The restaurant is warm and trendy, the food was good but the staff seemed a little inexperienced and you'll need to bring an extra pillow if you're seated in the low sofa like chairs Ouch! The atomosphere would have been nicer if we had been sat closer together but because of the aforementioned chair problem we couldn't hear eachother if we leaned back in our chairs.

Best overall restaurant in Gent. We had a very balanced menu. The food was excellent. so was the wine and the view over the Graslei. The interior is trendy chic. Nr 1 for me in Gent.

just go and see this old medieval house, relax weather permitting at the outside, watch people passing by, wonder the architecture, the food is not that great, but it still is nice and not that expensive,

Our first visit to Ghent accidentally coincided with the opening of the Ghent Music Festival in September. So when we booked to go to the Belga Queen we were only promised seats at a high, communal table as it was to be a very busy night - the stage for the free opening of the festival was over the canal next to the restaurant. When we arrived we were taken upstairs to a table next to a window. Not quite with a view of the stage, but certainly looking out over what ended up being a crowd of many thousands - and the performance by an acrobat suspended from a large balloon. Spectacular. Our meal was first class, too. We took the set menu and enjoyed all the courses. Some sophisticated cooking. Interesting and well balanced flavours. This was a meal on a par with others we have had at serious restaurants at home, and at a price that made it very good value. The accompanying wine was perfectly adequate. Altogether a very impressive effort. Service was just as we needed as well.

We visited in a group of 6 with mixed nationalities and age and on first impression it seems like a really cool place with rolling( or was it rocking?) chairs and candelabras everywhere. The staff are dressed in the most odd outfits of dresses for guys.We didn't really enjoy it here, we felt slightly unwelcome for some reason like we didn't fit in with the colour scheme in some way and this came across by the way they responded to us. They were efficient but icily cool and distant.The food seemed overpriced and was nothing to shout about. I would not return and would choose somewhere a little more genuine with less pomp!
