One of the best meals and experiences I've had in a long time! The venue is gorgeous and the service was outstanding. My friend and I spoiled ourselves with the 5-course set menu with wine pairing. Chef Hicham Balafrej (we asked to meet him) whipped out creative, delicious, and inspiring dishes. Our waiter (Max) and the owner (Eddy Pycke) were... More

I visited here with a friend on a whim on our first night in Ghent. The restaurant is lush and beautiful with a really romantic vibe (lucky we're good friends!). The service from owner Eddy and max was exceptional. Very attentive, friendly and Max had a wonderful knowledge of the wine we had paired with our meal. Would definitely return,... More

I went here the first time for lunch and for 25 euro, I ate a three course meal like a queen. I went the second time for dinner on my birthday - and was treated to samples, and wine, and after dinner drinks, too. The staff is professional and charming. The ambience is elegant. The food is superb! It's not... More

I had dinner in this nice restaurant. Nothing to say about the location, forniture and style. Everything very accurate. But I thing the food, according to the price, was not special. The menu does is quite poor with not so many choices. We didn't take starters we had the main dish only and we were not satisfied. I had the... More

I took a large group for dinner here and everything was FABULOUS. The weather was nice so we started our evening by the river, relaxing sipping aperitif's while enjoying the beautiful view and special small dishes. We then moved into the front dining room for dinner. The room was stunning, the service was excellent and the food was beautifully presented... More

Sat outside along the river, service was very good, food was excellent. The menu offers a small but varied selection, prices are on the plus side but what do expect from such a restaurant and in my opinion the food was delicious, they made a simple Caesar salad taste amazing! The decor and ambiance of inside certainly attracts to make... More

We have visited this restaurant a number of times before and we still get "wowed" by the elegant interior. There is also outside seating by the river. We both had an excellent pork dish and were very pleased that it had returned to its previous high standard. The service was very good even though they had to cope with some... More

Ordering is at first Slightly complicated. There are three table d'hote choices: a four course dinner (two fish courses followed by a fish or beef main course followed by dessert or cheese); a five course meal (baby lobster added before the main); or a six course blowout (dessert AND cheese). And there are two amuse-gueules before the fish. Or you... More

Classy interior decor of the dining rooms in the renovated 18th century building, but we sat outside to enjoy the warm weather and the best view in Gent - that is of former guildhouses of the Graslei on the opposite bank of the river. We had chosen the chef's market menu (€45). First came the amuse bouche, then excellent beef... More
