Our second visit. This time with a group of colleagues. Excellent food. Fast and friendly service. When crowded with a number of latge parties it can get a bit noisy. Don’t let this keep you from visiting.

This restaurant serves delicious food in a tranquil atmosphere, with a very high level of service. At the summer, be sure to get hold on a table outside (magnificent view along the water). The price you pay is worth spending.

Excellent food, friendly and efficient service. We asked to give us some time before the main course. Place is fairly noisy which makes it difficult for larger groups (8 people) to talk.

Had lunch there today. We had a wonderful table outside, by the water. The restaurant was full but had a very relaxed atmosphere as the tables were far enough apart. I had the smoked salmon salad which was very tasty but smaller than I expected...More

Very good restaurant located in Ghent, in a very nice place. Lovely decorated and warm atmosphere. The food and the service were great. It’s a very busy place, so I recommend to make a reservation

This restaurant has been refurbished and looks very nice. Also the food is excellent with a large choice for everyone. Extensive wine choice. The tastes are well balanced. A pity it is quite noisy.

Very common menu-list for a flemish restaurant, but superior quality when served. Friendly and always smiling personnel makes you feel at ease. Mocktail (for Tournée Minerale) was excellent. Not overpriced.

Had a lunch that was very nice for an acceptable market rate in neighborhood. Service is friendly and efficient. Lunchtime is crowded, what makes parking not easy, so be in time!

There is a bar, but my impression is that it is more a standby place before you get your table.
