“Amazing wafels!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

My friends recommended this place as best wafels in Ghent and it is quite true. Big, delicious wafels, very friendly staff, marvelous interiour, make sure you have an extra look on it!

Tea is served with tea pots which I love and not just in cups.
Good job!

“Nice lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

My family and I had a quick lunch before leaving town on 25/12. The dishes were very much pleasant surprises. The house specialty of eel in green sauce simply changed my impression of westerners' treatment of the tricky fish. The basil and spinach based sauce did the wonderful job of getting rid of the earthy smell of the fish without overdoing it. The other dishes were very nice too. Shame that we were too early for their waffle hour.

“Too expensive and busy but the quality is good.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

Went there on a Saturday afternoon. It was very busy and we had to wait for a table. Once we had the table the service was very quick, too quick. Looks like that they want to serve you very fast so you can also leave very fast. THe waffle and pan cake was very good but way to expensive. We where with 2 adults and 2 children and we paid around 50 euro.

“Amazing Waffles”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

We went there for an early afternoon Waffle.
We weren't disapointed, the Waffles are huge, very generously topped with fruits, whipped cream or chocolate...
The waffle itself is amazing : everything you could except : light, delicious, warm, crispy, tasty ...
The whipped cream is also a blast.
The price are a little bit high but it's well worth it.
Staff is great too.

“Best waffle ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

I visited Ghent, Belgium in October and Max at been recommended to me. I'm so glad I went there! I had a delicious waffle with powdered sugar and fresh strawberries and a wonderful cafe mocha. It was the best waffle I have ever had in my life. The service is great and the atmosphere is quaint and special. When in Ghent, make sure you do not miss this place!
