This restaurant is situated in a beautiful location, overlooking the main canal through Ghent. It has a number of tables outside which we sat at even though in January, the temperature was quite low. There are heaters and blankets to combat the cold. We only...More

There are a number of rooms in this restaurant. At the back are two warm and comfortable rooms with fires which make you feel very much at home. At the front is a simpler room which has a stunning view of the Graslei guildhouses along...More

This place is worth it just for the patio which overlooks the canals. Be advised if you're sensitive to smoke it's permitted in outdoor restaurant spaces in Belgium. It's hard to give a fair review of this restaurant because the electricity was partially out and...More

Lovely setting both inside & outside. The service was extremely slow and staff not very friendly. Food was average / good however I think they rely on their location.

Very much enjoyed by a party of six - one of whom was vegetarian, and delighted to find vegetarian wines available. For those who don't know, many wines have animal extracts, e.g. gelatin (remember mad cow disease?!) and fish swim bladder etc, added as fining...More
