Given its position in Korenmarkt we were concerned that this would be a bit of a touristy restaurant with everything that that all too often entails but we were pleasantly surprised. Despite it being packed service was relatively swift and the food excellent, but the real plus was that the bill for 2 courses and a decent bottle of wine for the two of us came in at 79 Euros. I would strongly recommend booking!

If visiting Ghent make sure you book your restaurants. Very hard to wing it and turn up. Our hotel booked this place for us as we arrived at 8pm on a Friday night and we were very happy with the food and service and nice place. I chose from the traditional menu and had a wonderful pig cheek Stoverij...yum. My husband had a steak which was perfect. If you like steak this is your place.

Although pricey this hidden gem is nothing short of fantastic. The service was impeccable despite being busy on the nite we went for dinner, the waiter returned to us regularly to satisfy our needs. The food was stunning although my starter was a little small, made up for by the excellently thought out flavours but still not so substantial. It was the perfect place to celebrate a family event and can not wait to return on our next visit to Belgium.
