After reading good reviews on Trip Advisor, we went to Valentijn for my husband's birthday while visiting Ghent in Belgium. Valentijn was everything we'd hoped for and better. Very intimate, comfortable, and cozy. Excellent service, just the right level of attentiveness. And the food? Oh my. UNBELIEVABLY DELICIOUS. Have a look at my photos ~ it tasted even better than...

Don't be afraid to enter this restaurant as you will not be disappointed. The menu at a very reasonable price is listed outside, so no surprises. The hostess is very friendly and helpful. Food is more than average and beautifully served. The setting of the restaurant is cosy in a historical building. Our only remark is that the stairs to... More

Our best meal whilst in Belgium! Small intimate restaurant, all inclusive menu if preferred inclusive of wine. Very attentive service to each diner. Absolutely super, would not hesitate to recommend, so glad we chose this restaurant for our only night's stay in Ghent!

We were looking for a nice restaurant for my birthdaydinner. After checking out several restaurants on the internet and from walking by, we suddently ran into the restaurant Valentijn and decided by the rates on tripadvisor to try it. The menucard is quite small, which shows, that the food must be really fresh. We decided to take the 4-course-meal, which... More

4 of us visited on a Saturday evening. Turned up on spec. Getting a table was not a problem, although I would recommend a reservation as there is not a lot of spaces available. The restaurant layout still feels like the original house layout, floor not flat ( a few steps, so be careful as you walk around) Space is... More

Found this restaurant on TripAdvisor and it was great, food was great, wine was kept flowing and the service was top notch. It has everything you'd want for a great restaurant experience.

We must have visited the night after StephenR285, as we had the same menu, which was really tasty, so see his review for some of the choices :) The other choice for starter was smoked mozzarella and tomato, with basil and spicy guacamole, which I had. For the main course, my wife had the other choice, which was cod and... More

After reading the Trip Adviser reviews we booked in for a Monday night and were glad we did. The place was full and we have missed out if we had not booked. We both opted for the four course menu with wine and coffee included (55 euros a head) and we were not disappointed. There were two choices for each... More

This restaurant is such a lovely place to dine, it is a small restaurant in Ghent, I was there early before its opening time (6.30pm) hoping there was a table for two and luckily we got a table. It was the first time we had Belgian food and we enjoyed it a lot, I had very nice homemade smoke salmon... More

I went here a couple of times, and it never loses its quality. The service is great, the cosy setting makes sure that you have a lovely evening and the food is to die for. This is lovely for couples, but also great for a family trip (of course, with older children) to celebrate something (or if you want fine... More
