We visited Kalypta whilst on holiday from Spain after many years . This is a fantastic restaurant! Very nice atmosphere, huge variety of dishes. Especially really good food, staff were super friendly, attentive and accommodating. Everything's clean, tidy and very nice. This is one of those places you need to go while there in leuven. I strongly recommend .

Excellent food and a great choice in a central place in Leuven, next to the famous old market. The very friendly multicultural staff served our drinks and delicious Morocon dishes with couscous.

We had a really nice lunch at Kalypta. Loved the tapas plate with something on it for everyone to like. Very big portion as well, we couldn't finish it !

The restaurant dressing, as its multicultural menu was attracting us. Average food quality and nice service, made us enjoying the meal. Unfortunately the Patatas Bravas (for which we had high expectations) were not as expected.

A great place for a nice dinner. My friend and I happily stumbled upon Kalypta and enjoyed a fantastic shrimp curry dish. They have an extensive selection of great options! The service was great and the owner was very friendly. The next time we're in Leuven we'll definitely come back!!

We've been here twice and both times we left without eating. The first time we left after a 1 hour wait (without even ordering). The second time we were able to order after 40 minutes, but another hour and 20 minutes later we didn't receive any food (even ordering drinks took 30 minutes). We decided to leave after the 2...

Perfect mixture of different cuisines, which is just perfect for when you're in an indecisive mood. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful and always attentive. The chef is an artist! The food tastes yum, whatever you may have ordered from their huge menu. Better than the food I get back home in the UK.
