Excellent food and a great choice in a central place in Leuven, next to the famous old market. The very friendly multicultural staff served our drinks and delicious Morocon dishes with couscous.

We had a really nice lunch at Kalypta. Loved the tapas plate with something on it for everyone to like. Very big portion as well, we couldn't finish it !
