Even though we turned our stop signs over the food kept coming. It was tasty but a little like a franchised eatery. Probably not the place if you want a small meal but if your hungry, it's the place. Good wine.

This is a very small place in the most amazing area of Ghent (the Patershol), i.e. a fascinating medieval neighborhood. You'll find plenty of restaurants around here, but if you are a couple looking for a friendly and not too much over-priced place were to have a romantic dinner, I highly recommend this one. We have been welcomed by one of the most friendly waitress we met throughout our holidays, and the service has been great. We had one dish of tapas as a starter, and a delicious and rich serving of Paella (by the way, unless you are extremely hungry, a 2-people serving of Paella is more than enough to get satisfied). Highly recommended!

We really enjoyed this small and friendly place. Tapas were good, tasty and good value. As others say, book ahead as small and busy. Service is charming and efficent and food much better value than tourist restaurants.

This is a small restaurant in the Patershol area. It has very friendly service. I liked the food and the wine. Make sure you make a reservation up front, since it can be very busy and has only a limited number of tables.

My girlfriend and I each had a plate of tapas for starters and then shared a large paella as a main course, finishing off with a tasty dessert and although I am not that acquainted with the Spanish kitchen I had a very good experience!
---
Reservation: if you are planning on going to this little restaurant be sure to make a reservation, because it seems to be the only way in, unless you are very lucky...
---
Reception: from the moment we entered the restaurant we were given a very warm welcome, something most restaurants lack and should take an example from... So the reception was perfect!
---
Service: the service during the evening was impeccable and a good example of this was the fact that we were planning on ordering several little tapas plates for starters and then the paella as the main cource, but our waitor advised us to cut down the number of tapas, because the portions of the paella are huge... and she was right... the staff was very knowledgeable and good!
---
Food: the portions were huge, yet we did manage to finish all of it. The paella was very well prepared and was covered with seafood... Overall the food was plentiful and very tasty!
---
Price: the bill was around 75€ for two persons, but when you take into consideration what we ate and drank (wine and non alcoholic beverages) the price was very correct!
---
If you are looking for a small and cozy restaurant, if you are in the mood for a great paella or if you want to try something new, then this is one of the places to be in Gent... My overall grade would be 4,5 out of 5 stars.
