Great food

My partner and I booked to eat at Lof while staying in the Sandton Reylof. We ordered the 3 course menu which came with a few extra bits. The food was really interesting - tastes and textures were wonderful and the presentation was great. We would have easily given the food a rating of 5. Our... read more

This restaurant attempts to approach Michelin star standards but misses the mark on the details. The evening started well with drinks and some nibbles at the table and once the order had been taken more arrived just before the starters were served and it all seemed to be in a rush. The starters were fine but complicated and after a... More

Staying in the hotel, we decided to eat in Lof. As hotel residents, we received impeccable service. We accepted that the cost was likely to be more than other establishments, but not excessively so. The food was pleasant, but not fantastic. Our starters were delightful, my pheasant with beetroot especially so. However, our main courses disappointed - an average steak... More

Miserable food for a ridiculous price! it starts with the quality of food, espacially when it comes to meat and ends with the desired doneness. It seems that they wanna cook at a high level but aren't able too. Really uneatable! What a waste of food!!!

The restaurant is very cosy. A live band played music, a pianist and a singer, very nice. For the lunch you can go for a main course at 18 Euros, main course with starter or dessert at 28 Euros, or main course with starter and dessert for 35 Euros, all coffee or tea included. This is a good arrangement when... More

Great food, great service, great experience! We ordered a 4 course menu for around 50 euro each and were not disappointed. We had rabbit, fish and duck and melon with gin for dessert. Everything was extraordinary and looked great. Atmosphere was great too, with friendly but nor arrogant staff. I also quite liked the decor of the restaurant.

On my last night in Ghent decided to try the LOF since I stayed on Sandton Grand Hotel Reylof and must say it was pleasant surprise. The dinner was impeccable, the menu is amazing and they have a nice variety of belgian beers. The ambient is classy, the staff is friendly and efficient. Next time in Ghent I'll eat in... More

This restaurant is part of the Sandton Grand Hotel Reylof. The dining room has traditional old world elegance and the tables are well spaced out. We were kindly given a menu which had been translated into English. However the translation left a little to be desired. The service was supposed to be stiff and formal however it didn't quite come... More

We had lunch during the Ghent jazz festival and enjoyed the fixed menu. The chef should be congratulated on the beautiful and tasty vegetarian plates. The food was impeccable. However, the service was lacking. The waiters were pretentious and did not care about us because we were not guests at the hotel. The only nice waiter was a young woman... More
