I thought we were going to have a problem in this restaurant, as the menu is not huge, and my wife doesn't eat fish or steak (both very popular in Belgium!) However after explaining this to the waiter, and asking if she could order the chicken from the lunchtime menu, he said he would "ask the chef"... I was expecting... More

Most of the TripAdvisor photos don't do this restaurant justice. Sophisticated, romantic ambiance, yet relaxed and not at all stuffy. Food exceeded expectations too, with just one of many highlights being the wasabi sorbet: a subtle, delicious accompaniment to salmon starter. A real gem this place, with fine dining quality allied to pretty reasonable prices.

We went there with my boyfriend on a Saturday night and we both had the beef - gooseliver, which was great. The service was excellent, they brought us several appetizers in the beginning and the wine great as well. The waiters were very kind, helpful and friendly and the atmosphere classy and elegant. Not cheap but for sure worth its... More

We were only in Ghent for 2 nights and it was just after the New Years holiday so they were not open until our last lunchtime meal. Our waiter warned us that they only had the fixed price lunch available, but who cares, it was fantastic. Beautiful restored mansion that the locals definitely know about. Do yourself a favor and...

Set in an elegant guild house, Allegro offers fine dining in an excellent location. We walked through the central area looking for a lunch spot. All of the prix-fix menus were €17 +, so we decided to see if Allegro was open. Thankfully, it was and we had the best meal on our Belgium trip for €25 each. Lovely presentation... More

On 15 minutes notice arrived on a Tuesday evening in December with 10 colleagues, growing eventually to a party of 13 at Allegro Moderato. The servers instantly set up a table for all of us, adding a table as two more friends arrived. We selected the 5 course menu and with the amuse bouche and wines recommended by the maitre... More

Well, anyone who follows my reviews may now know that I am a massive foodie!!! This place is fine dining with A LOT of extras!!!! We arrived to a very understated exterior and were greeted and seated immediately with a warm friendly smile. The ambience was french chic, nothing shabby, warm and rather romantic! There were 6 of us so... More

Booked this restaurant before visiting Ghent on trip advisor recommendations so when we visited the outside of the building was covered in scaffolding and the view looking in was a bit of a let down,although the location is excellent next to the canal, but walked inside the restaurant and straight away thought yes yes yes this is quality and full...
