Du progres is a fun spot to visit in the middle of the town, it can be very crowdy, but when you get your food in front of you, bon appetit! Very tasty! Ow, and try the cocktail Maison, very delicious!

We visited this restaurant at dinner time. A table or two were vacant, the rest was occupied. It means the place is renowned. Our order consisted of some salads, main courses and draught beer. Everything was perfect. Though the restaurant was crowded, our waiter served us pretty quick.

Had a nice meal here sitting outside on a lovely warm evening. The food was mainly good. My husband had the fillet steak which he liked although admitted it wasn't the most tender piece of meat he had eaten. I had the salmon which was lovely although the accompanying chips tasted as though they had been lying and weren't crisp... More

Ate here for dinner. Had the scampi in garlic sauce starter and the steak main. Both were well cooked and presented and the service was very efficient. The steak was not the finest or tenderest cut I've ever had but it was acceptable for the price. I would go again and would recommend it to anyone.

We visited again on a brief stop in Ghent on our return from a trip to Holland. We'd sacrificed eating out during our time in the Netherlands in anticipation of our booking at Du Progress and weren't disappointed. Yet again... Fantastic service, excellent beers & house wines (slighlty differing white from previously, I certainly prefer this!). Great salad and amazing... More

Booked in advance, and this was probably a good idea, considering how many locals opt to visit for lunch. This place is in a very busy square, great for people watching if you're outside, but we requested a window seat inside, as we're not keen on smokers whilst we eat. The wait staff were wonderful; attentive, but not overly so,... More

Nice meal. Service a bit slow but it was heaving oN a Saturday night. Food good and good value too. Seemed to be primarily a place for steaks and meat. Very traditional.
