We were three couples led by a Gent resident and picked the chef’s menu: 6 course with cheese and mouth tuning to move on. Got red and white wine, and zoooom! It’s not easy to please a group of extensive travel experience and taste adventures,...More

Old-fashioned restaurant with classic interior. For the amount of food they serve, it's definitely overpriced: 60-70 euro for 5 courses dinner, every course is really small. The food is enjoyable but not fantastic. It's very stuffy inside due to a lot of candles and poor...More
