I hadn't read the reviews here before reserving at this restaurant. It was recommended and I just went with it. So I had no idea what I was in for. At first, the service seemed friendly. The restaurant was almost full (few empty tables). I...More

Restaurant a little quiet but we had a really enjoyable meal. This is not a quick eat venue so don't expect to be in and out in 30mins - savour the experience. Our waiter was polite and helpful in translating the menu. He wasn't overbearing...More

We ate some good food here. The fish and meat was cooked well. Poor variation in sides (vegetables) though and a very long waiting time! We had 4 course meal: started at 6.30 pm, leaving the place at 11 pm (straight after dessert)! Service was...More

We went there for our birthday dinner. We chose for a menu with 3 courses. On a big plus point: there is no problem with vegetarian dishes - the cook prepares something on the spot with the ingredients they use for other dishes. The veggie...More

We had a delightful anniversary dinner at this restaurant. The service was attentive and friendly, and we seated near the terrace, but protected from the rain, so it was the best of both worlds - the active but still quiet Mechelsestraat and the contemporary decor...More

I went there twice in the last weeks. The food is OK, but just that. That would by itself not make it a poor rating, but the restaurant feels pretentious. The combination of the two (just OK food, but rather pretentious) makes for a poor...More

Wanted to thank the chef for an excellent evening with a friend. Each course in fact deserved the highest rating, so highly recommend this place. If only they could fix their ventilation system it would perhaps be one of the best in Leuven
