Friendly and fast service! Food was good but not extraordinary. If u would be in the neighborhood I would go back there! We went there Tuesdays and it was pretty crowded, so booking is necessary.

Ate here on a Thursday night after booking online. The restaurant filled up fast so glad we booked. Soup starter was a flavoursome consommé and great value. We shared a chateaubriand, perfectly cooked (rare) with lovely veg/chips and I highly recommend the James Bond sauce. The only reason it gets a 4 rather than 5 star rating is that we... More

Stumbled upon Du Progress by accident during our first visit to Ghent. Steak was superb. Allowed waiter Jorgen to choose the beers and he got it spot on. Would recommend this to anyone visiting this beautiful city.

We were staying at nearby Harmony Hotel (excellent also) and asked them for their recommendations for local 'Gent' (not touristy) places to eat. Du Progres was one of them. After a long day of driving, we wanted to experience good quality 'local' food in a nice environment. We had it all in spades! The restaurant and everything about it was... More

this reasonably priced restaurant is popular so make a reservation. Lots of different sauces to accompany your steak. Unlimited Belgium fries with each entree and they are so good! Service is excellent

We were so impressed we visited 3 times in a week. Tried fillet steak, spaghetti bolognaise, pigs cheek stew, chateaubriand........ all wonderful. Service was excellent, and a really good atmosphere for quite a big place. Prices very reasonable for the quality of food, we were very happy customers. Definitely recommend booking, to avoid disappointment.

4 of us came here on the two nights when we stayed in Ghent. The service is fantastic. The first night our waiter was Peter and the second time Jorgen. Each night we were made to feel really welcome, we were also given the best table! We booked each time as the place gets busy, but only booked a few... More

Very affordable steak house in the city center of Gent. The service was excellent if not perfect! After visiting this place twice, I recommend to eat one of the steaks (ossehaas, filet pur, côte à l'os, ...) because they are probably the best in town. The french fries you get and the salad you get are also of great quality.... More
