We went here last Friday night for dinner and it was lovely. We only had a main course each as we had been travelling all day and snacking.All three of us opted for the steak and it was fantastic, so tender and cooked to our liking. My husband and son had chips with theirs and they were good. My mashed... More

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 food with them using quality ingredients which you should not mind paying that bit extra...

We managed to get the last unreserved table at 6.15 on a Saturday. Book in advance or come early, this is a popular restaurant. All types come here young to old, casual to smart. We had fish,sea bass and whole trout. Both cooked perfectly, sauce with each very good. Service was smooth and speedy. The only small let down was... More

Beautiful setting and excellent service. We will be going back for a special occasion. The bread, olives, breadsticks and sausage given on the house were delicious and copious. We had the onion soup, which was nice, the jambonneau and the ox tongue which were excellent. The jambonneau in particular was delicious and huge! Only downsides were that it was extremely... More

Ate here with 20 or so colleagues. Had to pre order food, due to the party size. Service very slick, Duck nicely cooked pink, with lovely croquette potatoes. Staff helpful. Hose wine not great (may have been a colleagues selection, rather than a reflection) so had a couple of Leffe Blondes. These definitely taste better in leuven than the UK

We have been to this restaurant several times. Nice, family atmosphere, friendly staff and most important well prepared and beautifully served jumbo size Mussels. It is situated in the city center, easy to find for tourists. No parking facility. You have to park the car a few hundred meters away close to the small stream running through the city. All... More

Ambiance and decoration is really nice. All other waiters and staff where very smiley with some small chitchat that make the ambiance... More

after the museum visit we went to the Troubadour and choose the lunchmenu with the choice between fish and meat. I ordered the bass as main dish.Starter was Ok, but unfortunately the fish was already some time waiting to get served and was coldish. The tiramisu was very good.

Hi Went to eat with my father and my friend. We had to wait 10 min, but after we received a nice table by the waiter. We ordered chicken volauvent, mussels and my friend ordered a steak tartare, which arrived after 25 mins so we didn't had to wait long. As my friend was not capable to prepare the steak... More
