Delicious food in a very cozy setting!

I really like coming here. It is a gem of a restaurant in Ghent. Plenty of good places to eat in this city but this one stands out. Honest prices and delicious food in a setting that feels comfortable and cozy from the minute you walk in. The staff does a great job in making sure that it stays... read more

The restaurant itself was very comfortable, felt like a private dining room, with an amazing terrace in the heart of Ghent. Price wise it is very fair. The waiters were very thoughtful and satisfied all our requests, even regarding a food allergy (they modified the meal so to meet a lactose-free request.

Restaurant La Provence is housed in a stately mansion with high ceilings, which immediately gives it some grandeur. The place also has a certain calm to it, and that's also thanks to the correct and friendly but never exaggerated service here. The food is delicious and the menu changes frequently, depending on the season. It's the perfect place to finish... More

I've been going to restaurant 'La Provence' on regular occasions over the past 6 years and so far I've never been disappointed. Great location, walking distance from the center of Ghent, in a historic building and the atmosphere is always nice. Friendly staff and head chef Olivier is always around to bring that personal touch to the meal! Definitely worth... More

We choose the set 4 course menu with wine. The service, food, wine & was atmosphere of the restaurant was expectional. Both the waiter & the chef took the time out to ensure our needs where meant. Would recommend this as a must do eating experience.

Had dinner in La Provence and chose 3 courses from the menu. The menu is quite restricted (only 4 choices per course) but the food was delicious. So with the waiter being friendly and the atmosphere being cosy, I would certainly recommend this restaurant to everybody. There is free parking in the 'Visserij' which is about a 5 minutes walk...

The entrance is very nice, like walking into a cosy living room. After that it all went downhill quickly. The waiters are not up to the task.They forgot about us, resulting into people entering after us already having starters before we had a chance to order. And they placed our bottle of wine at the other side of the room,... More

We ad a great dinner here, small card (with relatively a lot of fish) and a great atmosphere. Food was excellent. To be honest: I would try the lunch. The lunch menu looked very interesting and next time in Ghent we will go for the lunch!
