I have never had the pleasure of dining at this restaurant but have numerous times gone for drinks at the bar. I can only assume the food is as excellent as the drinks! A large variety of cocktails or drinks are made by professional and friendly bartenders with flair that adds to the experience. The drinks are excellent and there... More

Ghent has been making an enormous effort to attract and keep young chefs. In the past ten years the number of really good restaurants has increased substantially, and Volta can definitely be added to the list. We had planned to go to this place for quite a while, and finally got invited here. It turned out to be an excellent... More

We went for the lunch menu at 45 euros, unsure whether we wanted spend 65 but next time we'll go in the evening as the young chef and his young team obviously know what they want to do.....'Classic' with an 'edge'. We loved all our courses but we'll give special mention to the asparagus tips with delicious peppery scrambled eggs... More

This good restaurant was recommended by a colleague who used to work near Ghent. The menu is in Flemish only. However, the waiters are fluent in English and very helpful. The meal was at 13:00 and it was obvious that this time is mainly for business. There were only a few couples. The waiter asked if we were in a... More

I absolutely loved this and probably ranked in my personal top ten of dining experienced. We took the full dinner menu and as I am allergic to dairy and lactose intollerant i was very curious how they would handle this. When booking out table for 5 they said I could just say it at the table when ordering the food... More

We were here for a leisurely lunch and by the end, the delicious food almost made up for the disappointingly slow and inefficient service. We had to wait (no exaggeration) 10-15 minutes to take our initial drink order, and as long for it to arrive and had to prompt the staff on numerous occasions throughout the meal when asking for...

We visited Volta with friends and enjoyed the bar before having dinner in the restaurant. The bar is a great place, good cocktails, nice environment. Volta is a stylish, minimalist restaurant - food is delicate and lives up to the expectations set in the press and through word of mouth. Beautiful dishes, taste and structure are a perfect match and... More
