The place is nice, and they serve simple local food. We had the meal of the day, which was a salad. My companion loved it but I personally thought that the plate had too mush elements that didn’t match together. Like apple and asparagus. We...More

Two couples. Pleasant people but a bit bland for a vegetarian meal, not much flavour to any of the dishes which was a bit disappointing. Ok if you're pushed for choice.

I was introduced to this great restaurant by a vegan friend who lives in Gent. I have to say I’ve already experienced vegan cuisine because my son joined the revolution 2 years ago. This understated yet homely restaurant offers the visitor the warmest of welcomes...More

Little restaurant where you can enjoy delicious vegetarian food. Must mention how carefully and delicate the Cook was making our food (we could see him from the table), and how nicely he treated us, despite the fact that the closing time was soon.

The place is very cozy, owners are kind and music is good! Food is so and so, something is missing. But however maybe I'm wrong, I suggest you to try!
