Nice setting to have dinner, lunch. With couple of colleagues we had only the starter based on salmon with oasterleaf. Nicely cooked and served. Are there better restaurants in Ghent? Sure, but this one deserves a visit as well. No risk.

I believe that the restaurant is in a strategic place located: Center in front of the Cathedral and inside the Theatre. Foyer is the classical Belgian Brasserie with traditional Belgian dishes. I had a Ceaser salad as a main course. Ok but nothing of another...More
