We ate at this restaurant on a recent visit to Ghent on the basis of reviews we'd read on Trip Advisor, but found our experience in no way matched those of other contributors. I ordered the vegetarian salad and the dish delivered to the table could only be described as a mess - a mixture of salad items topped with... More

Wonderful place for dinner. My hubby had traditional stew and it was so tasty and a lot of it, honestly two people could share it. I had pasta with fresh mozzarella and I enjoyed every single bite of it. Highly recommended.

Good, traditional Flemish food served in a matter of fact way – We had just arrived in Ghent and simply wanted a quick (but good)meal. We called in and just had two main dishes - beef stew and chicken Waterzoi. Other dishes on the menu included steak, eel stew, rabbit stew – very Flemish. Both of our dishes were good.... More

We've been to this restaurant several times and the food is excellent. The beef stew is the best I've ever had and they give you a whole pot full with endless chips! I've eaten a few stews in Ghent and this is by far the best.

A merry band of bikers from the UK (and Canada and California) we were on a mission to find the world famous Belgian chips with mayo. This had become an ironic death march through Ghent in the fading light of the eve before Easter; we had visited no fewer than five likely-looking restaurants and NOBODY was serving chips! Did we...

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
