I was staying at the Marriott and had breakfast here only the once. The service was fine but the food, while ok was nothing remarkable and I've had better. The thing that annoyed me the most was that so many of the plates, cups, milk jugs and table ware had chips in them and should be replaced. It could be quite a different experience for lunch or dinner but I wasn't tempted to find out.

We stayed at the Marriott and our diner was included in the package we had (she-deals).
Our main course was a baby lobster and for dessert we had strawberries with sponge cake, crumble and lots of other flavorous things :-)
Recommended.

The excellent location and the connection to the Marriott Hotel draws an international crowd. We chose the Korenhuismenu, a formula with 3 or 4 courses. Exquisite food, well presented and served by attentive waitresses. The portions are normal for a more gastronomical orientated kitchen, so big eaters might be disappointed. We however were not. Be sure to have your aperitif or digestif in the lobby bar of the hotel - magnificent! Nice offer of wines and whiskys, among others.

We were planning to do our wedding diner here. But because we never had eaten here before, me and my girlfriend would check it out first. We fought it would be ok but just to be on the safe side.
I'm very glad we did this. Because we didn't get what we would expect from a restaurant like this.
Undercooked food badly executed dishes terrible service.
Chunks of leek that were grilled but basically raw. Brandade that was a cream like substance . Cutlery that was forgotten and thrown on the table. No explanation of the dish. While a other table people got a explanation. Unfriendly service. And when we asked the dessert card we had to wait for more the 15 minutes and still didn't get it. So we decided to leave as quickly as possible and not wait for the complementary coffees and forget the whole experience and not do our wedding diner here.
If you would like a great food experience in Ghent than do not go for the Korenhuis. There are better restaurants at walking distance within the same price range

First of all we would like to thank you for your visit at our restaurant. Thank you for the time you’ve taken to inform us about the problem you have experienced.

We are very sorry to hear that the quality of food was not as wished and that the staff didn't go that extra mile to make your restaurant experience unforgettable and to planify your wedding in our hotel in the future.

We will be very happy to welcome you again in our restaurant and proof that we are able to do the opposite as you experienced recently. Please feel free to contact our restaurant personally.

Once again we would like to apologize for the inconvenience, especially since this is not the high standard of service we thrive to provide as a Marriott Hotel.

This restaurant has great Belgian cuisine. It is connected to the Marriott, so convenient for guests or business travelers. Service was excellent although waitstaff seemed to get stretched as the restaurant began to fill. Food was excellent, although perhaps not the best value for the price.
