Ignore the outside - very bland and unappealing. If it hadn't been for reading the other reviews, we wouldn't have bothered. However, once inside the decor is much better and the staff very welcoming. Food was very good; particularly the Prawns Passion starter and the Belgian stew.

We spent six days in Ghent, so obviously we tried many restaurants. We declared our meal at Passion to be the best! Their Ghent specialties, the Carbonade Flamande and the Waterzooi, were terrific (We had tried these dishes at other restaurants too!) The wines and beers were also fine, and service was prompt and friendly. We can't comment on the... More

Just don't take the Irish rib eye and you will not be disappointed. The beef stew is the best that you can get in Ghent.

The beef stew is excellent. The prawn/scampi salad was good, could do with less dressing. Also had a taste of fried eel. Would order this next time. Apple cake was good. We were in Ghent for the day. Been to this restaurant before and would go again.

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
