“Perfect location, lovely menu, great service”
Reviewed April 13, 2014 via mobile

We had shrimp croquettes for starter. Gorgeous but only luke warm. Main courses were spaghetti bolognaise, which was spaghettini sweet and gooey... Not the best I've had if I'm honest, the steak was enormous and tasty, fries were perfect, the gourmand house salad was exceptional. Portions are extra large. We paid €30 each with 3 soft drinks and 2 beers. Service was polite, friendly and accommodating. Alfresco dining in Ghent comes with outdoor heaters, blankets and well insulated marquees so eating out is invariably in a cosy setting with stunning views of the river. Great atmosphere. Closes early so grab a table by 8pm if you can. Will return again with friends.

“Great Food”
Reviewed April 11, 2014 via mobile

Great food, good staff and and great location. Eat inside if you can, food is packed with flavour. Try the Chamay Blue beer, it's the best.

“Good service average food”
Reviewed March 24, 2014 via mobile

Got recommendations from hotel to go and managed to get an early table. Good service from waiter and super friendly with the kids who got crayons etc.
Food was a disappointment. We hade a big seafood plate and the fresh lobster was great but the salmon and cod was way overdone. To bad for this nice location/place

“Superb !”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

We went there with the smart deal menu from the restaurant's website. 39euros for 2 people that included a 3 course menu: half a canadian lobster with garlic and herbs and served with pasta, steak with pepper sauce and fries and salad and crème brûlée and as expected everything was so tasty ! The interior was cozy and luxury and the staff so friendly. I would definitely dine there again.

“Moules Frites”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

I ordered Mussels with garlic and cream, which came with Fries. Got a huge pot of mussels, enough for 3 people for 24 euros. Mussels and sauce were outstanding. Fries were average; I prefer the more thin and stringy type of Frites. These had a more american style cut. Wonderful ambience and decor. Staff was friendly and attentive.
