Great local specialities

Excellent mussels, in season obviously. Also other local dishes of good quality and taste. Good portions also, not too little, not too much either. Recommendation for locals and visitors

Went there, In May, because they are supposed to serve very good mussels. Mussels were extremely small and dry, not good at all. Apparently May is not the right season, and while all other restaurants do not serve mussels if quality is not good, the Bridge served us a plate of very expensive and really not good mussels. Ok -... More

One of the few places open for dinner on a Monday evening in Gent. Had an early dinner here. Sat overlooking the square, it has a nice location. The carbonnade was tasty, though a little cold. Good beer selection and decent frittes, can't really complain about that!

When visiting the Bridge I myself ordered a 'Gentse Stoverij', a local speciallity which was decent enough. My girlfriend however had a chicken breast which was absolutely tasteless. Shame really when you pay 20euro's for a meal and you could have done a better job at home. Had a nice time nevertheless. The service was good, nice location, the sun... More

I am on holiday with my husband and young daughter in Gent and I must say having been for dinner and lunch here- we were impressed with both experiences. The staff here are fantastic, so charming and welcoming- you feel very relaxed dining here. It felt as though they couldn't do enough for us. The menu has a variety of... More

For such a touristy spot in an extreme tourist area plus being a die hard guest, I am ALWAYS pleasantly surprised at how good the food is & how nicely drinks are served! Service always finishes well. Top spot in Ghent!!

We had a warm welcome one chilly Saturday evening. Our order was promptly taken, and we settled down to a very reasonably priced flask of red wine. Our food was excellent. Between us we had a very rich fish stew, with lots of flavour and nicely cooked vegetables, and grilled lamb with chips. The bill was not as high as... More

Unfortunately a bit of a generic tourist restaurant. Food was ok, could have been worse, but don't go here if you want something interesting. Massive portions though!

Went with business relations for a great dinner with Moules frites. Delicious and well prepared. Even though it was the last of the season. Fries were excellent 😄 Service was good and efficient. Good selection of both food & drinks.

During our first weekend in Gent, a good while ago, my family stopped at Bridge for lunch. I had some amazing mussels and we just had a nice time, even when the heavens opened to a downpour that left us scrambling inside for cover. Since that first time we have come back often, there is a good selection of Gent... More
