Waiter gave good advice re cooking of steak and it was delivered to table as requested. Lovely ambience and full house so book on line in advance as we did. We would... read more

We selected to have dinner at Du Progrès based on the good reviews posted on Tripadvisor. You can easily book a table online, and you should. The place is popular and situated in a very central location in the historic center of Ghent. When we got in, there were many patrons already, but we were seated right away. The entire... More

Great food and excellent service! Try the James Bond steak, it was delicious. My wife had the salmon with béarnaise sauce, I was excellent too. Service close to perfect! The place is very good also. Right in the center.

We've visited Du Progres for my father's birthday. In the past we were frequent customers but it was a long time ago due to the fast service (a whole dinner in half an hour and back outside). That time is over! The waiter was very friendly and the food was excellent. The price - quality is still an added value... More

We have been to Gent several times for a weekend get away and by chance we stumbled across Du Progress. The staff are very welcoming and accommodating. The food is exceptional, we ordered various items from the menu (fish, chicken and steaks) and it was wonderful. I can only comment on the chicken with mushroom sauce and it sounds basic... More

A fantastic choice right in the center of Ghent and I can't wait to eat here during my next visit to the city. We ate inside, in a roomy and beautifully decorated dining area with a modern, open fireplace. The leek soup was piping hot and very delicious. We also got some grey bread with butter and peanuts with our... More

One of the best brasseries in town. Typical Belgian style dishes. Operated by the same family since several generations. Moderated priced. Unique location on Korenmarkt, the main square in downtown close to Graslei and the historical center. Excellent for meeting locals. Outside dining weather permitting. Reservations recommended.

We chose this restaurant by chance, purely based on the fact that it looked popular. And now we know why it is so popular - delicious food, efficient, friendly service and it doesn't break the bank. It turns out we were lucky to get a table - they were turning people away, so it may pay to make a reservation.

A staple restaurant in Ghent, known for its excellent price/quality of the beef dishes. Interesting sauces and good service.
