Went there on a saturday night. It was busy, but we managed to get a table for two without reservation. We both took the menu which has three courses and two options per. For the entree I had spinach with cottage cheese. Which seemed like it wasn't much at first glance, but actually tasted awesome. My girlfriend got the lamb... More

We ate at Vier Tafels in the week between Christmas and New Year. They offer an interesting menu with different types of exotic meats, some Thai dishes as well as Belgian classics like "waterzooi". One of us had the waterzooi and found it excellent. Other dishes we tried were good. Prices are in the upper medium range. Service was a... More

We had dinner with 24 people at Vier Tafels. The food was not that bad, but very expensive. The service was unfriendly, slow and arrogant. We had a bill of 750 Euro, but when we asked for a glass of tap water it seemed impossible: 'tap water costs money was the reply.' A disgrace for Ghent which has much better... More

We had a pleasant event here with a rich choice of courses. Four people were able to order different delicious plates. The place was not crowded on Sunday noon, but I admired the owner cooking and serving five tables with modest assistance of his wife and son. Must come back.

We were attracted by the exotic menu (kangaroo, Zebra, Ostrich). It looked lacking in customers. We didn't get the warmest welcome, front of house lady needs to go to charm school or retire! There is limited choice and prices are quite high. The toilet was very basic and one for whole restaurant. It could be much better with a make-over.... More

We were looking for a place to have dinner and, after a lot of walking we decided to stop here. Not really sure what we were expecting but, one I looked closely to the menu, we decided to go for something different: Ostrich and kangaroo!!! Both dishes were absolutely gorgeous and the meat much tender that expected. Service from the... More

On a day trip to Ghent, this accidental discovery was a delightful place to have lunch. Very cute, cozy little place with a very comfortable garden area. I had Thai-spiced prawns that were delicious but very, very messy to eat. The house white wine was good, the waiter was helpful and I can recommend a meal here to Ghent visitors.

Having been invited to this restaurant along with a large group, we were to pick from a menu group which offered choices of fish or meat. Our menu consisted of veal carpaccio or spiced Thai-like fish, then Gentse waterzooi (typical Ghent's fish soup) or kangaroo. It feels a mix between more traditional and some typical dishes, along with some exotic... More

I have lived in Ghent for many years and restaurant Vier Tafels is my absolute favourite. Friendly staff, excellent location close to the castle and river and "amazing" dishes. They do traditional Belgian cuisine (like Waterzooi) and they have some fabulous exotic meals like kangaroo and crocodile. Living in Australia now I have yet to come to an Australian restaurant...
