We accidently dropped by in this hotel-restaurant because my wife had read some god reviews. We had the menu of the day which was 2 fish-dishes and dessert at a very reasonable price

In the heart of Ghent, at 500 meters from Sint Michael church, you'll find the restaurant "Lof" which is hosted within an old restored historical building (nowadays a reputated hotel which I cannot rate as I didn't sleep here). We had the lunch outside and -although it is the week of the 'Gentse Feesten', the silence was all over the... More

Great, sometimes surprising tastes in a set 3 course lunch. Perhaps main dish cod/should have been a bit more. Half a litre of water for 5+€ is (like in most restaurants in Europe) a clear rip-off. Enjoyable atmosphere, great setting, hotel and especially the bar looks amazing.

What I would call posh nosh, but very filling. We were given little extras, entrees and little desserts with the coffee. The food looked and tasted delicious.

We had an outstanding meal here. I had vegetarian dishes but the other guests also found it to be very fine food. The starter especially had many different tastes and accents. It's the more expensive kind of restaurant, the once-in-a-year kind (for me), but it's definitely a recommendation.

We ate on a Sunday evening at Lof whilst staying at the Grand Hotel Reylof. Although a hotel restaurant Lof has a lot of atmosphere and we saw that it was absolutely full and bustling on Friday and Saturday nights. Although quieter on a wet Sunday evening it was still quiet busy. The room is a modern design which is... More

I love the food, setting and service. They are very accommodating to my dietary requirements and even serve gluten free bread and small "amuse bouche" which were suitable for me.

Restaurant Lof will pleasantly surprise you! As soon as you step into the restaurant and taste the modern cuisine with classical hints, you will know what we mean. The colourful, elegant designs of the restaurant by Christian Lacroix and Designers Guild, in combination with the sublime dishes prepared by Chef Joris Korsten and his team, have awarded the restaurant an enviable reputation.
