Great place to have relaxed and informal diner with great food.

We went on a saturday-evening. As this restaurant is a bit out of the tourist area, you can really sit down and relax all evening. The surprise menu of the chef really pleased us including the wines.

Make a reservation because if they are not expecting you, the kitchen may close. The food was very very good. I had eaten here a couple of years ago and returned and was not disappointed in the least. I had sweetbreads which are not to be found on many menus, and require some expertise to prepare. Theirs were the best... More

Ghent seems to be making a habit of this sort of venue, privately owned, well trained chefs and carefully chosen and well balanced menus The croquettes which is a simple starter but easy to get wrong were perfect, I would have had them as a main course, but the steak was temtping and again, cooked to perfection Limited menu, personal...

I never knew that in Gent you would find such a refined and amazing restaurant. We had the surprise diner and I can recommend it to everyone with a fine taste for food. The surprise menu was a surprise from the beginning to the end. Fine, fresh food, excellent service, with a smile and a joke every now and then.... More

Faim fatale is a very nice restaurant, fine-dining, in a nice atmosphere. The food is refined and the wine is excellent. It is one of the best restaurants in that part of town. It is located not to far from the center of Ghent and just next to the Zuid, where you have a large underground parking place.

We visited this restaurant with some business colleagues. The surprise menu was recommended to us and we went with that. The four courses were all pretty good, if not spectacular, although my best memory was the Orval trappiste beer we drank with the starters. One of my colleagues went for a wagyu beef carpaccio and a large steak, which seemed... More

Walked in general direction of centre from my hotel to find a restaurant, and I walked past Faim Fatal, which was mentioned in Tripadvisor and my hotel guide as a reasonable choice. Not finding anything else nearby I went in to try. As it was Tuesday, it was very quiet. The waiter had to laugh when I asked which table,... More

We arrived without a reservation but got a table (I think we were lucky on a Friday evening) and chose the 'mystery menu' with accompanying wines. The service was first class and food superb; four courses, each one beautifully produced and presented with a wine that complemented it very well. I was rather surprised that all the wines were white... More
