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...

The chef has a complete understanding of the inspiration required to produce unique flavours that are daring but delicious. Wine pairings were perfect, Service was adequate, but the wait for the cheque was 25 minutes too long. However, the culinary genius that we enjoyed has us leaving this restaurant in a great mood!

I have a lot of respect for the chef, Thomas. I had the chance to work with him for a day and you can honestly tell he does his job with great passion and love for the products he is working with. Do not hesitate dining here.

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
