Restaurant Arenberg in Heverlee, 15 years of excellence

This top restaurant owned by Iris and Lieven Demeestere is one of the best quality restaurants of the Leuven region with one Michelin star. We like to go there and they have attractive lunch selections. Cooking is a passion, they use top quality ingredients and the wine selection is special. We selected the gourmet menu for that specific day. You will not regret visiting Restaurant Arenberg.

  3. This all looks yummy and am so glad that you listed what everything is, as some of the foods might be different from texas. ( Actually, they all look much different, and not in a way the is a good reflection on Texas) Lovely presentation; on all of these items. Very nice photo of you and kristel. All the best, Jeanne

  7. Filip, surely this was an extra special celebration of something - perhaps a birthday or anniversary? I like seeing the two of you looking so relaxed and happy. I have never seen bass served this way. The carpaccio of sea bass is presented like a flower. I don't think I could eat this much food in a week! Your photos do it justice, though - yummy!

  14. What a spread you find the best places to eat. How do you keep so slim? Ballroom dancing I suppose.
