We were two couples, went there for dinner (booked in advance, which is recommended). Some earlier reviews have mentioned poor service - we experienced nothing of that kind, rather the opposite: friendly and helpful. Servings are generous and the meat is well-cooked. Can fully recommend this restaurant. Total bill for 4 (main courses, desserts and drinks) around EUR 150 -... More

I've been to Du Progres a couple of times. Their steak "James Bond" is lean, well-prepared beef accompanied by a complex, flavorful sauce - cream, tarragon, peppercorns, and more. Superb. Their croquettes are very good, too.

We were keen to visit Du Progres after reading the Tripadvisor reviews and booked a table on-line a fortnight before our trip to Ghent as we were worried that Easter Holidays would have been busier than normal. Our table was booked for 9pm and the restaurant was busy but not full when we arrived. We took the advice of the... More

We had a lovely meal here, the only thing we encountered here and in fact everywhere in Europe is people smoking at outside tables so we chose to sit inside. This was a pity as the view onto the square is lovely.

As other reviewers said, you will definitely hear about Du Progres when staying in Ghent. So we booked reservations for dinner, and were very excited! The food was delicious...and the restaurant itself is very cute. The service was not great though....our first server actually just abandoned us, and we sat with no wine or food, or anyone coming over to... More

A fine little restaurant with a *HUGE* reputation. If you're staying in Gent, you'll hear about this place... I guess it's pretty popular with the locals, but I just didn't fall in love with it. Came here on a Friday afternoon during what can only be described as "off-peak" hours. Most restaurants in Gent are only open at select times,... More

The food here is great! I had steak with the 'James Bond' sauce - delicious! The service was quick and reasonably friendly. Always very busy so book ahead!

I tried to book a table at Le Progres twice before finally being able to do so - the restaurant was always fully booked! That's a good sign! I came by on a Thursday evening. We were welcomed in a friendly and polite manner, in Dutch, French and English. We had the t-bone for 2 which was really tasty and... More

We had a great dinner in this smart and friendly restaurant. The menu was quite traditional and our food was very tasty. Good value for money.

We were on a return visit to Ghent, having really liked it a couple of years ago. After seeing previous reviews, my wife booked a table for my birthday and got them to throw a free drink into the deal. On arrival, they'd kept us one the of best tables in the house. They pretended that they'd forgotten the free... More
