I have known this restaurant for a while now. It is a sure value. If you want non-complicated food in a cosy atmosphere, that's your choice. The food is honest, not thrilling, but I thought the quality/price ratio was ok. We went for the surprise menu, but pitched our own bottle of red wine. Last time when we did the... More

unlikely-looking restaurant from the outside, with entrance more like a 1950s office, but worth negotiating as the food, service and atmosphere is excellent. we had a business dinner here, on recommendation from the hotel, and were all delighted. we asked for chef's choice to save time and avoid the extra time, but were treated to superb 5 course dinner...mostly fresh...

We had a dinner with colleagues in this small character restaurant behind the Capitole. It was recommended by friends and it confirmed fully! we took teh "surprise menu" and the chef did a great job. Fine cuisine; top top. The starter was already perfect with sea bass, artichokes and ponzu. Delicious. The main couse was cod with an excellent combination... More

The food in this place is delicious. The service on the other hand... We didn't really feel welcome. The wine didn't match the menu (as promised) and when we politely said something about it, we got the answer that our remark was "inconvenient". Ordered dessert wine, but we never got it. Waited half an hour for coffee and another half... More

Away from the normal tourist places Faim Fatale offers more than the most critical dinners will expect. To call the food excellent does not do it justice. It is phenomenal to say the least. From the moment you walk in until you walk out, begrudgingly, your senses are treated to wonderful tantilizing smells and tastes. All prepared and served by... More

We went on a saturday-evening. As this restaurant is a bit out of the tourist area, you can really sit down and relax all evening. The surprise menu of the chef really pleased us including the wines.

Make a reservation because if they are not expecting you, the kitchen may close. The food was very very good. I had eaten here a couple of years ago and returned and was not disappointed in the least. I had sweetbreads which are not to be found on many menus, and require some expertise to prepare. Theirs were the best... More

Ghent seems to be making a habit of this sort of venue, privately owned, well trained chefs and carefully chosen and well balanced menus The croquettes which is a simple starter but easy to get wrong were perfect, I would have had them as a main course, but the steak was temtping and again, cooked to perfection Limited menu, personal...

I never knew that in Gent you would find such a refined and amazing restaurant. We had the surprise diner and I can recommend it to everyone with a fine taste for food. The surprise menu was a surprise from the beginning to the end. Fine, fresh food, excellent service, with a smile and a joke every now and then.... More
