Perfect meal, perfect place and perfect staff. One of the best restaurants in Belgium. The food was fresh, properly prepared and a great value for the price. I highly recommend it.

Restaurant & Bar Lof is a great choice for dinner with friends. The menu is great, with a variety of options to choose from and culinary specialties that are bound to tickle your taste buds. The atmosphere is nice and the service is impeccable. Will definitely stop by the restaurant on our next visit to Ghent.

I will never forget the moment I entered this restaurant. It was the most perfect combination of chic, elegant, warm, cozy, beautiful, and majestic! The food was made and presented to perfection in every possible way!!! There were gluten free options that surpassed any I have eaten even in an all gluten free restaurant. I am returning in December and... More

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.

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.
