This place looks rather formal but is actually very relaxed and is clearly popular with locals. We enjoyed the food and the service although it was a little expensive for what we had, given that portions were quite small. Its about 10 minutes walk from...More

I would dare to say it's the best restaurant I visited in the past two years. Obviously when I say 'best' I mean in this price range. The food was delicious, we took surprise menu and we were surprised :). Good portions, so you won't...More

Another couple we are traveling with in Belgium and my husband and I had dinner at Faim Fatale, and we were all delighted. We ate outdoors in the garden, which was lovely. Three of us ate the fixed price “surprise menu” of two appetizers, an...More

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.

There is a daily changing 2 course lunch, so check in advance on their webpage if it is appealing. The lunch includes traditional and non-traditional courses, our starter was clearly Asian inspired. The lunch is very reasonably priced, and service is decently quick and friendly,...More

Great central location for a business lunch. The food is refined, but with strong flavours (which is good). The property is small only having ten or so tables, which creates a nice intimate atmosphere. Only 4/5 because it took over 20 minutes for dessert to...More

I have known this restaurant for a while now. It is a sure value. If you want non-complicated food in a cosy atmosphere, that's your choice. The food is honest, not thrilling, but I thought the quality/price ratio was ok. We went for the surprise...More
