We dropped in while passing on a very busy Saturday night. Greeting was quick and polite. We were lucky to get a table at 5.30, many people after us missed out. We had lamb and fish. Both were good quantities and very tasty. We were amazed at the efficiency of the staff, especially the barman! The place had a good... More

While eating, we read the lunch/dinner menu and saw a couple of meals served. We decided we needed to try it. All we had was a lunchtime - but ordered dinner. Venison... More

I wanted some good mussels on our last night in Wellington and I was not disappointed! I refused to share my pot with anyone and left with a big grin on my face :)

On the way home after a Sunday afternoon enjoying the sunshine and a few beverages on the waterfront, we stopped at Leuven for more beverages. So when we seen mussels on the menu we couldn't resist and ordered two pots, one with tomato and chilli the other with white wine and garlic. They were fabulous and the service was brilliant...

Came here because a friend recommended it. Was fun to try some different foods. I had the lamb pie which was too much food for me to eat. The croquettes were nice and good service and ambience

The location and building is good and there is plenty of comfortable seats in the building. The staff are engaging and friendly and you can try all the options, the "waitress" for me was... More

I have been to Leuven quite a lot of times in the past when I still lived in Wellington. As we were back for a couple of days we decided to go here for lunch. One of our all time favorites is the Fries they serve, in the old fashioned triagle bag, like we are just from Holland/Belgium. The fries... More
