delicious and hearty breakfast

we went to this place both mornings for a really good breakfast. there is an English menu if you need it. I had the breakfast including eggs, juice, coffee, cheese, croissants, jelly, bacon. i may be forgetting something but this was a very filling breakfast indeed and it was delicious.

We arrived in Ghent quite early in the day and looked for place to have breakfast. A helpful person we met on the street directed us to Amfora. We were served the most delicious breakfast with everything you could ask for at such a reasonable price, staff very efficient and we didn't have to wait long for it to be... More

We have visited this cafe a few times, as we visit Ghent quite frequently. It is in a great location, close to the centre and good for people watching, particularly if you get an upstairs window seat. The atmosphere is great - almost always buzzing with people and lots of families, particularly sharing tables upstairs. The service is friendly and... More

We were very disappointed with this restaurant. Staff was extremely rude. They barely cleaned the table, then when we asked if they had a baby seat, they pointed it to us instead of bringing it. We are currently still waiting for our food, it has been more than 40 minutes and nothing. Some customers arrived after us and were already... More

We ate here wanting a quick lunch and it was busy so we assumed it was a good bet. Unfortunately we were wrong. The service was sparse, waiters and waitresses did not make eye contact and were pretty rude. I think they are probably quite badly understaffed to be fair. The food was ok but rather overpriced and we were... More

Dropped in here for breakfast on our last morning in Gent. Slightly unsmiling waiter and the menu was in Dutch but, after a bit of deciphering, the result was a success. Two fried eggs with bacon, fruit juice, coffee, pain chocolat, breads, cheese and ham plus jams - it was the full Belgian! Although 11euro, so not cheap, I think... More

Located in the Korte Kruisstraat, near the "Belfort" & shopping street. It is a small bistro with a Greek theming. Seats are comfy & you have a nice tetras. Food: we took 3 times the Vol-au-vent & 1 time the Ham with tireletein. We noticed this restaurant because the offered a 3 course menu for only 16 euros. Rest of... More

Offers a diverse menu selection. Waitress was super nice & translated the menu for us. Stay away from their version of the local "soup". Salads are average at best. Nothing special overall. Not a place I would recommend to anyone that I am friends with.
