One of the best restaurants in Gent.

Very good service, and very good food! Everything is prepared with the utmost eye for detail.

“Perfect for foodies!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

This is the place I went to Belgium for.
We went to Volta for Sat lunch and it was AMAZING!
We had a 3-course menu with wine and water which cost us about 80EURO.
It was worth every cent.

Loved it and wish we had such places in London...

“Disappointing service, make sure you book at the right time!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

I have marked this down as average as I was actually unable to try the food but was very disappointed by their service.

After muddling our way through the online booking system, we managed to book a table for 2pm (you can book between 12 and 2). On arriving at the restaurant we were seated at a table on the other side of a small road, not the best place to enjoy a nice meal, and told that they had stopped serving food and we could only have the main from the set lunch menu (not all the other add-ons it should have come with).

From reading all the good things about it in newspapers we were very disappointed that we were unable to have any choice in our food. It seemed surprising and very off that we could book but not be served food at that time. They need to fix it! Be careful when booking and make sure to select a time when the kitchen is open.
