We had an idyllic 'surprise' four course menu here which was stunning - the outdoor seating area was stylishly planted and a joy to sit in, the waiter and waitress charming and so helpful, and the rood was top notch - quite a find.

Arrived to a stylish restaurant and really liked the decor. We had booked over internet from UK and we received a prompt reply. First and I know many would say ..learn the language but most of Gent cafe's and restaurants didn't have the menu in English so we struggled with all the food and the same in this restaurant. I...

I didn't know what to expect as I was invited here by my neighbours. But I was disappointed. The kitchen has no inspiration, the waiter was rude and impolite and the price is too high for the little value you get.

Already went 4 times to this restaurant and the quality of the food, the presentation and taste is always wonderful. We had the 'surprise' menu, for each course there was eye for detail. Friendly service, good acoustics and enough space between the tables to have privacy during lunch/dinner.

We enjoyed our meal here very much. Fine dining with excellent amuse bouche treats. The waiter was good and helpful in answering our questions. However you may wish to check the menu as it is quite adventurous and perhaps not to everyone's taste [we loved it]. Also because it is not a huge restaurant, quite rightly the menu is not... More

I went to this very well located restaurant for an important business-lunch. The food was very inventive and the service perfect. Wines were up-scale and honestly priced. I plan to go back for non-business purposes but this first experience was great.

I had a wonderful meal in a nice setting. The restaurant was recommended by my hotel and the food was very, very good. And somewhat different. I had a parsnip puree as part of an appetizer that was one of the best things I have ever eaten - perfectly smooth and not too strong tasting (for those who are not... More

Had dinner on saturday night June 8 2013. We were greated in a very friendly, laid back, yet professional way. The restaurant looks cozy, warm, you feel right at ease. No fancy designs, no funky interiors, no weird architectural escapades. Great accoustics. Choice on the menu is limited, but that's not such a big deal. We went for the surprise... More

This restaurant is one of my favorites in Ghent and I must admit that the excellent and warm service provided by Bert, one of the owners, is one of the reasons. I simple like being waited on with a smile and I like to have a chat most of the time. But on to the food. I told the chef,... More

Three of us opted for the Chef's Suggestion menu, one ordered a la carte, all was excellent, with brilliant service from the entertaining and very helpful waiter, a quirky and characterful dining room, great atmosphere and above all, excellent food (and Champagne!)!. Highly recommended.
