I visited the Pakhuis with an associate last summer. The hostess was firm and abrupt, and my associate was put off but I encouraged him to sit and have a beer while they readied our table, which they said would be an hour. They brought us menus and asked us to order even though they told us we could not... More

We had dinner here on a warm summer evening, and opted to sit outside. The outside seating is on an urban alleyway, currently near a construction area, so the atmosphere was not very special. However, the beautiful dishes and the friendly welcoming server compensated. That said, the restaurant seems to be understaffed as our server seemed to be working more... More

When in Ghent, it's usually our meeting point with friends and family at the bar. Little bit pricy but the decor is worth it. Old warehouse that was converted in a restaurant.

The food was good and sitting outside on a warm summer evening was great! The wines paired with the dishes were perfect matches, however I must sat the menu's are a bit pricey for the city....however you do get what you pay for! Definitely recommend this place.

The food was average, but nothing special. They were very crowded and wait staff was not very responsive. Disappointed as it came highly recommended.

We tried the Belga Queen but the kitchen was closing so they referred us to the Pakhuis. The staff was very kind and accommodating. The food took a while to arrive but it was worth the wait: fresh, tasty and reasonably priced. Thanks for accomodating a very late service! Wife and daughter were delighted

Steak limousin was just OK. Must have taken some time after it was prepared to be served and wasn't really all that warm by the time it came. Bacon served with vegetables was limp, and the vegetables were cold. Quiche and salad were very good. Nice atmosphere, a bit loud. Waiter inattentive. Note to american clients - sign up front...

I've been to this restaurant several times over the years. I was in Ghent for 5 days last week and two of the nights I had dinner in this restaurant. That's how good it is! The interior is lovely too with a great atmosphere. Everything I've eaten has been top quality. Service is excellent too. A must try! Remember to... More

Our local friend brought us here, and he has very good taste. We enjoyed the balcony overlooking the restaurant main floor. The boys had steaks, which they both told me were cooked to perfection. The service was excellent.
