This restaurant has a very good reputation in Gent.
We booked a table at 9pm during the Gentse Feesten.
The restaurant was almost full.
Located in a historic house the old area of the restaurant feels a bit old and rustic, a bit more chaotic, medieval and a bit cramped, the newer part has more light, more space and has a classic yet modern touch , both are lovely, I prefered the latter. The atmosphere is distinguished and serene, just the way Flemish people like it.
The hostess is great. The menu is nicely explained and you feel welcome. We took the 47 euro 3 course meal with champagne and amuse. The champagne was very dry with a lot of flavour that didn't linger in your mouth too long. Very delicious. The amuse had catfish, which is very tasty the way they prepare it. (I would definately recommend the amuse) The tarbot on a bed of green beans with an amazing rosemary sauce was utterly delicious. The Springbok and Quail in a light tarragan sauce was perfect. Suckling meat, perfectly prepated (a bit too much salt on the quail, but that's a rather personal taste) finnished off with cauliflower and sundried tomatoes and a very unique tasting tarragon sauce.
The Petit Clos red from New Zealand (39 eur) was brilliant.
This is still one of the better restaurants in Ghent, located in a wonderful part of town.
When our friends joined us while we were finnishing a delicious Creme Brulee, staff were very helpfull to pull up 2 extra chairs so we could finnish our deserts and they could enjoy the tasty white house wine.
