Het Land Aan de Overkant

Reviewed By michel l - Leuven, Belgium

upon arrival, we got a homemade lemonade on the Terrace, refreshing. Aperitifs were original: fresh apple juice (top), a local lager, a fresh gueuze, ... and all the classic ones.
We went for the 4 course. Some nice appetizers were followed by a fresh Holstein beef tartar. Than came a very fresh dish with a variety of radish. Main was a perfectly cooked cod with some cockles and buttermilk. Dessert was based on 'kriek'beer. We had a surprisingly fresh orange wine to go with its. Perfect service.

Zarza

Reviewed By Ludovic0_ - Leuven, Belgium

Had the lunch menu, which was OK: not the biggest portions, but enough. Very nicely presented. The tastes were decent enough, but I expected it to be a bit more special -- maybe also due to the way they present it, it didn't live up to my expectations.
The staff were quite friendly. The restaurant itself has a nice interior.

Zita Restaurant

Reviewed By Pascal Cools

Really excellent restaurant with an interesting Greek/Belgian menu. Top food, professional staff and very beautiful Terrace to lunch/dine outside.
They have a small parking lot on their own premises. When full, you can park at the other side of the (busy) road at the parking lot of the big stores.

Koffie Onan

Reviewed By Valérie M - Konstanz, Germany

I was overwhelmed by the huge selection in tea and coffee specialities they offer. Nevertheless with few smart questions, the staff easily helps you to make a choice. Together with my delicious green tea with mango I had a cinnamon bun which was really good. The cafe was full of people, so it is probably not a secret place to go, but definitely worth it!

Nepali House Restaurant

Reviewed By Aanett - BE

If I could, I would eat every week there. I just cant get enough of this restaurant. Its one of the best ones, that's for sure. And the service is really excellent. We have been several times there and we love to return to this restaurant. You will not regret trying it out. If you like Nepali/Indian food, you should not miss this one.

Faculty Club

Reviewed By CarolienBAC - Leuven, Belgium

The Faculty Club restaurant recently got rebranded: Cum Laude was born! Of course I was curious to try this new restaurant with the promising name, so when friends suggested this place for a Friday evening dinner, I quickly said yes.
I do have to be honest here, I was a little bit disappointed by the whole experience. Food was fine, but not exceptional (certainly not worth a Cum Laude). The suckling pig was baked too hard, which made the meat dry and not succulent as should be expected. A pity, because this was the main course. I did like the mussels in spicy sauce. All in all there was no single dish that really blew me away.
The wine was nice, but the presentation of the wines at our table was very minimal. Most of the waiters just mentioned the name and the grape. I had hoped for some more information about the wines.
The waiters were friendly, but I got the impression that service was somehow a little bit chaotic. Perhaps the new team and concept don't run smoothly yet. Something no doubt will improve in the future.

Gelateria Decadenza

Reviewed By giulietta429 - Brussels, Belgium

Really enjoyed my red fruit gelato - and a very generous serving too - good price/quality ratio. My husband had lemon cake - also delicious! Sometimes lemon ice cream can be quite artificial tasting. Not this one - just delicious. Very friendly owner. Several interesting flavours such as thyme. I would love to return here next time I am in Leuven.

Bistro Tribunal

Reviewed By Martine_Erik - Leuven, Belgium

It's an experience to make the choice of the meat yourself.
The cook helps you to choose. You will get informed about the difference in taste, structure, ...
We had a nice dinner, though due to popularity it takes a while before you find the right moment (and empty place in the reservation system) to get there.
Worth going !
