Good for massive steaks including T-bones to share and good beer to wash it down. Central location for all bars and pubs.

For a busy restaurant on a nice summer evening the waiters were extremely efficient. We sat on an outside table and enjoyed our meal watching the world pass by. The starter of shrimp croquette maison was very tasty as was my tournedos steak with a superb "James Bond sauce" ( pepper and mushroom) BUT the fillet steak chosen by my... More

This was our favourite restaurant of the three we visited in Ghent. Despite having made a reservation we were told there was no room on the terrace which was a bit disappointing so we ate inside instead. The food was of the highest quality - prawns in garlic for starters and then we both had rump steaks which were really... More

We stopped at Du Progress twice in our 4 day visit to Ghent. First for drinks and second for drinks and dessert. Vanilla ice cream with caramel sauce. The wine and beer selections are very nice and the ice cream was incredible. Service is good, especially considering how busy they are.

Fortunately, on my second day in Gent I referred to trip advisor and visited this absolute gem. Very well decorated, very attentive and polite service, brilliant and very generous food. To top it off, extremely good value at about 40 euros for three course plus two non-alcoholic drinks

We had chateau briand, it was beautiful, the staff were helpful and friendly and it was just... More

Visited this 6 months ago for our anniversary, as my wife knows I like a good steak. And we weren't disappointed! Even though the setting is maybe a bit 'Bourgoisie Gantoise' - it's the kind of place where the waiter serves soup directly from the bowl onto you're plate, and some people wish to be served in French instead of...

Restaurant du progress offers classic Flemish dishes. Don’t expect high gastronomy, but decent and honest well prepared food. The interior is a little bit on the dark side, but there is a nice terrace facing a nice and busy square in the heart of the city. Service is quick and attentive. Good choice, also for families and groups.
