“travellers place with great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

not really cheap, but with great cocktails, nice food and a enjoyable place to sit and relax in the centre of ghent, its one of the best places to rest when visiting ghent. Done with Ghent? take one of the travelguides and dream the next trip, looking at the world-wide collection of travveling-crap.

“Lovely place, great atmosphere & tasty food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

Got a tip from a friend to go check out this place so went for dinner with some friends.

It's a really lovely place which calls itselfs a "travel bar", exotic objects from all over the world decorate the place, giving it a really warm atmosphere.

Started the evening with some mojito's, they were quite strong and nicely made. A good start of the evening!

We ordered 4 Mac Marrakesh's with some red house wine. The hamburgers with Arabic spiced meat, couscous and salade with olives, fèta-blocks, etc. was delicious. A very nice dish which wasn't expensive at all.

Having a look at the tables around us with other dishes, it's definitely a place to come visit again.

“I've had better ...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013 via mobile

The place was packed and we were send upstairs. Got a wobbly table and a broken chair. Food was ok, but if the menu says paprika's , you should at least find more on your plate than only one half. The brownies we ordered for dessert were dryer than a dessert, and weren't tasty at all ... The staff was also very rude and quite arrogant. Going home with the smell of food in your clothes.
You should only come to this place for the cocktails!

“Friendly place with good service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

The staff is really friendly. They enjoy travelling so the place is decorated with souvenirs from their trips. We arrived without reservation on a Saturday evening, the place was full and we had to spend 15 minutes at the bar enjoying the tap beers. The food is good and there is a good selection of vegetarian dishes.
