Beautiful restaurant situated in the center of the city, inside the ring. Very nice position and inside design. It's good for the relationship between price and food. The kitchen it is very traditional, is visible the French influences. Kind staff and beautiful waitress :D

Well the location and building were good. And the greeting was reasonably warm. But then it soured. We were led to a waiting area of couches behind the bar. It could not have been dirtier or had more tatty seats - we should have been...More

My wife, friend, and I ate here on 07 April. We opted for a tapas-style meal, and the food was excellent and worth the slightly negative aspect of the length of time it took to serve the food. We were there 2-2.5 hours and had...More

We had a table for six last night at Lieve and were all really impressed. We opted for the 'shared dishes' format where we got lots of little plates for starters, even more for mains and than lots more for pudding. In theory you can...More

Every season we have a different menu, with home made products like typical Belgian pates, pies and parfaits. Inspired by Belgium’s diversity, we invent and create our dishes. We put traditional Belgian products such as parsnip, purslane and chicory back on the menu.We also embrace the rich culture of Belgian beers. As a reward for our love of the combination of beer and delicious food, we had the honour to receive the Bier and Gastronomie award 2009, a national award for restaurants that combine different beers with good cuisine. Every time we review our menu, we put a lot of effort into finding the perfect combination for each dish.
