Good food, great ambience, and a perfect central location

Have been there several times for business dinners in groups of up to 10. Reservation is recommended, but at times it worked without, and maybe a bit of waiting, and time for a drink at the bar. The restaurant is a refurbished warehouse, with a lot of open space and a nice kind of balcony on the... read more

After foolishly trying to enter through the fake revolving door and being told by the waiter to go around the back, I was pleasantly surpised to see a very nice (busy) terrence leading to a beauitiful dinning room. We ordered the summer seafood selection, shrips, oysters, prawns, crab and welks - should have paid more attention to the menu, but... More

outside on the terrace on a hot summer's night or inside with the exceptional architecture, you will always be surprised. Friendly staff, excellent food, a large choice of wines (also by the glass).

Restaurant located in a former building with a friendly atmosphere, cheerful and inviting. I had excellent fish, starting with oysters and continuing with an excellent grilled squid served with a delicious pasta. You have a plenty of choice of drinks looking to the long list of wines or beers.

It's a shame the food here did not match the surroundings. I had the grilled salmon which was delicious but the mussels we ordered were the worst we had tasted. The service is chaotic to say the least. I would have liked a dessert but wasn't prepared to wait. The restaurant is clearly not managed well, I felt sorry for... More

Are dinner here. Lovely building and classy set up, hence very busy. Ordered the mussels Asian style and the salmon. No starter. The salmon was delicious however my mussels were overcooked and blown. I told the waiter and after consultation they were removed and another half portion offered as replacement which in truth were only marginally better, but I soldiered... More

Pkhuis is one of the best restaurants in Gent. They have delicious contemporary food with Belgian roots. I was there for several times, but the quality was always high, the service always kind, and I find the interior very special. Although it is a big restaurant you don't feel to be crowded, in the contrary: you can enjoy the colorfulness... More

My husband and I visited Ghent in early July. Since this was our only stop in Belgium we were interested in typical food and immediately thought of mussels and fries. Our walking tour guide said that the only places that would be serving mussels in July -- the wrong time of the year -- would be tourist places with over-priced... More
