Romantic place, great food, you experience different taste in one small dish. The food was like heaven, great wines since we tried more than one type. Perfect service. One of my favorite places in Leuven. Pleasant to be back there.

My first visits to this restaurant go way back, when chef Michel was not assisted by his sons yet. The restaurant is well organized, and they deliver interesting and delicious season related dishes. Whether the theme is game, lobster, asparagus, etc. Father and son always prepare very tasteful and superbly presented dishes. For each of the menus you can optionally... More

It was a long time since we had dinner here. Happily surprised about the place: quality of food, setting, professionalism, quality of service, it was all there. Clearly an ambitious restaurant. Two minor comments: the place gets crammed very easily (so fewer seats would improve the quality of experience), and the sommelier should still learn his trade a bit better...

This is a fine dining restaurant. From the moment we entered the service was smooth and slick. The I-pads for the menu worked well, but the staff also explained the choices very well in multiple languages.We had the surprise menu and the sea menu. Both well thought out a perfectly executed. The wine pairing with the sea menu was sublime,... More

First time here, I must say I'm impressed. Very modern kitchen, French-based but with a lot of a-typical ingredients. Everything very fresh, small paintings on a plate, nice service.... come here if you want to impress someone or want to have a culinary lunch/dinner. I certainly will be visiting Spaans Dak again!

After my doctoral defence, had a very nice dinner here. Special dishes, great service, the only downside was the price!
