This is a beautiful little restaurant, but we stumbled upon it down a side street near Markt. The waiter attending to us spoke excellent English and was extremely friendly. There was a wide range of meals available and we were both very happy with our three course menus. The only negative was the lengthy waits for service, we didn't notice... More

Poor service, barely warm food, overpriced drinks. - Wrong beer was served. - Starter never came but was added to the bill. - Main courses did not arrive at the same time (we were not a big group, just two people) - The worst...

We went to this restaurant a week ago. The food tasted really good, especially the Flemish Stew, which was so tender you could cut it with a fork. Prices are not high and the service is good.The lady who attended us was nice and gentle. We would really love to come back to this restaurant on a next visit to... More

I contacted the Habit to make a reservation for 14. Pol and Ingrid responded quickly to my request and provided several fix price menus. They were very easy to work with and the food was delicious. We had the entire upstairs to ourselves. Staff was friendly and went out of their way to make sure everyone was enjoying themselves

Spent 10 days with my beautiful wife in Europe. Started in the city of Bruges, Belgium and after our second day of exploring this quaint medieval town we ventured out looking for dessert. We came across The Habit and after a quick scan of the menu we decided this was the place! Immediately upon entering, we were met by Ingrid... More

Friendly people, great décor, well cooked food with quirky titles. Really enjoyed the evening with a lovely host and hostess. Run Rabbit Run was simply delicious.

Two restaurants very close to each other, you need to book for both. We tried the Habit and it was fully booked up on the Friday night, very olde worlde inside. Prices for the food were about average for Ghent, the service wasn't that good. The food when it came was mixed for our party of four - the veggie... More
