Unique, exquisite, unforgetable!

I am so pleased I didn't really research De Gouden Klok before going. I've had the privilege to dine in some special places in Ghent (Flemish cuisine is a well-kept secret!) yet everything about this place was surprising. Quirky yet without gimmicks - a perfect showcase for what the chef does best... read more

One of the table guests told us "you can really surprise a natural born Ghent-inhabitant with this restaurant". That summarizes this excellent restaurant. Run by an Italian chef, you do not look at you menu card, you just ask the chef what he recommends. Agree with his suggestions and you will be overloaded with magnificent courses. His specialty is duck... More

An amazing restaurant, with an ideal location easy to reach nearby Gent sint-Pieters station, has its own parking, and a breath taking Garding. The food the service will add to your memory an unforgetable experience, that is the reason that I keep comming to the Gouden Klok often.

The menu includes seafood such as salmon and lobster. The inside of the building is extraordinary, with hand painted tile walls, white linens, dark wood and soft lighting. There is also a quiet garden... More
