I recommend a visit to Volta - very well aligned with the English meaning! The restaurant is in an old power station and has been superbly adapted with a bar on the first floor ( currently being refurbished) and the restaurant on the ground floor...More

Went there with a group of colleagues. The food was incredible and the setting is stunning! The service can come off as a bit stiff, but nothing which influenced the experience! I will be back there!

We thoroughly enjoyed the prix fixe lunch. Inspired cooking like this is not easy to find. Comfortably situated a short cab ride away from the tourist hub. Strongly recommend.

One of the must-eat places in Ghent. The interior is wonderful. The menu always surprising with great tastes and good value for money. Never a problem to eat here as a vegetarian!

The food was good and nicely portrayed with good wine paring but unfortunately the service was terribly nonchalant, uninformed, too young and unengaged. The male bartender was very gentle and observant though.

Friendly and young staff, that had problems with normal service when the restaurant was filled with guests. We were informed that there was a new chef, that had only been there a week. He seems to have Big problems in the kitchen! At many times,...More

Volta belongs to the foodie circle of a food crazed city. You are entertained to a unique, 5 or 6 courses menu, which was perfect from beginning to end, balancing inventivity and taste. The space is trendy with an open kitchen; the servive was nice,...More
