If you are fortunate enough to go to Ghent or, for that matter, pretty much any other European city and see for yourself the fine architecture, the polite and well-educated people (chances are that most of them will be able to speak some English), the cleanliness, the spirit, the good food available in most places and the many other cultural...

Having booked a table sometime ago I was glad I had when I found tghat the Ghent Festival was taking place. That said I don't think we would have had a problem getting a table without a reservation as they seemed plenty on space. I had eaten here a couple of times on a previous visit to Ghent in 2014...

It is best to make a reservation in advance, specially for dinner. Good menu with a lot of choice, a bit pricey

I am a big believer that platforms like TripAdvisor help people in making decisions: where to sleep, where to eat or which monument to visit but this is just blandly absurd. I have lived in Ghent for almost my entire life and I cannot see why people rate this as #4 of restaurants in Ghent. Not at all. Having some... More

This was one of our 'must go back' places, and we are so glad we did. Everything was just as good as we remembered. It was packed both inside and out, and its easy to see why. The food was delicious, the service was friendly and efficient. Everything just perfect.

We enjoyed a lovely evening, we sat inside although the weather was warm, as there was some event happening and the whole town and outdoor seating was packed. We chose Chateaubriand for two, cooked rare it was very flavoursome but a bit on the chewy side. Served with a very fresh mixed salad each, and a ridiculous amount of fries,... More

The square outside Du Progress is crowded with restaurants and since all of them has pretty much the same tables and chairs its hard tell which is which. We got good service from the waiters and due to heavy and dark clouds we moved inndoor. Chateubriand for (four adults)us and spagetti and burger for the children, with drinks and wine... More

Decided to visit here after reading trip advisor reviews. We were initially concerned as we were warned not to use a restaurant on the square as they were typically expensive and not the best but this was certainly not the case. We ordered a prawn starter to share and then both had spaghetti for a main. The food was very... More

Great evening sat in the main square of old town Ghent. Tripadvisor rating seems a little over the top - it was good, but not No.4 in the city. Service was attentive, food a little bland and steaks tough.

I was able to get a reservation for Saturday night when I stopped by Saturday afternoon, but it was at 9 PM even for one person. Definitely book ahead! Even though it was busy and I was taking a table where two people could have been seated, I received excellent service and was not rushed. Other reviewers are right -... More
