Searched and went to try the waterzooi which got rave reviews as thectraditional dish of Belgium. Dish was okay, nothing extraordinary. Service was slow but ine of the places which served tap water without blink of eye.

I expected a remodeled meathouse for different specialty shops but that wasn’t the case. It is a remodeled meathouse with a elongated restaurant inside made out of glass. At the back there’s a counter with local specialties like Roomers or Cuberdons. Cheaper than some of the other places we saw them. But weirdly these were some cheap (non local specialties) stuff in between like Guylian chocolates.

We are sorry to hear that your were disappointed. The Butchers' Hall is a promotional centre for East Flemish regional products, and this in a medieval building. We serve only products made in the province, and are unique in that concept. Hope to see you back and persuade you about our local story.

What a fantastic place to visit. Steeped in history and with a very good restaurant too. On our first evening we sat in the main hall enjoying beer and nibbles – tasting platter of cheese and cold meets which was lovely, and we were being warmed up by heaters as it was bitterly cold outside. Very friendly staff chatted to us about the history of the place and the fact that the hams hanging from the ceiling are actually real and will eventually be eaten. Next day we have missed lunch as most places shut around 2-3pm. and don’t reopen for dinner until 6-7pm. But the Butcher’s Hall stays open through the day and we were very lucky to be able to sample their lovely Ghent stew – waterzooi and amazing goats cheese salad. So happy that they actually serve food outside the regular restaurant hours for the tourist unaware of the Belgium restaurant opening times. Staff was super friendly and persuaded us to enjoy delicious dessert too. What a lovely bunch of people they are. There is also a deli on site too and we have purchased some of their very tasty mustard to enjoy at home (I know, it is mustard but hey, don’t knock it until you try it!!). Great place and we will definitely be returning.

A cold rainy Saturday afternoon in Ghent so we wandered into the Het Groot and discovered a real gem. The enclosed hall with hanging hams was amazing and though we had wanted a table inside the restaurant section we sat in the Hall and a warming lamp was placed beside us to warn us up. The food was wonderful and amazing chicken soup packed with flavour. We loved it.
