You will find all kinds of restaurants here: French and Belgium cuisine, a popular Thais restaurant and sure something that wil fits you; small shops with a selection of good wines and specialities of cakes and chocolates.

Narrow network of streets, old buildings, interesting shops and restaurants. Even if you don't eat there, the strolling is wonderful.

This is one of the oldest parts of Ghent, with narrow and cobble stone streets. It was my favourite area of Ghent. Definitely not to miss!

This historic area is good to wander around. There are lots of restaurants, but when we were there, mid-week, there were many in the little side streets, which were shut.

beautiful little part of the city, with very small street and cobblestones, just be careful because cars are allowed too and get very close. Many great restaurants, but a bit pricier, more of a bohemian-chique feel to it.

Lots of Turkish restaurants that serve halal food. Tried Gok Restaurant over there and had a seafood platter for two, which was amazing and reasonably priced.

Think we walked round these streets at the wrong time. They were nice to walk round but think around dusk might of been nicer. Lights would of been lit and the buildings would of been lit up. Loved looking at the different facades here and some buildings are really old! Do recommend but we'd go early evening if here again:)
