Bone and chateau brand all of which have been of the finest quality. The wine is also very resonable. For a starter cheese croquettes, main steak and wine and coffee it was roughly 30... More

Although I live in Ghent, I had never been to Du Progrès until tonight. Neither was I aware of their very high ranking on TA. I do understand why they deserve this ranking though: the service is friendly, dinner is served quickly, the ingredients are of good quality, food tastes genuinely good. I couldn't mention anything negative. I had sole... More

We ate here on Friday night, most of us had steaks of various descriptions all were a really good size well cooked and very tasty. The sauce on the steaks was also delicious. The service was friendly and prompt and we thought the meal was great value. The atmosphere inside was nice, we were going to sit outside but the... More

De Progress is a nice place at one of the main squares in Ghent. It looks nice from the inside, has a good menu. I had the Steak James Bond, it's with a special pepper sauce. Loved it. Staff wasn't that friendly... Sadly.

We sat outside (bit hot inside) and had a lovely steak with sauce, no fatty bits with nothing left on my plate! Definitely recommend this place, busy but worth it. I booked online beforehand and so maybe do that, especially at weekends and when the Ghent Festival is on!

Amazing tartar (it was also my first one). Very good flavours, the fries was also good and the salad was fresh and beautifully composed. Amazing lunch on a rainy day! Oh, and the soup was free! On a rainy day, a mushrooms soup on a place like this, it was perfect.

We visited this restaurant at one of the rainy august day. We were 4 adults and one child. Each if us has eaten very tasty and fresh made meal. The waiters are very helpful and nice. A dessert was absolutely wonderful - chocolate mousse with whipped cream is a thing you MUST try!

We had not booked a table so the only options on a night of looking for a good restaurant was to wait for and take an outside table among the smokers. We have not noticed smoking as a problem in Ghent, but Du Progress seemed to have attracted all the smokers to its outside tables. Oh well, we wanted to... More

Went to Du Progres based on numerous positive reviews on tripadvisor, and wasn't disappointed. As it is located on the main square and It was lovely sunny midsummer's evening when I went, the outside area was very busy and made for a great setting. Considering how busy it was, service was not too slow, and the staff were pleasant enough.... More

Four of us went here for lunch during the Ghent Music Festival. No reservations, but we were able to get a nice table inside. The service was wonderful. Friendly welcoming staff who paid attention to our needs and provided great service. We all had the Flemish Stew with a combo of beer and wine for drinks. The house wine was... More
