It was a big family evening and it was the right choice for a special dinner. They serve every dish with a special wine that suits this dish, it is extraordinary, it is special, it is unforgettable. You can choose a menu and in the beginning u will be surprised how small the dish is. But they are constantly bringing... More

We really enjoyed the recommended carpaccio and risotto with very nice white wine of the house. Great for a business lunch - but must be very nice for a romantic dinner as well.

Excellent food. Nice atmosphere with an element of formality but not at all stuffy. Friendly welcome. We were also given many extra little tasty treats which were just brought and additional to what was on the menu. Brilliant value for money.

You have to pay a fair amount of money, but the food, atmosphere, wine and location are just perfect. Try 5 courses with wine menu.

We kind of arrived to Karel De Stoute by accident .We were planning on visiting another place which was fully booked, and boy, was this a positive surprise. Every course in the menu we took was a small piece of art on itself, not to speak of the rich amount of flavors in almost too complicated to grasp! The service... More

The Restaurant is in the 'Patershol' a rather touristic but nice part of Ghent with small typical streets and lots of restaurants. This definitively is one of the better ones in this area. We had a very nice dinner for 4 at an acceptable price level. Service was good, a bit nervous though the first half hour, one apetizer after... More

First time visit following a recommendation and has been absolutely worth it ! Located in Patershol, one of the more lively and entertaining areas of Ghent. We absolutely loved the menu and went for the 5 course menu which was supplemented by 4 starter "amuse bouche" and 3 "apres desert", an absolutely daring and very tasteful culinary journey at a...

Probably the finest food I've ever eaten. The presentation is breath-taking and the flavors are unique and in novel combinations. I recommend the wine pairing as well as selecting the most courses you can finish (3, 4 or 5 course options are available).

A brisk walk in a downpour was well worth it for this amazing meal! The menu offers a choice of three, four, or five courses with an optional wine pairing. The food is nothing short of mind-blowingly delicious. Each dish is delicately prepared and beautifully plated. With an array of wonderful flavors and textures, this culinary experience was one to...
