“Afternoon drink”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013 via mobile

Weather cold wet and windy by the welcome was very warm. Only had a mid afternoon beer and coffee to give the feet a rest but the restaurant was full with a mixture of people eating and drinking. Nice atmosphere and worth a look.

“Wok chicken and rice - Superb !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

This is a definite must try dish. It was great to look at and just as good to eat. I asked for the recipe and was told by the chef the secret was using Thai fish oil. Will be going back there again next year on our trip to Brugge as Ghent is only a short train journey away. You won't be disappointed.

“Excellent Brasserie right in front of the Cathedral. Best burger in Gent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

I have eaten here now several times. In the winter, they serve excellent soup in a lovely atmosphere inside. During the spring / summer, you can sit outside in a lovely square with views of the cathedral and belfry. They serve a great burger - the best in Gent. French fries are also great. The service has been excellent on all three visits - should be ranked higher. Also serve traditional Belgian food as well.

“nice terrace next to top attraction in Ghent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2011

this tavern/ restaurant is situated next to the St-Baafs Cathedral in historical centre of Ghent. It offers the possibility of either eating on the terrace with a nice view on the cathedral and the square in front of it, or inside. The kitchen is serving many typical flemish dishes which are nicely prepared and served in sufficient quantities. the "gentse waterzooi" and the stew are excellent served with typical belgian chips. The restaurant is informal, relaxed and open to all. In the afternoon you can also enjoy a cup of coffe or a drink... A nice place to go when visiting Ghent !
