The tagliatelle with salmon we ordered was drenched in a heavy, creamy and rather boring sauce. Not refined at all, more something a student would whip up. The house wine served was decent, but not at all something I would serve with a meal. Quality...More

We had carpaccio and two flamisch courses. All delicious! And very good white wine too. Good locating and nice staff. Only thing was that we had to to wait a little bit - but because of many guests at the Gentse-feest, that’s fair enough!

After insisting we would like to be seated inside, the wait staff finally quit trying to get us to sit outside in the heat. I must say the food was delicious but the service bad. It did improve when the manager arrived.

For a mid-priced local meal in Ghent this is our favorite! Right in the heart of downtown you can dine indoors or outdoors. We ordered the Scampi in garlic butter and the chicken casserole originally from Ghent (Gentse waterzooi) with fries. The scampi was great...More
