We went with friends from Belgium, knowing is they favorite place. (Which, in my experience, can be a great place or a huge deception). We spent a wonderful lunch-time, such a friendly-professional staff, each degustation was a memorable experience (eggplant tasting like meet, lamb -cooked 24hs- like butter) We had a menus with wine, which, however good, was not quite...

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... More

Excellent food. Be sure to try one of set menus with wines adapted to the menu. Not cheap but but well worth it. Maybe a tiny bit monotonous (some ingredients kept coming back). However, the wines made me forget all about this. Definitely one of the few places I had dinner lately which had such good food-wine pairings. Surprising and... More

Had dinner here with my wife & two other couples. None of us were particularly impressed. Taste is of course subjective, and others may like it better, but all of us found the food quite tasteless. Some interesting choices and combinations, but the end result was quite bland, from starter to dessert. E.g. as a main course, we were served... More

This visit was with a group of 5 for a business lunch which was really great. The food , a fixed lunch menu, was served in decent portions in an original way. The champagne was a special bio blend which tasted very good and the special aperitif if the house was a dry albrusco which I liked a lot.

Went there on recommendation by friends. Turned out to be a good discovery! We took the set menu which did not disappoint at any moment. Every dish was prepared with delicacy and great attention to detail. You can opt for the suggested wines, or order your own choice of wines by the glass. The place is spic and span with... More

I have only been at Land aan de Overkant once but I would really recommend it. Friendly staffing, spacious and modern setting, and of course delicious food. Surprising but successful combinations with quite exclusive ingredients, loved it.

This was our first visit and we were not disappointed. The composition of the menus was refreshing and often surprising. Same for the wine choice. The atmosphere is warm and the service excellent. Prices are at the high end but you get value for money. Recommended

We have visited the restaurant several times and always came back very pleased. The staff is perfectly friendly, nice service, excellent food and very open to accommodate specific dietary requirements with a smile. Within the Leuven area definately one of the best places to go if you are looking for an upscale (and thus a bit more expensive) lunch or... More
