Excellent food, service not so much

We had a great degustation at Volta, although the service let this place down - it was a busy night but our sommellier totally forgot about us half way thru the meal - by the time the main arrived and we'd asked where our wine was, it took them so long we had to eat before it was cold.

Was a bit perplexed that there was not a single vegetarian dish on the menu, but still I asked for both a vegetarian starter and vegetarian main. Veggie order was taken without any problem, chef made two dishes and they were both inventive and sublime... Absolutely great. So why, why not put some veggie options on the menu; it is... More

Went here on my first night in Ghent. Started at the bar upstairs. The bartender specializes in gin drinks. Very ambitious menu and great value for food of this quality. Ample wine list. Nice space. Desserts are very strong part of menu.

Start with a drink at the bar above the restaurant, you can already order. They have really good food and very experienced waiters. Great wines also, good service. You will have a great evening!

Volta is a well known restaurant in Ghent. Well known for it's interior (the name Volta makes reference tot the prior use of the building as an electric power station) and it's fine food. Not many people know that the place can be reserved for wedding parties. Anyway I highly recommend the place for it. We had a hell of... More

I wanted so much to be able to give top score to this place! I'm sure that most guest will consider this to be one of the best places they have ever visited but, Volta have ambitions, and if I compare to the Arzaks and Nomas of the World, I'm sorry, but Volta is not there... yet. We had lunch... More

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
