High end brasserie restaurant located in the heart of historic Ghent in a somewhat secludedly located but unique old warehouse style building, off the main shopping street and near the famous Ghent guild houses on Graslei. Daily market fresh menu. In the season, try the oyster bar. Advance reservations highly recommended. A trendy place to be in Ghent for locals... More

In the past this was one of my favorite restaurants in Ghent. Do not visit Ghent very often anymore, so went back after some 10 years. Nice surprise: it did not change. The interior is still the same (warehouse style), friendly and efficient waiters and the FOOD! Still awesome. Great choices. Try the oysters from their oyster bar. Delicious. In... More

Nice place with nice waiter. Nice place to eat, and great wines. Somehow hidden in the centre of Gent but value for money.

We were lucky enough to get a table without a reservation and thoroughly enjoyed our experience and the food. The building is very unique, the service was wonderful and the food exceptional. The oysters were great and they offered perfect wine pairings for each course. (We had the excellent wild boar and guinea fowl mains, wow!). The waiter and bartender... More

Pakhuis did not disappoint! We read about all the reviews and decided to have lunch there. The restaurant is located in a small ally; use to be an old warehouse. The setting is great with a huge bar and open area with two floors. My husband had mussels, which were delicious and I had a salad.The chef used top quality... More

The food was awesomely prepared we did call for a reservation, although it wasn't packed, the noise was not bad but maybe because it wasn't full. I had read it was a Brewery so I wasn't expecting a romantic dinner but the quality and finish was excellent. The fixed menu was a very good value.

A great place to eat with a (business) groep or a groep of friends, but not so romantic voor a couple. It is a bit noisy and pricy. I wouldn't go there with (young)kids.

As others have mentioned the restaurant is visually striking. It is located in an old warehouse with lots of metal. If anything, it can be loud if it is full due to the size of the dining area. We sat downstairs behind the bar and had a great server who was very attentive. The food is excellent as is the... More

Superb venue, beautifully factory conversion. Just went for a drink, but this was a good mix between casual and formal. Great service from formally dressed staff. Buzzy atmosphere. Menu looked good and will try a meal on a return visit.
