I enjoyed the atmosphere here, a short distance off the center of the historic city. We could eat outdoors without all of the noise and bustle of the restaurants on the squares and canals. Oysters are featured here and they are good. Served only with lemon, unlike the usual US presentation of cocktail sauce and horseradish that masks the flavor.... More

Staff looked after us well, there was a nice selection of wine and the food was good....they prepare a lovely lobster belle vue and the oysters are of a good standard, whether it's fish or meat this place serves up a tasty selection of...

The place was bustling, and waiters and waitresses were going around, keeping busy!! our waiter did everything to make our wait pleasant! Food wise we were pleased with what we ordered. The wines suggested to go with the dishes we chose were good.... More

The only two reasons to visit this restaurant: (1) Your tour bus guide got a bribe from the place, or (2) your conference organizer got a bribe to bring your whole group there. If you are a couple or small group, there ar at least a hundred better places to go in Ghent. "High" points of my dinner there with... More

On a weekend to Ghent, we booked lunch at Pakhauis, I am so glad we did because it was the culinary highlight of our trip! Pakhauis is set in a light filled space lit by a huge roof window, the mezzanine gave us some fantastic views of the space below. The decor is well thought out and provided an excellent... More

Loved the food, the ambiance, the manager was so helpful and so attentive! Made my trip! Loved every minute of my meal. The food was so flavourful. Loved my salmon and the steak! Fresh flowers in the huge vase. Definitely value for money!

I've been to the Pakhuis many times before, both with groups and with a few friends or colleagues. In general it is good; even though it's not my type of place. This time, it was disappointing on many fronts. First of all, this place is big. Differently from most really good restaurants in Ghent, it can sit hundreds of people... More

This restaurant can be quite difficult to find as it is housed in an old warehouse which sits on a sidestreet between the main shopping street and the river. The interior is quite a dramatic space, but we chose to lunch outside on the terrace area to the rear of the building. It is probably the worst view in Ghent... More

A great restaurant in a warehouse-type building. Massively popular; book before you go. There's a small bar area that's good for a drink too
