Everything about this place feels so fancy. The prices on the menu don't reflect that. Everything is more expensive than your average restaurant but it is still very affordable. Try the lobster or the lobster bisque. I had it a few years ago and I was flabbergasted. Hmm hmm hmm. Thank you for your wonderful service

This is thé place to be for lobster in the wider Gent area. The restaurant is unassuming: come as you are. But what counts is the delicuous seafood that appears on your plate.

Imagine yourself in a simple house, one of the many on the row of houses. Imagine yourself in a room of the simple house, packed with tables, some for 2 some for 4 some for 6 persons. Almost crampy. But all tables get filled during lunch. Does this sounds like a nice restaurant? No, it doesn't. It sounds like one... More

Nice fish & seafood place, friendly staff. Expected a bit more really special things, seen they have a Michelin bib gourmand, but everything stayed normal / pretty safe. But very tasty, very good food.

We decided to have the weeklunch here and were not disappointed. Service was smooth but not hasty, house wine nice and reasonably priced, food fresh and well prepared. Will be back.
