Great Setting

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

We sat in a large circle and all shared a beer and good stories to go with it. The stadium. Then led us to out tables for a great meal. If... More

We had lunch at this restaurant (we had booked which was good because it is a very popular place especially during the Light Show). The waiters and the staff were very friendly and the choice of food was very good - I am vegetarian and found dishes that I liked very much - I loved that the menu suggests what... More

Great setting, an old market hall.......waiters were efficient and friendly. Good wine, great beers as you would expect in Belgian but my beef carpaccio was stunning!!! A must for lunch/ dinner or just a beer, around the corner from the Golden Arches!!!!

having spent a week in Ghent on business, this was the best of all restaurants I had eaten in. Food was top class, no complaints. Great relaxed atmosphere and good service. Well worth it.
