Nice restaurant, good eating. Very expensive for what you get . When I asked the Turkish waitress the wife of the Italian chef , why is so expensive? She answered very bad and started jelling to me in an strange language .

We went for dinner at this place knowing its classic, unique and expensive. So we were not really going to eat & pay anything average. The interior is an ultimate classic. The chairs, tables, the huge piano in the back. It was a Saturday night but for the entire evening we were the only two customers inside - never a... More

a beautiful house, built a century ago where an Italian chef prepares delicious food of top quality according to the classical rules of French and Italian cuisine. A limited menu but completed with a large choice of possibilities depending on the market and the season. Very nice choice of wines

I am so pleased I didn't really research De Gouden Klok before going. I've had the privilege to dine in some special places in Ghent (Flemish cuisine is a well-kept secret!) yet everything about this place was surprising. Quirky yet without gimmicks - a perfect showcase for what the chef does best. Outstanding wine list too. I cannot wait to... More

One of the table guests told us "you can really surprise a natural born Ghent-inhabitant with this restaurant". That summarizes this excellent restaurant. Run by an Italian chef, you do not look at you menu card, you just ask the chef what he recommends. Agree with his suggestions and you will be overloaded with magnificent courses. His specialty is duck... More

An amazing restaurant, with an ideal location easy to reach nearby Gent sint-Pieters station, has its own parking, and a breath taking Garding. The food the service will add to your memory an unforgetable experience, that is the reason that I keep comming to the Gouden Klok often.

Even if the food without the great food, this restaurant would be worth the trip.The food is well prepared and beautifully presented and the service excellent. The menu includes seafood such as salmon and lobster. The inside of the building is extraordinary, with hand painted tile walls, white linens, dark wood and soft lighting. There is also a quiet garden... More
