I loved how cosy and relaxed the atmosphere of this small restaurant was. Run by a couple - I wish I had caught her name but the wife runs the service by herself mostly and the husband is the chef - and very skilfully maintained. The food is delicious and well prepared and the set menu with wine is great... More

Ate here on a Friday night, prebooked after reading TA reviews. Small restaurant, as previously stated ran by a couple, so 1 front of house, 1 in kitchen. Chose to eat off the set menu, including wine at 55€. Sparkling wine aperitif served with white sausage and a gorgeous green and black olive tapenade. Lovely fresh ciabatta bread and creamy... More

A warm welcome from Katarina as you enter this intimate and attractive restaurant. Her husband Yuri is the chef and these two people have been making dining guests extremely happy for around 18 years. The service as superb , the food exquisite and the bill for the set menu which included wine , was very reasonable indeed. Our hotel manager... More

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.
