European in Leuven

Interesting combinations of high-quality, locally sourced ingredients, plenty of seafood and classy vegetarian alternatives feature at Zarza, and are best paired with matched wines (€24 to €36) or beers (€19 to €25).

While the front room feels a little formal, the verandah behind is more relaxed and the small garden is delightful, with potted herbs and dangling paper lanterns in the copper beech.
