this restaurant It was nearly full but the food came without delay. Waiters are professional, charm and open minded. The mussels with vegetables and frites together with a couple of Leffe Brun were incredibles.

We have been coming to this restaurant for many years now (6) and still regard it as the best upmarket brasserie around the Leuven area. Decor is nice and classy (white table cloths, cosy wood finish and romantic lighting) service is excellent as is the...More
