#310 Nice dinner at vegan resto Lento, Hasselt

restaurant review #310 – Lento is a vegan restaurant in the city center of Hasselt (Limburg, BE). We were here a couple of months ago, in the Summer, when we spent some days in Limburg.

There was no a la carte dining, but we could choose between a 3 course (28€ pp.) and a 4 course menu (32 euro pp.). We choose the 3-course menu, and had different dishes between the two of us for each plate.

Nice food, original, and very reasonably priced, at 28 euro per person this is actually quite cheap (for a starter/soup , main dish and dessert). Especially since it’s not the classic ‘wrap’ ‘burger’ or ‘salad’ type of food.

We had a lovely dinner. The food was nice and service was friendly. The restaurant is divided into several smaller rooms and it did feel a bit crowded though (tables very close to each other, which does feel awkward, especially in COVID times).

Restaurant is on ground floor, toilet is also on ground floor. Did not see an accessible toilet. Toilet was clean and tidy.

What was a bit frustrating is that there was quite a mix up with our reservation. I made a reservation by telephone in the morning and that was OK. Then in the afternoon I got a call back that they had made a mistake and were actually fully booked. Then another hour later I again got a call that we could go for dinner. Strange.
But glad we made it there in the end 😄

All in all: we had a nice dinner. Really good value for money.
