We stopped off here spontaneously after a long walk round town. It's in a highly attractive house, well furnished, plenty of space between tables, elegant service and reliable classic French cuisine. The set lunch, about 21€, was a well-considered short menu, with the choice of 3 oysters as a starter & a single dessert, tiramisu. All eminently satisfying, & for... More

After a good visit of the Louvre Museum In Lens (FR) we went back to our beautiful home town Ghent to have dinner in Restaurant Le Duc for ending the day trip. It was the perfect choice we made. The restaurant is very close to the center but in a less known area but do not hesitate to go. You... More

Quoting my facebookless mother: I've only detected this pearl a few weeks ago and this is really a hidden gem. I went for lunch with my husband and my son and we took the menu. Every course was excellent and well balanced, the service was impeccable and the waiter very polite. We liked the interior because of the beautiful house... More

We dined at Le Duc after reading the amazing reviews online. We must have been eating at a very different restaurant to the one described in online reviews! A very average amuse bouche arrived with no explanation whatsoever as to what it was. Thank goodness there was one as we waited 45 mins for our starter to arrive which really... More

We were staying at the Sandton Reylof Grand Hotel which is right across the street from Le Duc and were looking for a good meal within an easy walk. We were delighted to find a world class restaurant with superb food and attentive service! The restaurant is set in a elegant homelike setting and the presentation of the food is... More

We drove for an hour out of our way to revisit this restaurant while we were back in Belgium. The food was excellent again, I was particularly impressed with the fois gras as I had eaten a comparable dish recently at Alain Ducasse at the Dorchester and this was better !! Again three of us had the tasting menu and... More

One of the best meals I have ever had! Interesting and unique combinations of favors an textures, absolutely delicious. Reasonably priced for such an amazing meal. We had chicken and steak, hard to differentiate these items but they nailed it on both. The desserts, especially the chocolate cake, were amazing.

We came here purely because of the excellent reviews on Tripadvisor. It took us a while to find as it is a bit off the beaten track. Dimitri was very accommodating as we changed the numbers and the time a couple of times. Food was perfectly cooked and served in the lovely courtyard. It was a pity that it was... More

only a few steps away from the heart of the city but definitely one of the best places in Gent. A young chef and a young owner/host make sure you are spoiled from the beginning to the end. Dimitri watches over his guests and makes sure everything goes smooth. Classical french kitchen with italian touches are the basis, but the... More

Great food and service. The five course menu was excellent,only let down a little by the dessert which was slightly disappointing. Bit of a hiccup when the credit card machine packed up and all the cash machines around the area were also down. However we had a lovely evening , the host Dimitri is clearly destined for great things with... More
