Good meal in a bustling spot

We had dinner at Parkhuis on a busy Saturday night. The food was quite good. The action in the restaurant is the star of the show. It is a busy bistro atmosphere with servers coming and going between tables and the kitchen. We had a very good dinner. The service was a bit slow and not excessively... read more

Coming from Dubai, I love to dine surrounded by beautiful interior decor and this place was a nice surprise in Ghent. We arrived without reservations in summer and quickly got a table. Service was good and attentive. Was thrilled to find a cigarette machine in the washroom area too. Food was great, although I dont remember what i had.

Got the hotel to book us here on a Friday night, and while it was busy the staff seemed to cope well, were very friendly and we had no problems being served. I had a steak frites and the wife had fish, both very good. We asked if we could share a cheese plate (usually a dessert) for a starter... More

This restaurant was advised by a local contact. We arrived without reservation, there was some space, but we got a time slot for our dinner, which was ok. Food, and service were excellent, the atmosphere was nice in the old building.

Lovely place. Busy (it was a Saturday night) but the staff were friendly and the place was not stuffy. We both had fish which was just great. Would recommend this place as a special night out.

We couldn't get into this restaurant for dinner on 2 separate occasions. We really wanted to go and so we booked lunch. And we're so glad we did. Fantastic staff who were very attentive but not overbearing. Great food. I went for Oysters and a knuckle of ham. I wasn't disappointed. A great setting. The bill was not outrageous despite... More

this old stock house is just a wonderful place to be, whether alone, as couple, with family or with friends. The mixed old and modern stylish architecture makes it to an amazing interior. The food is not the very best in Ghent, but good to very good. Anyway a great place to be.

Had dinner with some friends at this place, and was surprized by the looks of it (a posh warehouse with some art nouveau elements). Service was great, food was very okay (looked superb, tasted quite well). At these prices, however, my expectations are a little higher. Though everything was just fine, I prefer other restaurants in this area.
