APERO WINEBAR & SEAFOOD

OYSTERS - CLAMS & SHELL - FISH

STORY

WE

LOVE OCTOPUS

&

ADORE WINE


Ideal to escape the busy shopping and restaurant streets  Octobar is a tiny winebar hidden in the historic centre of Leuven on a small square.


Octobar is not a restaurant, nor a cafe.  Additional to the drinks we serve seafood bites. Small plates as an appetizer or in combination as a meal. Join us cosy at the bar for a quick drink while shopping, hang around after work with your colleagues or meet your partner and friends to start your evening.

 

We focus on seafood and fish, preparing it in a pure way  trying to get the best possible flavors out of it.

 

ON THE MENU

EVERY DAY IS ANOTHER DAY

SO OUR BITES

We serve a variety of fresh seafood. Think oysters, crawfish, crab, lobster and fish. Discover what's on the chalk board and remember we buy fresh so sold out is… sold out. 


OYSTERS

straight out of the ocean, we like serving French oysters and preferable from the region of Île d'Oléron. Pure with a vinaigrette or gratinated. Best served with a glass of champagne. Cheers!


OCTOPUS

what else in Octobar? Prepared in BBQ sauce, served with black mashed potatoes or squid stuffed with fennel and chorizo, baby squid baked in olive oil and garlic. Only some of the options which comes out of that little spot at the end of our place.


CLAMS & SHELLS

Clams, Bouchots “mussels”, North Sea crab, crawfish, shrimps, Kingcrab or maybe some… lobster? They all pass the revue one way or another. Cold or hot. Sweet, sour or chili, one piece or many pieces. Just make the right choice and pick a wine to make it completed.


FISH

different types, many ways of preparation. Ceviche, marinated, steamed and baked or perhaps one of our signatures, Graved Lachs. Salmon prepared with a secret mixture of salt, sugar, pink pepper and dill.
