Amazing flavor from the best quality ingredients and even just vegetables stood out among the best restaurants. Just a little salt. Ingredients perfectly paired to provide layers of delightful flavors. Never overly presented so that it looked a flower garden. Even the classic dishes were...More

Absolutely fantastic culinary experience as you would expect from a Michelin starred restaurant. Great setting, lovely service. All top notch. This place is expensive as you would expect, which is ok. What was disappointing was their need to up sell you on even more outrageously...More

I was so lucky this year to be invited in two different two stars restaurants for my anniversary. Vrijmoed was excellent, of course, you would not expect less… but, compared to Boury in Roeselare, I was missing the "waw !". Dishes were not so exceptional...More

My colleague and me had lunch at Vrijmoed. Service and atmosphere: excellent! Food: not as surprising/astonishing as I had hoped for. I’ve had a much bigger ‘wow’ feeling at other Michelin star restaurants. I wouldn’t come back for that reason.

Excellent restaurant in the centre of ghent. We did not take the menu but had some extremely good tasting starters and main course. For me the dessert (chocolate and chicory) was a bit too adventurous. But we will go back for sure

Unbelievably good food and service. This restaurant is worth the rating of two Michelin stars. The service from the moment you walk through the door is incredibly good. The degustation with matching wines was exquisite. Every dish comes with an explanation of its content, then...More

My friend and I took a day trip to Ghent during our 4-day trip in Brussels. I booked lunch at Vrijmoed, the only restaurant with 2 Michelin stars in Ghent, well in advance. The entrance of Vrijmoed was discreet. We even needed to press the...More
