Myself and my family went to the Brasserie on Dec 26th in a busy holiday crowd. We reserved a table in advance, which was necessary to get an inside table at peak times, and had a very good meal. The service was partially slowed dude to peak hours, however, the quality of food was very good including the chateau briand and sea food fondu.

In one of the old buildings by the water, this place appears in more pictures than you would care to think about. We looked at several places to eat before deciding upon this one. The welcome and the aroma were what encouraged us to settle there. Without going on too much, the service was excellent already. they seemed genuinely pleased that we were there, and very helpful with the menu. We tried several dishes and all were tasty and well presented. we particularly enjoyed some of the Flemish specialties. Wine list was ok and well priced. The whole meal was good value. A really nice way to spend an evening.

Menu 5 with shrimp and with lobster was great. Very fresh and delicious food, for an affordable 43 euros. The waitress was friendly and we didn't have to wait long. Small minus points: the seating downstairs left very little room for maneuvering and the coffee served with the menu tasted rather chemical.

I must admit i chose this restaurant as a number of restaurants I originally wanted to book where closed on New Years Eve afternoon.

It turned out to be a great decision as we had a fabulous lunch in a very attractive restaurant in a fantastic spot in Ghent. This place in the summer would be a prime spot, and we where even tempted to eat outside under a heated lamp to take in the beautiful views.

We had Salmon(wife and mother in law) and beer beef stew(me and father in law) which all where fantastic. The best salmon dish ever one of our group proclaimed. The stew was beautiful accompanied with lovely Flemish fries, perfect!

All the staff where lovely and it was a great meal, which contributed to a perfect day in Ghent!

They have an extensive a la cart menu but as it was lunchtime, we had the 15Euro fixed 2 course lunch menu - tomatoe soup followed by Tilapia fillets in lemon hollondaise sauce accompanied by mash mixed with mushrooms & courgettes. The portions were generous and well presented. It was absolutely delicious and washed down well with a top class Sancerre. They offer a good range of wines served by the glass, half/bottle, 1/2 litre to suit all tastes. Great for couples, groups & families.
