A small, unique little restaurant in the central part of the university town of Louvain-la-Neuve. As we were visiting nearby in Rixensart, and it was Sunday evening, we decided to try our luck without Reservations. We were the first customers (around 7:00PM) and found that if you don't have Reservations, go early, because they fill their tables quickly. The food was, as expected, superb! After enjoying our appetizers, we chose their 2 fish dishes, one each, and were very pleased. A word of caution: if you are not local, and visiting Belgium, check out the rules for credit card acceptance. They only accept a card that has a "chip" found at the local bank. I think it is called a "proton card". Otherwise have some euros on hand.

On recommendation of a friend we had dinner there. Me, as big pizza fan, choose for a pizza and my husband for pasta. The table next to us was served just after we ordered, and as the restaurant is medium size, the tables are very close to each other. I therefore could see the plates served. Looked OK, but when they moved the plates a little we noticed a very liquid water/tomato sauce. Our order arrived and my pizza bottom was perfectly round, with no deformation. All Lissa served had exactly the same shape. Taste was mediocre. My husband's pasta had the same liquid water/tomato sauce. He directly commented on this to me that this was not fresh but frozen food. We did not even finished half of our plates. We commented this to the waiter, who did not even denied our comments. It seems that if you are in a University city you can only eat "junk" food for a total of 59 euro!!!
To avoid this restaurant if you want to have a good, fresh, home cooked pizza or pasta.

I've been living in the region for nearly 10 years and always I wanted to go visit this place. It looks uninviting and a bit run down but still, my secret hope was that the inside would make up for the uninspired outside.
Well I was wrong.
The cooking is exactly like the interior which is a perfect reflection of the exterior: not worth the money. The food wasn't exactly bad. The service was actually friendly (if a bit gruff). But I can do a more dedicated and delicate job at home, and it will cost much less.
Conclusion: I do not intend to go back.

This is among the restaurants we frequent when home cooking is out of the option so we are very familiar with it as we've been regular clients since more than 10 years. The traditional yet cosy interiors add to the ambiance but lately, the use of what seemed to be "home-made paintings" on the walls and Ikea glasses start to diminish the classiness of the resto. Food is still very good and surely on Thursdays, one can get a real good deal. For EUR55 they have an all-in offer: drinks from aperitif to coffee/tea plus the 3-course-meal. The mise-en-bouche of Chef Carmelo is always cream-based, not typical for Italian chefs to be inclined to "crème fraiche" but it is always a good breaker. But altogether, he always comes up with a good fusion of western ingredients. Marie, his wife, is often in-charge of the dessert and she's quite good at it too. The only setback is that often the lady at the service (you have to go to the restaurant yourself to know who) has stinking underarms, which for a sensitive person like myself, can be a real turn-off. We're already used to her not-so-refined manners, which first-timer friends whom we invite there always notice, as we just find it her ways of being friendly, but you can surely count on her efficiency. Just cover your nose when something is brought to your table if you come during the "bad under-arm days". I also use their "traiteur" services for birthdays or Christmas.

Freshly designed, well located near a small park, friendly and very professional. Great food and value for money. The only downside: not children friendly, however as it`s closed on Saturday and Sunday lunch time - not many chances to get there as a family. A...MoreDear Tikhon-Chicago, Thank you for giving us your feelings. We welcome children but unfortunately don't have any play-area... So they come just to make like 'older' :-) Hope to see you soon to enjoy a 'retreat' . Loungeatude Team

Diner on a Thursday evening. The place was rather full.
The reception and service are very enthusiastic and professional.
The menu offers a wide selection.
I choose the sea bream (dorade). The fish didn't taste very fresh and was served lukewarm.
There's a wide selection of wine by the glass. The quality varies.

A disappointing experience indeed: my wife and me went back to la Maison Communale remembering the great meals we had had there, and the uniquely charming atmosphere of this townhall-turned-restaurant. We had a table for two on the Terrace and had ordered food and drinks. Liquids came quickly enough, but after 45+ minutes waiting for our dishes (and, mind you, we had ordered pretty simple stuff - lasagne and fish), we asked the waiter if we would get our food "soon". It was no special evening - no birthdays, weddings, etc. being celebrated, no blackouts, no cold weather - no excuse, thus, to keep us holding on so long for... nothing. Our dishes were still not ready and we were asked to "wait". Thus we paid for our drinks, left, and vowed never to come back again. New management?

This restaurant runs a very interesting promotion on Wednesday evenings i.e. a starter, main course and dessert chosen from the menu for as little as € 27 per person. Food quality is good, service is very attentive and good selection of wines. One tip: reservation necessary for dinner on Wednesdays.

The crepes are delicious and the atmosphere in the restaurant is very nice. It's always busy and service is usually quite quick. We've been here regularly for the last months and every crepe we've tasted has been amazing. They have loads of choices (still haven't actually read through the whole menu, that's how many choices there are!), sweet and savory, for every budget - they also have loads of different beers -as you would expect in Belgium- so definitely worth a visit!
An English version of the menu would be greatly appreciated though.
