Amazing Pancakes

Nice and cosy restaurant with good service and even better pancakes! Ideal to sit and meet up with some new friends and get to know each other.

My boyfriend and I were looking for a nice place to have a snack, and we just found this pannekoekenhuis by chance. We were amazed by the presentation of the pancakes and the quality of the food. And the service was just excellent as well. If you're looking for a cosy and hidden place, this is the best.

If you are visiting Ghent a must is to stop by Gwenola's for either a savoury or Sweets crêpe. The place is now an institution in Ghent and has excellent service and excellent crêpes and coffee. Try The crêpe with Brown Sugar and butter or The One with Calvados!

I was thinking I'd get a waffle, but the Pannekoekenhuis only offered Breton style crepes, so I said, ok, let's try one of those, what's the most traditional? The waitress told me that butter and brown sugar was the iconic crepe, so that's what I ordered, with a cup of coffee. Dang that was good. The crepe was a super-authentic... More

We ate here on the Saturday at lunchtime, the crepe was good - a savoury one, ham,egg & cheese. It was really good but I couldn't finish it all! Again recommended by our host!

We ate breakfast here on our last day in Ghent before heading back to Brussels. Our meal, Buckwheat crepes filled with ham and cheese, topped with two eggs - all the essential food groups! Excellent fortification for our rail journey back to Brussels!

I visited Gwenola with a friend of mine to have pancakes. First, we had to wait quite long for someone to take our order, although it wasn't crowded, and the waitress wasn't friendly. My friend picked a pancake with butter and it literally swam in butter. When she complained about it, the waitress didn't want to help her and said... More

I can't believe I've probably walked a thousand times passed this place. It looked old and dated and not very inviting. Hence I never stepped in. When searching for a restaurant to eat with friends on Tripadvisor I noticed the high rank of this place. So when walking passed it this noon with my parents we decided to give it... More

Nice place for a Saturday brunch. The pancakes were really tasty. And i would personally recommend their mocca milkshake!
