What to say... This restaurant and it's staff are near to perfect. Ever dish is like a piece of art and tastes divine. Being vegetarians ourselves we had the 7 course vegetarian option. This was the best meal I ever had, full stop ! Expensive, but worth every cent, go there you won,t regret.

We were five couples at this dinner in the countryside west of Ghent, Belgium. Two physicians organized the dinner for fellow foreign physicians and their wives. Let me be clear. My wife and I have eaten in at least one third of all the three star restaurants in France and many of the two and one star ones as well.... More

Hof van Cleve deserves all three of its Michelen stars, and maybe a half star more. I've eaten here three times and each has been simply one of the very best meals I have had in my life. Since I cannot eat fish or shellfish, I've eaten their 7 and 10 course meals (add another 5-6 amuse-bouche dishes to the... More

I am Belgian but left 18 years ago. It has long been a dream to eat at a 3* Michelin and a Belgian one preferably. This year my husband and I decided to just book and go and invite my mum along. We had booked for lunch and chose the 5 course menu for 195€. We didn't drink wine so... More

We had dinner in late June on a Wednesday evening. We had researched this restaurant and made the drive from Gent just to eat here. The staff in the front of the house treated us very well, starting with the loaner eye glasses for somebody who left his back at the hotel. Serge, Christophe, Mathieu and Mattias and even the...

Have visited lots of high ranked and Michelin starred restaurants expectations were high. We had the largest menu (7 courses) with the wines. When you get the bill and the first thing you think : was it worth that kind of money (over 400 Euros a person) and you think no, something is wrong. I think I was most of... More

We ate there two times, and this time was a week after we had eten in el celler de can roca, which is more special, more inventive, but hof van cleve is simply better! the tastes you get are the finest you can imagine, and the bill to pay sadly also the highest. Can't wait to go back. So proud... More

We recently dined at Hof van Cleve in mid May. The setting is wonderful and everything from the greeting at the door, the table, the attention to detail of the serving staff and sommelier was top notch. Not only was the cuisine very innovative but the freshest of ingredients came together in wonderful harmony on the plates. We especially loved... More

The restaurant is out of the way for anyone who does not drive, but it is well worth a visit. The food is sophisticated but down to earth and the service is good. If you are in Flanders anyway, I would suggest taking a tour.
