Solid meal in Ghent

We were in Ghent for two nights after 4 nights in Paris. Although this isn't "authentic Belgium" fare, this was a great meal. We wanted fresh tasting Mediterranean food and this place nailed it (we ate here two nights). This won't be the best meal you've ever had but it is GOOD, fresh, great... read more

I have been here twice in the past few months (once dinner in January, once lunch in May), on visits to Ghent. The personnel is very friendly, the service is good. You always get bread and a platter of olives, roasted peppers to start. The portions are good. The food is delicious. You can't expect a lamb stew not to... More

Great Turkish food for a reasonable price. Big portions, will definitely not leave hungry. De plateau van de chef a great choice for those wanting to try everything, depends on your eating habits, but normally 2 people will have leftovers. Service is good, but once they completely confused and miscalculated our bill, and did not correct it right, even after... More

Food was great; very tasty, great price and big portions. I would not say it is romantic but definitely a great place to have a meal.

We had heard that Ankara was a popular Turkish restaurant in our neighborhood, and we'd tried but failed to get in without a reservation a few weeks ago. Tonight we tried again and got a table. We were both pretty disappointed with the whole experience. We can't fault them for not speaking English, since we were in Belgium -- but... More

Not 5 stars as this was not “one of the best meals ever” but surely the best Turkish cuisine I tasted this side of Istanbul. The chefs platter for 2 is a HUGE mezze of maybe 20 different foods all tasty and well cooked. Friendly and efficient service.

I've been here several times over the last few months! :) It's good for families, couples and big groups. The servings are generous and the prices more than reasonable. The wait staff are very friendly and attentive. I highly recommend the Eggplant and Lamb Tagine - OMG to die for! Their koftas are also delicious. Make sure you book in... More

it was pretty good food, we ordered the chefs platter and it was really big. Actually you could eat it with 3. For the rest they are also child friendly. A great place if you want to go for nice food without feeling rushed and being too fancy

Went here on a sunday evening and it was still busy with a nice atmoshpere. Staff very attentive to start with (but became more difficult to find as the evening went on). Shared mezze was nice enough, but really nothing special - the calamare and borek were both clearly from a freezer bag and not made freshly. The various dips... More
