Like this bar/restaurant. It has definitely traveler atmosphere. The interier is more african style, but in modern time :) they have really nice beer, tea or coffee. If I will be in Ghent I will go here again!

We had booked a table for five, we were shown to a small table for four & a small footstool was placed at the end with no room really for a placemat & cutlery. We had quite a wait for our food which was understandable as it was busy. When it arrived one dish was a wrong order so was... More

For a so called international place which incorporates world cuisine the food we had was really bland. Chili con carne should have some chili in it hence the name and the pasta dish was very bland too even the chorizo was quite tasteless. Friendly place but in future we'll just go there for a drink.

I had walked by here a couple of times and it looked busy and cozy so stopped in for dinner with a friend. Tasty beer, good food and good service.

I like the place since it has really nice atmosphere and it's very international. The downside was that it was toooo loud and too hot on the upper floor. Food was very tasty, but maybe a bit expensive for student budget. All in all, I would recommend it. There were some problems during our visit, all the lights and music... More

Very crowded and very good vibes in this eatery, be aware that you cannot reserve. 18h is the kitchen open. Be on time, drink some nice cocktails. Fair prices. Not lots of tourists, always a good sign. Portions are OK.

Quite a limited lunch menu. Tapas menu in the evening has more choices. We had Scampi Andalusia style & lamb burger. Cool vibe and chilled music. Cosy ambiance with different seating areas. Specials were in Dutch only and the waiter couldn't translate for us...a friendly person at the next table kindly helped us out :)

We popped in for a drink, based largely on the interesting interior. The service was slow, and fairly impersonal, but non the less we enjoyed our visit. I would go back.

Probably a good bar, but we had the unpleasant experience of being waited on by the rudest waiter I have had the displeasure of meeting.
