Before going, I read some comments about good food but a bad service. We didn't experience this at all. The waiters were very friendly an polite. The food was good. The restaurant itself is in a very nice spot in Gent and beautifully restored.

The food even surpasses the pictures ... fantastic. No wonder with a chef coming from ** restaurants. Combine that with probably the best located terrace of Gent (the best view of the old harbour - much better than from the other shore ), or with...More
