Stumbled on the House of Elliot on a day trip to Gent and decided to give it a try as a birthday treat. The waiters were able to squeeze my wife and little daughter into a corner table by the window (although we had no reservation and many other places in town seemed booked up). The decor is cool... kind of camp 1920s style with loads of weird stuff that they've collected over time and view over the canal is nice way to watch the cute boats go past.
The food was fantastic - I had the lobster with broccoli and garlic which got the taste buds bouncing and my wife enjoyed her monkfish. The chef was also kind enough to whip up some mashed potato with broccoli for our little daughter and it was funny to see that he put the same amount of care into the presentation of her dish :) ... and she seemed to appreciate it! We had some house white wine which was fine.
It's not the cheapest place you'll eat but for a once in a while treat we were surprised to leave completely full and actually felt it was very good value for the service and ambience provided.
If we ever return to Gent we'll remember this spot.
