Hof Van Cleve is supposedly the best restaurant in Belgium and if it isn't the best then it is probably the most expensive one... We booked lunch on a Saturday with a small group of friends. Booking was easy and can be done maximum 3 months in advance. A few weeks before the visit we had to select the menu.... More

I went with my husband and a friend for dinner during 5he week. The reservation was made weeks in advance. The restaurant is in an old farm building which gives a really original and cozy feeling. But at the same time you have the most prepared staff you can imagine. The full dinner with 6 courses, if i recall correctly,... More

We expected the best and we got it. It really deserves the three stars they have. Delicious menu, perfect wines and a high class service. We loved it and we definetly come back. Of course, like for every pleasure in life, the price was accordingly.

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
