I might be a stupid old traveler, but after fifty years around the world, I ordered wine per inch for the first time. Getting there is half of the fun. The 3 Biggetjes is situated in “Het Patershol” the famous old part of the city of Ghent...sometimes like a labyrinth, foreigners can easily get lost. The atmosphere in the restaurant... More

This was, by far, the best meal we had during a three week vacation!! We ate at many Michelin starred places but this was the outstanding winner. The place is very welcoming and intimate. Our meal of duck breast with herb butter was incredible from start to finish. Even the side dishes were wonderful. Breads were outstanding, both entrees were... More

One of the best restaurants in 't Patershol. The food quality is top notch. You may pay quite a bit for your food but it's worth it. If you take the menu you can get a good deal!

3 Biggetjes is a very nice restaurant in the old city centre of Gent. It's very small and feels personal. Service is good but it would be nice if the ladies servicing the tables would smile a bit more and take a bit more time to explain what it is on the plate. Due to dietary requirements the chef made... More

Staying in Gent for our anniversary we had dinner in this restaurant. Through the whole evening we experienced pleasant surprises altering with disappointments. We started with a glass of champange and some appetizers: smoked salmon, some rather dry dogfish and a realy tasteful mousse of whiting. As a starter I had a surprising combination of brill and cauliflower. Very delicate... More

We took the daily menu + the optional extra of bubbles and hapjes. The food was tasty and well timed. There was several options of wine by the glass. The 'front' room had a lovely warm feel on a damp evening. Candles glowing and looking out to the streetscape. The back room looked lovely also but more of an 'atrium'... More

We enjoyed lunch at 3 Biggetjes. The chef and his mother make quite a team. He is a wonderful cook. The food was delicious. The service was like being part of a Belgian family. It was a nice experience.

We went several times for lunch and dinner/ Each time, it was very good value for money and, moreover, it is very well situated in the Patershol area.

We were invited for lunch by friends living in Ghent...the weather was nice, the restaurant looked cozy BUT to be honest it was our worst culinary experience we had in Belgium. We took the fixed menu, which was very reasonably priced at 34 Euro/p. For mains I took the partridge (patrijs), looked nice however the meat was still raw, definitely... More
