The meal we had here was OK but nothing special,, I had the eel which was overpowered by the sauce. The wine was average, but the bill was not.There are better places in Ghent

My wife and I travelled to Ghent for her 50th birthday treat. I had read the T A reviews and wanted to visit this place to try some authentic Ghent food. We both ordered the Waterzooi ( chicken stew) and were not disappointed. Once we had cleared our plates the waitress brought us a second helping and we managed to... More

My Gf and I were wandering around and we had this TripAdvisor evaluation about Passion which was very good. I must say the place didn't strike me as incredibly nice from the outside, sort of wannabe elegant but I'm not place. Well, it's deceiving. The eel stew and the beef one were just... Gorgeous. Personnel was fast, nice and efficient,... More

On a winters, rainy Christmas Eve when most of the residents of Ghent seemed to be hibernating and the majority of eateries had shut for the holidays, we came across Passion. Reasonably busy but not packed at 1300, it was obvious that this was a haunt of many locals. We decided to go for the regional specials and both chose... More

Food was delicious. We shared the escargot and both ordered the rabbit. They brought out a large pot and served each basically half a rabbit. After cleaning our plates the server returned with a second pot and another serving. We were shocked. Neither of us could eat anymore. Who eats an entire rabbit? Anyway, sad to see it go to... More

had lunch here with my husband today. We made a reservation in advance and were glad we did - we got the best table in the house - right by the window, with a great view of the Belfort and the Christmas markets. I had the Flemish rabbit (EUR 23), and my husband had a pasta dish (EUR 17). His... More

Good standard Belgian fare. Not sure this place deserves to be this highly rated in tripadvisor, but the food was good and the portions were huge. Could not finish he delicious beef stew. We paid 100 euros for four, one main course each, a bottle of water and a half carafe of white wine.

We were a group of 6 and all had the flemish stew and chicken waterzooi. We thought the portions were a bit small until the waiter came out with seconds which was lovely and then thirds which was fantastic. Maybe it could be explained for those that order these dishes that seconds will be coming as the portions did look... More

We decided to go for the local specials and had Beef stew and Chicken Waterzool. Both were excellent and on reflection we perhaps should not have the prawns with garlic starter. These were also first rate and it would have been a shame to have missed them. The service was very attentive and friendly without being intrusive. One to certainly... More
