We were drinking at a bar next to the restaurant and wandered in to Chez Leontine for dinner. It is a quaint restaurant on the canal. I had the rabbit and my husband had the fish stew. The rabbit was cooked in one of the dark Belgian beers and it was so tender that the meat fell off of the fork. My husband could not finish his fish stew and the broth was more seasoned and tasty than what we had the night before and for much less euros. The service was a bit slow but I am becoming more accustomed to that in Ghent.

Had a booking for 8pm, were given a seat at the entrance of the restaurant.
waited at the front for some time until someone bothered to show us our seats.
After receiving our menus, waited 10 minutes but nobody came by to say hello or offer us a drink.
so we left for somewhere else.

We wanted to try some of the local Flemish dishes and were pleasantly surprised. The fish lasagna was absolutely delicious and the abbey dark beer and fresh bread a perfect combination. The decor is wood and has an old historical house feel to it. We sat upstairs and could look down through the middle floor in the centre. They have a massive beer list here with its' own beer menu. English is spoken with friendly staff. We would return.

The beer list has over 300 items, believe it or not! The menu is rather sparse compared to the beer list but the food was tasty and the service was relaxed. No rush at all. In fact on Friday night we spent three hours there and nobody hustled us about anything. S, sit back and enjoy the waterzooi (either chicken or fish) or the fish lasagna!

My friend who lives in the area took us there for authentic Flemish food. I ordered rabbit meat with beer stew and she got a vegetable and chicken soup. The portions were huge! One dish would have filled both of us. I loved the stew - meat was tender, you can taste the fruit sauce, and it's not salty! The soup was plentiful too. We also tasted the Belgium fries that comes in a big bowl - yum! This has to be one of the best flemish restaurants in that area.

We also ordered beers - how can you not when in Belgium? I think we paid a little over 20 euros per person, which was a great price for the quality and quantify of the food.
