Beautiful food, wonderful presentation

We had lunch during the Ghent jazz festival and enjoyed the fixed menu. The chef should be congratulated on the beautiful and tasty vegetarian plates. The food was impeccable. However, the service was lacking. The waiters were pretentious and did not care about us because we were not guests at... read more

This restaurant is part of the Sandton Grand Hotel Reylof. The dining room has traditional old world elegance and the tables are well spaced out. We were kindly given a menu which had been translated into English. However the translation left a little to be desired. The service was supposed to be stiff and formal however it didn't quite come... More

Me and my girlfriend have been here once, with an offered voucher. It was simply amazing! We haven't eaten such a good meal in ages. It was prepared in ways we never thougt were possible for these kind of vegetables, the meat was top, and the dessert was also super. But al of that wasn't to much, so we could... More

I booked a table for 6. Although, except for ourselves, the restaurant was empty (nobody else!), the waitress told us that the chef in the kitchen could not handle 6 different orders! (what would they have told us if we would sit on 6 different tables????) The food an service was nothing special and way too overpriced. You find much... More

I dined here a few times while staying at the hotel connected to this restaurant. Service is excellent and the food is creative and delicious. Clever amuse bouches and good presentation of the food as well. Ambiance in the restaurant is also very good. Stick to classic dishes and fish. I once had a burger craving and ordered that, and...

I have stayed in Hotel Reylof for 4 nights and have enjoyed the Restaurant Lof 6 times. Not once did it cross my mind to go and eat elsewhere. The restaurant is modern but warm and the service is excellent. On top the dishes are masterpieces of creativity in layout. More importantly the flavors are perfect. It does not stop... More

We had the 5 course dinner with matching wines. The waiter was very kind and served the best wines. The waiter had a lot of knowledge of wine/food combinations which resulted in some talks about this which we appreciated. The pace of the first three courses was excellent, the last two courses took too long which did not add to... More
