Excellent cozy restaurant just on the edge of city center. Very nice host with a specific style. Surprise menu is always excellent. Delicious honest food and surprising wines at very modest prices, a true Gem in the heart of Ghent.

unlikely-looking restaurant from the outside, with entrance more like a 1950s office, but worth negotiating as the food, service and atmosphere is excellent. we had a business dinner here, on recommendation from the hotel, and were all delighted. we asked for chef's choice to save...More

The food in this place is delicious. The service on the other hand... We didn't really feel welcome. The wine didn't match the menu (as promised) and when we politely said something about it, we got the answer that our remark was "inconvenient". Ordered dessert...More
