“Drinks are OK, food is disgusting”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2014 via mobile

The drinks are perfectly fine, but the rest of our visit was a disaster. Took them more than an hour to serve us some simple warm tapas and, except two of them, they were simply disgusting. Plastic chicken wings, honey ribs tasting like nothing, and chicken nuggets that probably were made out of some old tyres.

When we asked to talk to the manager to complain, we didn't even got to say what we disliked, because the only thing she started yelling was that we would have to pay eventually while we were obviously going to, but just wanted some feedback.

Had quite a laugh about everything, so I would definitely recommend this restaurant if you have a lot of time, when you're not hungry, and want to experience the taste of real rubber.

“A new cafe has opened in Gent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2014

Just a few meters from the Vrijdags markt in Gent I have found La Picada, a cafe with a total new concept. The atmosphere is super warm, the ambient cosy and the personal is friendly. What likes me the most about La Picada is the original and delicious assortiment of tapas, such as warm bread with zalm, chorizo, goat chesse, serrano ham, cheese and ham and many more, and recently they have incorporated the queens of the place: Home made plates! chicken nuggets, crispy ribs, chicken wings, lasagna and vegetarian ragout, really tasty food!!!! if you combine them with a fresh beer, a prosecco or a perfect cocktail, then you've made your evening.
Not forgetting to mention the projection of old time movies. Don't miss it
