nicely decorated restaurant, very friendly staff, excellent food and wine pairing. Dinner menu was fixed, you can only choose between meat or fish and which drinks to have (ie, soft or alcoholic).

The restaurant is a bit hidden in Patershol, Gent. But it's worth te visit. Nice clean restaurant. We took the lunch: two courses for 30 euro. Wine included: 12 euro. Delicious, surprising dishes and outstanding presentation.

This place is without a doubt the best place to eat, that is from all the places I have been to. I have been to this restaurant several times and each time it was fantastic. The menu is a set and sometimes I wonder if...I would actually like what is on offer, silly me everything is outstanding. Of course great restaurants in Ghent are not cheap, this is no exception. However, I can’t wait for my next visit. Book early as it is very popular.More

Booked a table for two, and I can only state that, from the moment of entering the restaurant, this was a wonderful experience. A very great welcome, swift and oh so kind service, but above all, what a great tasting adventure, such nice and different...aromas, and this combined with fantastic wines. For me, by far, the best restaurant in town. And, honnestly, it already starts when entering this very old neighborhood. You can feel that it will be a great evening... Enjoy!More
