We all chose the "taster" plate with about seven different dishes. Everything was wonderful. Small choice of puddings, the apple tart was divine. Friendly service, cosy décor. A short walk from the historic centre.

We went there for lunch and luckily we were given a table at a corner. Not a best spot, but without reservation we should be thankful to be able to seat. Green taart was sold out, so we had lunch plate and daily salad, which were really really good. The place is busy, so you cannot expect a lot of... More

Once in a month they serve during weekends a vegetarian/vegan menu and we decided we wanted to give it a try... Tastes are so personal and this was not really my cup of tea ;) Love vegetarian food, think the vegan was a step to far for me :)

The food at Avalon was pretty decent. Good quality and a well-sized portion. We had the menu with the dish of the day, which had a lot of random ingredients. Taste wise it was good, but a little bit random. The thing that annoyed us the most was the extremely slow service. We went there for lunch, and spent nearly... More

We had to wait for an hour for our lunch (we all ordered the same dish of the day). People who came in after us got their lunch before us. In company of 4 we were with 2 vegans. For vegans the food was OK (and not more than that). Non-vegans left out quite a bit on the plate. 15€... More

We reserved a table here during a weekend in Ghent and were not disappointed. Cosy little restaurant in what seems like an old shop. We were actually seated in the shop window and had a beautiful view of the old "Gravensteen" castle. I ordered a vegetable pie, which ws served on a large plate filled with delicious vegetables, some raw,... More

I was really excited about visiting the restaurant as I had read about it beforehand. The atmosphere was really nice in there and the staff were pleasant enough. The food, however, was probably what a lot of non-vegetarians think we eat-ie: a big plate of 'worthy' slightly sloppy/stodgy vegetables. Maybe we went on a bad day but my partner and... More

/What a wonderful find, just two very short blocks away from the Castle. Their menu is very limited and the best deal of the dish of the day -- limited because they use the best of ingredients grown locally so the dishes are based on what is available. Our daily special included a simple salad with julienne cucumbers, mashed lentil,... More

My family stumbled upon this restaurant when we discovered that De Lieve was undergoing renovations. We visited for dinner during the Gent festival and they had a special menu during the celebrations. I had the tofu stew and the rest of my family had the portobello burger, curry, and pasta. The food was excellent. Their use of spices and herbs... More
