It's not something special but we had a fine lunch here. Although I do think it is a bit overpriced for the portions they serve. Would not really recommend it because there are way more and much nicer places in Ghent.More

We (family with baby and dog!) have been at Amfora for a drink and wafle and the day after for lunch. Both days the staff welcomed us warmly and took real "care" of us. Food was lovely especially the wafle with homemade chocolate!

We came in to hide from the rain and were glad we did. We had tea and waffles. The waffles with ice cream and cherries were fab. The waffles weren't too syrupy like other places in Ghent. The waitress was really helpful and offered us...More
