Unhurried!

Some previous reviewers have commented on the slow service at Volta. There is a perfectly good reason for this and the restaurant is all the better for it; food of this quality and standard of presentation doesn't come in a packet, it takes time!

It is a long time since we visited Volta and we had heard that it had been sold to new owners. This is always a bit worrying. However, the food and the service were outstanding. Really interesting and novel dishes all cooked to perfection. Great Sommelier too.

This restaurant is outside the main centre of Ghent. It took us 25 minutes to walk from the Marriot hotel to an area where inner city meets suburbia. When we arrived we were told that the upstairs bar was closed and we were required to sit outside for aperitifs. It's was a fairly cool evening and we were seated on... More

The interior inside this funky bar & great restaurant reminds me of a loft in NYC, it seems to be an old electrical fabric that's a bit renovated. This year it will receive 1 michelin star! The food is in perfect combination with your taste buds, it's pretty expensive for one meal, but i can assure you, you get plenty... More

We booked lunch here over Easter weekend, and though we really enjoyed the food, the three and a half hours it took was much longer than we wanted to spend over a meal. Admittedly we opted for a drink in the bar beforehand, but placed our order for the four-course option whilst up there, so felt there was no real... More

Loved the menu - never expected to enjoy so many tastings in one meal. Take your time people and let the kitchen staff do their thing - they know what they are doing.

The restaurant is situated in an ancient electricity factory which has been restored with great taste. The building is divided in two parts, upstairs the cocktail bar, where you can have your appetizers before and your coffee after your meal. Downstairs is the dining room. The guests can see the kitchen staff working at all times and that gives the... More

We ordered the menu and received so much more than that! First some delicious appetizers, then the 5 course meal, and then some little bites to finish off. It was so good, that I can't even choose which course I preferred! Every bite was a very pleasant surprise. The staff is also really friendly. Ask the sommelier for help, because... More

We had dinner at this restaurant - when we got there, we were directed to the bar upstairs where we had G&T of the day and we were given the menu and explained about the 5 course menu - I am vegetarian but they had a 5 course menu specially for the vegetarian and I was extremely pleased with the...
