Hungry in the late evening

Th best place for a great steak in the late evening. When everything else is closed and you want a great piece of meat in a nice setting, go there. Open until 1 AM. The people you see there are cool and often 'work' in the neighbourhood and everyone is relax there. You can also spot famous people... read more

Do not recommend. We had a bacon and egg burger that came with no buns(not a real burger!), meat patty was bad quality and well overpriced compared to other real burgers in Gent. And a meatball in sauce dish, not really good either. Prices are expensive compared to other brasseries in Gent. Food doesn't even compare. Had to pay to... More

Being customers of the 'old' Martino we have discovered the new version. 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

We come in..our table was ready...we sit, and after about 10 min our order is taken. We both had the Cheese-BurgerEgg Burger...which isn't an NorthAmerican burger at all...but it is DELICIOUS. I ordered in English, and... More
