We've been there four times and except nostalgia we also found very tasty food (the tartar is the best with a 'twist' we ever ate), a pleasant service, nice atmosphere and good wines. Was a classic in Ghent and is one again in the reborn version!

This has been one of my favorite restaurants in Ghent of all my time. Given that I have lived here my whole life (31years) that says something. The nice thing about this place is that it has this cult-vibe... It's known to a lot but not to some... and you get to sit amongst a great variety kind of customers... More

A no nonsense place, both owners love their job. Great food, I just adore the cheese friet = hamburger, onions, cheese, salad and fries. I you visit Ghent you have to visit Martino

Martino is a favorite of mine. The food is delicious -- you have to try their take on a "cheeseburger and the steak tartare is probably the best in Ghent. It's always best to have a reservation if you're coming during peak hours, as the place tends to be quite crowded. Service is excellent and prices reasonable.

The kindness of Pascaline and the lovely waiter are already a good reason for coming. Once you've tasted the Steak Tartate façon Martino, you swear to yourself to come back once a month. This place is nicely crowded and you better book a table because it's always full. And we know why. The meat is delicious and today we even... More

I ordered in English, and... More

Here you eat the best steak (ever). Recommended is their steak martino is bit like steak bearnaise but with tomated and spicier. The hostess was super friendly. Not a reastaurant to sit back and relax. More fast and good!
