We were a party of 15, from various countries, different dietary restrictions, and with two children. Because of our size we had a pre-set menu for all. When the waiter, Peter V. realized that some in the party could not eat a particular dish, he quickly served an alternative without calling any attention to the guest or the issue at... More

On the Korenlei, pretty outside terrace, inside decorated stylish. Nice menu with modern and classic dishes, all well prepared. Great wine list. Nice casual atmosphere.

The restaurant is located in the city center with many tourists so I thought this place would be just average. What we found was a really fantastic restaurant with excellent food and a very comfortable ambiance. It was very charming. The service was great and we really enjoyed the whole dining experience.

I had lunch At Allegro Moderato with two colleagues last Saturday: each of us had a different lunch menu but all of us were greatly satisfied with the quality/price ratio. I intent to repeat this positive experience next time I am in Gent.

We decided to have lunch at Allegro Moderato following nice reviews, but with a touch of caution. We were nicely surprised by the presentation and the quality of the meal. We just had a standard lunch menu, still it was quite elaborate, very tasty, abundant, and at a reasonable price. Add to this a bottle of excellent wine - and... More

The great reviews on tripadvisor made us come here and we were certainly not disappointed. We were able to sit on the lovely terrace with, i suppose, the best view in Gent. Blankets are available for those chilly evenings. We had the degustation menu that featured fish, oxtail soup and tarbot. All excellent dishes, very tasty and beautifully presented. The... More

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
