“lunchtime”
Reviewed April 30, 2012

You can have dinner here but If you come here during lunchtime you can enjoy a daily speciality for a very reasonable price (10 euro's). You can always eat of the menu in stead of choosing the daily specialty. Nice atmosphere, good food. And if your lucky with the weather, you can sit outside on the beautiful terrace.

“Travelers style restaurant/bar. Excellent food and beer!”
Reviewed December 18, 2011

We spent 3 nights in Ghent and were lucky to find this place on our first evening.It was so good that we returned for lunches on the following two days! The service was excellent and the food was really fresh and tasty. Checkout the Triple Karmeliet beer - really nice tasty ale. Supperb.

“Poor service and average food”
Reviewed September 15, 2011

I visited this restaurant on a Sunday and Tuesday evening, same week. The service was lame both times. We waited half an hour for the waiter to take our order and food was served one hour after we had arrived. We had to call the waiter to our table. You really need patience and luck to catch the waiters' attention as the place is always packed.

The food is simple and bland and you get generous portions. I ordered a veggie burger which was ok, but the Veggie vol-au-vent was swimming in its mushroom stuffing that was all over the plate. This dish from the Specials board did not have any flavour at all. I found it pricey, too.

Young people and travellers might still enjoy the atmosphere in Mosquito Coast, but I do not recommend it if you want a quiet night out and quality food. In a crowded restaurant like this, you should not expect food that is cooked with love and to perfection.
