Very good atmosphere in this interestingly decorated restaurant. Surprise! We ate ribs and really enjoyed them. They kept coming and our group kept eating them. Very good fayre, and good service. Recommended for groups, not sure it would be like just for a couple. The atmosphere was great, but we were with a great group.

Nice and lively restaurant in the city centre with good grilled meat, good atmosphere, and very good prices compared to other restaurants of the same area. Nothing classy or refined, but honest dishes and large portions at a reasonable price for Belgium.

All you can eat RIBS. Guess I should have listened to my inner self. Nothing served up in glutenous portions has ever been truly enjoyable. Jacket potato was excellent, ribs had texture of fat chewy gristle. Service OK but not sense of pleasure and charging 2.5 euros for a glass of tap water! As a tourist I expect to make... More

this restaurant is mostly known for its pork ribs although other dishes are served. the ribs are quite good and you can eat as many as you want for a reasonable price. it's a place very suitable for large groups.

This restaurant has a great old world atmosphere, and the food is simple and delicious. The price is very reasonable and you know value for money in Belgium and great food because it's always busy. I don't like ribs normally but the sauce here is tingling. But the filling for the baked potato is amazing. Unique and delicious

Caution...this restaurant is not for food snobs. It is a friendly, casual, robust and happy place to enjoy a slab of ribs, a side of salad and a delectable baked potato. Dig in and people watch to your heart's content. There is a big bottle of quaffable red wine on the table...help yourself. You will be charged by very affordable... More

This place is normally very busy so try to book in advance. You can basically have ribs or steak so not one for vegetarians! The ribs are all you can eat and just keep coming until you force them to stop. It is very good value for money considering the Ghent is not a cheap please generally. The wine is... More

They serve you your ribs and baked (jacket) potatoe - which has a curry-type butter on it. Personally, I would have just preferred the butter. The ribs were good, a dry rub. I did not see any BBQ sauce on the tables, so that was interesting, but the ribs were very good.

Excellent meal. Great ambience. Ribs were succulent. Great idea to have a bottle of wine and pay for what you have .

Thank Gail B
