When I am alone or need a rather quiet stop at noon being correct served and having not the feeling being pushed out, I prefer to take the lunch here. But phone for reservation! + With visitors who are in Gent for the first time this is a good adress for dinner also. In the middle of the old town... More

My heart sank when we entered as the place is noisy and once you've noted that it is an old warehouse covered in distressed paint, and gone "ooh" and "ah" the reality is that you're on a bit of a conveyor belt and it shows. So I was going to knock points off my review for lack of charm etc... More

The restaurant is very centrally located in the historical part of Ghent. A very lively place, with friendly atmosphere. Perhaps some would find it a bit loud, but this was not a problem for me. Staff were friendly and efficient. All dishes were well prepared and tasty. The deer filet was superb. Good selection of wine and beers. All in... More

The food was fresh made but the potatos where more like röstis, so they where fried in fat, they didn't put that fat away from the potatoes, resulted in a very fat taste, it toke a bit the good taste of the duck. I will go there again to see if the other dishes are the same. Because the waiter... More

I go a lot to the pakhuis. A lot. Sometimes even for just a dessert as they have a mean creme brule. Service is excellent. Food is good. I do advice to go during the lunch as weirdly enough the quality drops if you go at night. Different cook maybe.

This came highly recommended so had high hopes (perhaps too high). Pakhuis is good and known for seafood but neither the service nor the food lived up to the hype and especially the prices. It's two-story, spacious, modern and old world hybrid feel - it's a lovely restaurant with lots of outdoor seating and bar area as well. It is... More
