Nice and staff is clear We serve slow food

Nice Resturant and the senior captain is nice and so clear, a clear sign on the Resturant facade stating that "slow food". So don't try to disturb or push him. But they serve nice fish, but no Halal food "meat and chicken" is served.

Five of us rolled up without reservation early on a busy Saturday evening, were told there was a table available till 9 pm and in fact that was time enough for three unhurried courses and we were done by 8.50. Service was friendly and efficient; we didn't feel we were being rushed. Open-plan layout on two floors of a converted... More

We called on recommendation from a friend who lives and works in Ghent. We decided to take a day trip from Brusells, and boy, am I glad we did. The restaurant is a converted warehouse on the waterfront, and difficult to find down a small side alley. Take the tram to Korenmarkt, and it's on the alleyway behind McDonalds. We... More

This converted building is probably the best looking restaurant we have ever set foot in and so fitting for a special birthday. If only the food and service matched the looks but sadly, and disappointingly so, both food and service were poor. The menu is different and inventive but the shrimp bisque was just average; the swede soup was bland... More

We enjoyed a healthy, tasty lunch in this unique setting. This converted warehouse has exceptional design motifs. My meal was entirely from food raised on the restaurant's farm. Healthy and delicious.

Do you expect traditional restaurant? Do NOT go there! You are looking for something special? GO THERE!! It is a totally different place to have lunch or dinner, great food, friendly staff, in the centre of town but phone beforehand or there will be no seat for you. Have a great meal!

I've been to Pakhuis several times and it is always top notch. It's great for a business dinner or a nice romantic outing. Since I was traveling over Valentines, my wife and I went out last night for a romantic dinner and I opted for the Bresse Chicken.... and wow, I have never had such amazing chicken before. I have...

We visited this restaurant a few months ago and both ordered the raw beaf tartar. The taste was rather strange and the day after we knew why. We both were sick, we were indigested of eating this tartar. We will never visit this restaurant again.

I had been here before, but with a large group of colleagues. This time we were eight, which was more reasonable. I had the steak tartare, which was nice but could have used more seasoning. This was easy to fix, of course. The portion was nice too. We drank a bottle of red wine. This was their house wine, which... More
