Nice bar, locals and friendly staff

We stopped off here after visiting Gent for a few hours. We were pleased with the friendly service and very reasonable prices. We'll worth a visit

Visited Den Turk twice in a four night stay in Ghent. It has a good range of beers and a friendly mixed clientele. We got chatting with a friendly local who told us that the bar attracts a range of locals including politicians from the town hall across the road,

Very friendly Belgian bar in city centre! Spent a few hours here until the early hours chatting with the very friendly English speaking locals. Great choice of beers and although I did n't try it the food looked very good.

If like us on our recent Ghent weekend you appreciate a beer or two before dinner, then try Cafe Den Turk. This unpretentious bar is full of jolly Belgians. This is not a restaurant, just a bar for enjoyment of Belgian beers, happy and interested staff to serve you. A great place to get a flavour of Belgium.
