Made our first stop to A Food Affair for a holiday dinner and glad we did. Delicious salads, creative Thai filet mignon and curry dishes, and desserts in just the right amount. Quaint setting, friendly hosts, nice evening.

It's a little bit out of the center of Ghent (10 minutes walk) but bus 3 stops almost in front of the restaurant. So it can't be a problem to visit this restaurant!
