We've been here a few times and, frankly, are quite happy to keep this little gem of a restaurant to ourselves (I like it that we can almost always get a table on the same night that we call). But sometimes it's important to share the love. And this restaurant really deserves to have a much higher rating on here, especially when some of the other restaurants are considered. So, what do you get a Bistec? Certainly a surprise. Who would think that tucked away in a backstreet in Heverlee such a great restaurant could be discovered? The interior is modern and inviting, with accents reminding the diner why they are there: To enjoy a fantastic steak. The breadth of choice of meat is good, perhaps more than is actually required. For the rest, there's not much to say. We've all had bad steak, and that stinks. Chewing, and chewing, and chewing... and wondering what to do with the gristle in your mouth that you can't bring yourself to swallow but don't want to spit out, even subtly, in polite company. You'll never have that experience here. The meat is great quality and Bistec steaks are always cooked to perfection (I'm a Brit, and my experience in Belgium is that what I think of as 'medium rare' is different to what is generally considered 'saignant', so I explain, and I get my steak 'medium rare', perfectly as I like it - this is more of an exception than a rule, I find in Belgium). Great selections of wine, good chips, what more can you ask for?! We weren't a fan of the desserts, but who cares?! Fill up on great steak, that's why you're there. A nice little hazelnut liquor at the end of the meal, and everyone goes home happy. Staff are friendly and informative (once we had the new girl - but hell, we've all been the new girl, or maybe new boy, or maybe new 'I/A' - and everyone's allowed a first day where they don't know so much). Toilets are good and clean - always important if you ask me. Overall it's great. So please do check it out. But only a few of you at a time. I still wanna get my table whenever I'm ready.
