Gastronomic pleasure in our refurbished restaurant!

Cum Laude Restaurant

Do you like to eat well? And preferably in a beautiful setting? Perfect! Because at Cum Laude Restaurant you will lunch or dine in the grand surroundings of a unique UNESCO World Heritage site.

In the centuries-old historic setting of the Grand Beguinage our chefs serve French-Belgian cuisine, à la carte and in step with the seasons, from Monday to Friday. Our chef Tom Vanhoegaerden and sous-chef Wout Grevendonk offer you some delicious suggestions every day!

Weather permitting, you can also enjoy their culinary delights on the most beautiful terrace in Leuven! We serve the same menu in our Garden Lounge as inside.

Our restaurant can accommodate groups of maximum 10 guests. As of 7 guests we request you choose one menu, in advance, for the whole party.
