Been here numerous times while visiting, but recent visit was disappointing. Food for us was disappointing. While I had grilled mussels with cheese, they were very bland and lacked quality. A generally disappointing visit.

Just returned from having lunch at Leuven. First time here - we choose a different restaurant to eat at each month. We will ,most certainly come back.. Great food, with great service. Will be recommending it to friends.

Quick service, not many vegan options unfortunately. More vegetarian / vegan options would be nice. Food that was on offer was good. Coffee size very small but good coffee. Was ok but not amazing. I probably wouldn't rush back for breakfast.

Friendly service, and a pleasant shelter from a driving wet icy Wellington day. Caught up with friend over lunch. Relaxed atmosphere, plenty of private space, efficient service and good drinks and food. Beware, even the small plates are quite substantial. Apart from my excellent chicken...More
