Fine dining on the canal bank

We had reserved a table and upon arrival were shown to a great spot right next to the canal. A rather strange starter of 'minestrone' soup which was really a collection of vegetables with a tomato sorbet (delicious) was followed by two superb main courses - duck with peaches and lamb chops... read more

Took the Market menu...big mistake...the food looked poorly and tasted bland. The waiters were distant and seemed bored. The only plus came from the owner/ manager (?) who felt bad about us not liking the food and wanted to offer us something to drink on the house. But this definitely isn't worth the money they charge.

We ate at this restaurant during a short break in Ghent. The weather was superb, so the outside tables were heaving, but nonetheless the service was efficient, friendly, polite and first rate. The lunch time set menu was tremendous value for money, especially when you consider the quality of the food. Of the four places at which we had meals... More

We had an excellent lunch together with our friends in this beautifully decorated historic house. Service was very friendly and helpful. If you have the occasion, this is really a very good choice, and the low price is hiding the high standard!

The food was beautifully cooked and prepared,and accompanied by fairly quiet operatic music in the background. We arrived on a cold night, so I don't know if you can sit outside to take in the wonderful view over the river, but we had a window seat so were lucky. The staff went out of their way to make us feel... More

We were visiting Ghent for the first time & used Trip Advisor to select this restaurant. Everything about our visit was very special. The restaurant itself is beautiful & the photos do not do it justice. The menu selection was exciting & we were not disappointed when our food arrived. Two of our party are coeliac but this was no...

The restaurant of our choice was fully booked, so we made a reservation at Allegro Moderato based on the good reviews on Tripadvisor. Allegro Moderato must have had an absolute off-day or our expectations for an evening filled with fine cuisine were too high. The food: 5 course degustation menu. The first course came very quickly: poached duck liver with... More
