Lunch

I wanted to try something traditional. I had the Flemish style rabbit. It was delicious and a huge portion. The amount on the plate was half of it; the remainder is in the dish behind it.

We were two for dinner. We had carrot soup, beef stew and vol-au-vent. The food was delicious. The restaurant is lovely, very cosy and the staff was very friendly. The location is great, just opposite St Baafs. The prices aren't very cheap but nice portions makes it good value.

I went there because it was convenient when I was hungry bathe Flanders beef stew was very good and fairly priced. The restaurant has a variety of local dishes

We had walked past this restaurant lots of times but not noticed it. After looking on trip advisor for somewhere close to our hotel with a decent review, we decided to give it a try and we're glad that we did! I had the vol au vent, which was delicious.

I actually ate here twice both times having the goat cheese salad and a nice glass of wine. The salad had a good amount of goat cheese wrapped in bacon combined with arugula, figs, melon, apple, tomatoes, pine nuts and more. There are lots of restaurants in Ghent but I saw none with a salad like this. Also it is... More

We ate here on a cold Sunday evening and found it a warming experience. The decor is smart and inviting. we both chose one course - the special Ghent beef stew cooked in beer. It was excellent and the house red wine was very acceptable. The restaurant looks nice from the outside and we had a very nice Sunday evening... More

Passion isn't a cheap restaurant. Dishes cost around 20 euros. But the food I had there was delicious. I had cod with small potatoes and vegetables. This was not on the menu. Service was good as well.
