Had just come down from The Tower across the street and decided it was time to eat. On a whim stepped into Passions because the sign said "Belgium Waffles". What a delight! Intimate dining space with very attractive decor. Ordered the waffles and could not have been more pleased. Light and sweet with strawberries and whipped cream. Also ordered tea... More

We stopped here for a coffee. The coffee was delicious and served with a small Chocolate Muffin and a tiny Easter Egg. The cost was €6.40. The two members of staff were friendly, efficient and spoke fluent English. My wife visited the ladies and said that they were spotless, so much so that she told the staff!

We were looking for a place to eat breakfast when we spotted their board for waffles. The place is cozy but expensive. However, the waffles are worth every penny as it's the best waffles you can ever find. Would definitely recommend!

We were very hungry and looking for a good place to eat in the Ghent city center, found this on trip advisor and stepped in.... this is a very proper, sit down and eat place. After getting over the initial hesitation, the staff quickly showed us to a table and the owner came over for a little chat - he... More

Service was great, portions are big and worth the money. If you want a light lunch you could share. We tried two of the local specialties (beef and rabbit stews) which were delicious. Our only regret is that we didn't have space for the waffles which looked amazing and we had to watch other people enjoying them. We may go... More

We stopped by on a cold, wet December day in the early afternoon and was greeted by warm, friendly staff. We were seated promptly and then proceeded to enjoy some great coffee and pie. We would have stayed for dinner if the time had allowed. Just a great time. Would go back again!

My friend and I were looking for a place for dinner and without reservation during Christmas season that is almost impossible. After getting turned down at a couple of places without the options of leaving our names so that we can come back later, Passion was showed that service and warmth still exist in Ghent. Passion's service is great! Warm... More

We had a quick lunch after a sightseeing tour of the city. I have finally tasted the typical dish called "waterzooi" a kind of soup with vegetables and chicken. I found it was delicious and the price was not expensive! The waitress came to offer an additional portion of soup, but the first portion was enough satisfying!

I'm a local and I when I visit this place I mostly go for the beef stew as I believe this place has the best Ghent's beef stew in the centre. Additionally, it's very cosy to sit there, price/quality ratio is excellent and the service is really pleasant as well.
