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.

The were about 30 of us. We had a set menu -starters (not sure what they were but healthy and fresh), main course of lamb and rice was well done, and dessert was excellent. The beer and wine was also very good. Service was good. The building is a reworked warehouse and well done.

This seems to be the 'in' place, full of locals and some tourists on a Monday night. The food was very good, especially the steak and desserts. The service was excellent. Would go back when next in Ghent

My husband had been a few times and wanted to return to celebrate his birthday, I 've been twice and have always been disappointed. So we went with our children on a friday night anyway, the food took ages to come, so long that we didn't have to pay for the wine or water and once we had paid the... More

Beautiful architecture, great service, good food, reasonably priced, perfect location in the city centre. Just pay this restaurant a visit when you're staying in Ghent. You won't regret it!
