Karel de Stoute is located in Patershol, one of the nices parts of Ghent close to the center. The restaurant offers a 3,4 or 5 course meal where you get to choose the main course (two choices), the rest depends on the season and is set by the chef. A 3 course meal starts at 50eur with accompanying wines for... More

There is really nothing negative to say about the food. Great starters, very fine first course, tasteful and great looking main course and incredible desert. I would definitely recommend it for the food. The setting is located in Patershol (centre of Ghent which is a nice place to walk around). The restaurant as such misses this special thing. They tried... More

....without making a reservation months upfront. We were lucky..30 Dec, our reserved restaurant let us know they were not open just half an hour before we had to go. Called Karel de Stoute and last table for 2 that evening... This was for us "the" revelation since a very long time. This guy can cook...the new upcoming talent in Flanders!... More

The restaurant is located in a very old part of Ghent called the Patershol, with very good restaurants. Karel De Stoute is one of those! The atmosphere inside is dull, with whispering people and nobody laughs. However, this negative feature is more than compensated by the excellent, delicious and very original menus. So if you only care about great food,... More

Menu is very limited, you have just 1 or 2 options to choose from. 1 or 2 more would be perfect in my opinion. Food is really good, very appetizing and well prepared. Service is ok, but not waw. You can sit outside, it seems a nice mini garden. But there are pigeons flying over and sitting in the trees..... More

yesterday night i had one of the best surprises ever in a restaurant. Very close to where I live, in one of the oldest parts of the city close to the Castle, you can find the restaurant Karel de Stoute. I had been there moren than 10 years ago. The place had different owners, but the food was very good.... More

A fine restaurant. Great food, delicious wines and smooth service. Why only three? Because we find that it is rather on the pricey side. Small restaurant with a lot of staff so maybe that's the reason. But we dined extensively for € 50 less at michelin starred Vrijmoed a few months back and Karel de Stoute is not of this... More

Cosy small restaurant, with inversely proportional marvellous food. The menu is very well designed (easy to chose, which I like a lot). Had a 4 course meal, and every course was mesmerising, intriguing and felt rewarding...ummm. A good blend of flavours, technique, and service. Looking forward to coming again.
