This charming, family-run place offers a genuine, homely taste of the Mediterranean (I'm from there, so I know) and, what's more, with a Maltese twist - now that's unique to Belgium, isn't it? Martin is tucked away in the semi-open kitchen, and pops out for a chat when possible, whilst Anna, his wife, welcomes and tends to customers endearingly. A... More

We found Villa Bardon after reading local reviews and double checking on Trip Advisor. Everything on the small menu sounded delicious. Our food was lovely; a sharing platter for 2 which comfortably fed 4 followed by sea bass and saltimbocca. Service was excellent and friendly and the food beautifully cooked.

This is Italian dining at it's best. Simple food prepared with love. The menu is limited to 5 entrees and 5 or 6 main dishes all freshly made. Entrees are 10 to 15 euro, main dishes 15 to 25 euro.

We were in the street for the Uncle's Bean's, next door. But the place was crowded and we were lucky to occupy the last table in the Villa Bardon. Very cozy place, very nice decor and floor. But most amazing, the food and service. This place got a very good cook, that's for sure. Staff was very friendly and we... More

A while ago, I vistited Villa Bardon with 2 friends, after wanting to go there for a while. I had a mediterranean roasted cockerel, with vegetables and oven-baked potatoes. I also had the chocolate mousse which was deliciously spicy, and a home made Limoncello. To be really honest, the food was heavenly, there was a great selection of wine, and... More

To our surprise, the place didn't turn out to be as magnificent as it is presented. The food is very specific, not bad actually but definitely far from divine or unsurpassed, it is really not that case. The bill was too high for the impression that we got: when everything is perfect, you don't mind paying more than u were... More

We found Villa Bardon by looking at the map. Very glad we stumbled onto this restaurant. Excellent service, staff translated and explained the menu for us. We both had the special (pappardelle with wild boar ragout) which was excellent. Finished with dessert (chili chocolate mousse and creme brûlée). Very reasonably priced and food was very flavorful. We intend to go... More

We honeymooned in Ghent in April, and Villa Bardon was recommended to us by our B&B host. We saved it for our last night and it was sublime (search my reviews to see what I had to say about it.) After a week in Berlin, we were driving back to the UK and decided to stop in Ghent for a... More

The menu isn't vast, though I suspect the specials change daily. Good, flavoursome and well handled ingredients. Everything tasted just right making for an enjoyable evening.

Enjoyed a very nice dinner at this lovely restaurant. The service was both welcoming and excellent. I chose a house special of bison pasta but unfortunately didn't care for the flavour. But my son liked his lsteak dinner. Appetizer was delicious. A bit pricey but worth the visit.
