This is a 'must-eat' restaurant in Ghent. We were not sure about booking it, but if you look at pictures of it, you will see what I mean. Aside from the food, the interior is very interesting - with split levels giving the venue depth - there is a buzzy quirky feel to it. The imposing bar gives it a... More

Pakhuis was suggested to us by locals as an interesting place for dinner with Clients. We were positively impressed by the place itself, than the staff help us to feel good. The service was quick, kind and 'in background' - we had good conversation within the group and it wasn't interrupted fir the whole evening. Interesting and tasty food, good... More

Great food, great ambience and a wonderful locale. I usually take the Black Angus bavette when I eat here. The menu changes frequently but the Black Angus bavette is always there and is always top quality. The vegetables, sauce, etc that accompany the dish do change frequently though. Desserts are also always great. If you want a good Belgian beer... More

Het Pakhuis (the Warehouse) is a renovated historic warehouse that is unique. It is very impressive with a spectacular interior even though this was designed by a modern architect and similar restaurants exist in other cities in Belgium. It is located in the very heart of the historic city, just off the Korenmarkt in a small side street. It is... More

This was a dinner at a business event. The setting is very cosy and attractive. The service is quite good and personnel is very polite. The food was good, fresh and a good hot meal (although we were with >80 people) You can sit on the balcony and you have a very nice view! There is a very nice acoustic... More

30 euro for 2 delicious regular-sized soles. The plate looks really cheap at first sight, they should add some vegetables or fries. They have good wines but should put on some cheaper on the menu.

If you are looking for a place with a great ambiance which links like you are going 25 years back in time this is it. Good food and great wine for an honest price.

Pakhuis is warehouse in English and that is what it is when you get inside. Food is really good, lots of seafood and many Belgian beers but some good wines matched to the food too. We had dinner but lunch is also possible.
