One of the best meals I've had anywhere. The meal began with a selection of breads and interesting butters, moving on to dainty little appetisers including meringue with iced beetroot. We only ordered a main course, and when the turbot arrived, we weren't disappointed. Unable to resist a pudding, I had a confection of blueberries, chocolate, tuilles, shards of white... More

A very romantic tête-à-tête, with delicious food, and this in a very nice building located in the most beautiful area of the most beautful town of Belgium... not interested? So don't go to this restaurant because that is what you will get. But if it sounds fun to you : You will love it. Your partner / friends / family... More

Not my first time here, nor my last. I've always enjoyed the Allegro Moderato for the past years. A very relaxing atmosphere (it's a little piece of Versailles in Ghent after all), original preparation and especially super friendly service is what keeps me coming back for more. Went there last Saturday and everything was succulent. Just a little minor remark... More

Great service - really pleasant on telephone - food absolutely superb - especially the fish - Lynne wife is still dreaming of both your grey prawns (amuse bouche) and the main course (sole?) which she thinks is the freshest fish she's ever eaten. My risotto was full of autumn tastes - gorgeous mushrooms and delicious root sauces. The ambiance in... More

I've been meaning to write this review ever since having a wonderful lunch at this restaurant in the summer. We happened across it while looking for a canalside restaurant and couldn't believe our good luck. The restaurant is very traditionally beautiful and upmarket inside, and also has tables outside with wonderful views over the canal and surrounding houses and church.... More

We went for lunch in this restaurant, but by the amount of candles everywhere, it must be very romantic in the evening. Delicious food, good service, very nice location.

By which I mean that if you love to be in the middle of a touristic center (which can be crowded) being part of the ambiance related to such an environment, I can definetaly advise to go there. Food and service is good for sure. Dont hesitate about that. But, it is not the quite place to calm down and... More

First rate food, a bit pricey (we spent about €40 each including wine and tip), but definitely worth it. We loved the cod and watercress, and the tuna with avocado crème, eggplant caviar and lentils. Weather and space permitting, get a table on the canal and watch the world go by as you dine.
