Just Brilliant

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... read 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

I've just come back from a wonderful four night stay in Ghent. We dined in some excellent restaurants however this was by far the grandest & I'm not just talking about the building itself which is truly magnificent, right on the canals edge with beautiful views day and night. The food was delicious with a great menu. The staff were... More

Came here a couple years ago for my birthday and it was incredible. Did another overnight in Ghent and decided to try it again, this time with my 9yr son. They have a very small, expensive menu and no kids' menu or portions, so I don't recommend taking your children unless they're up for some interesting and excellent food. The... More

Location and service are exquisite. Get a window seat if you can and look out onto one of the loveliest old cityscapes in Europe. Food was terrific, although I wasn't so sure about the scallop carpaccio. But then, I think I may be going off carpaccio altogether. The wine was marvellous and the service - always so important - was... More

The room is elegant, the service attentive. But the food - we had hare - magnificent. It was tasty, but more than that, sophisticated. Beautiful meat and a rich rich sauce. I have dined in most places around the world and in recent years can only compare this for quality with the Fat Duck at Bray in England. What skill... More

Lunch menu 21.90. Three courses menu in a delicious environment (seems very luxurious). Tremendous quality/price ratio, considering that a course for dinner costs from 20-30euros. Go for lunch!

I was there with a group of 10. The service and the meal were excellent. I don't know about the price as I did not pick up the check but I suspect that it was high. The restaurant is located on a canal with excellent view of very classical, old architecture. I hope to return when I am in Ghent... More
