This is the second time we have visited this restaurant and enjoyed the beautiful setting although this time it was too hot for comfort but the temperatures had soared and nowhere was cool, they were closing for a few days as there was a musical festival on in Ghent and did not have our first choices available from the menu...

Housed in an all city mansion that is nicely renovated, it has a very nice atmosphere. The menu has mostly local dishes and specialities. The food was exquisite and service was very nice.

Enjoyed a romantic dinner with my spouse in this stylish, classical restaurant. Started with a delightful amuse bouche of mussles. Follwed with the best shrimp croquette I've had in the low countries. I tried the dover sole which was okay. My wife loved her lobster (though do not expect American portions). The olten chocolate with raspberries for dessert was supreme.... More

We have visited this restaurant on a number of occasions and always really enjoyed it. The interior of the restaurant is nothing short of beautiful. The service is as elegant as the interior decor. On previous occasions the food has been very good. On this occasion however the food was well below par. Also much of what had previously been... More

My colleague and I were in Gent to collaborate with some academic colleagues. Because most of our evenings were to ourselves, and both of us are adventurous foodies, we decided to explore local favorite restaurants. We knew to stay away from the bars and bistros at the main squares, but were open to all possibilities. After noting that the House... More

Visited this restaurant as part of a group of 25 following the recommendation of colleagues. The experience was a big disappointment. Food was edible but not to the standard we were expecting. Presentation was poor with the whole group receiving the same food but presented very differently from plate to plate. We had duck and the conclusion from most was... More

Have eaten at this restaurant twice now and the menu always looks appealing. The wine list is also quite broad and tailored to the food. The staff are well versed on the menu and always on hand/attentative. Never had a bad experience and would highly recommend this restaurant. The decor is lush and quite a refreshing experience.

We spent an evening at this restaurant. We arrived at 8. Our main course was served at 10.40! Even though the food was certainly good, the restaurant cannot deliver the type of service that you expect from a restaurant with prices that suggest it is a high end restaurant. Too bad.

I thought I was sacrificing quality for the excellent location of this restaurant right on the canal. I was mistaken as the food and service were really excellent. I ordered a traditional Belgian Eel dish which came from the mother of the head chef. The eel was served in a cast iron pot in a wonderful green sauce which easily... More
