Lots of Belgium shuts down in August :( (which is unknown anywhere else) and this place was shutting the next day so they had a very limited food menu. However, the food we did have was the best of our 4 days. Entrecote & pork were just great. No problems at all & had they been open, we would certainly... More

This seems like a great place when you're trying to catch a movie 20 paces to the right but the night we ventured there, we waited 45 minutes for food to be served and scrambled into our movie late. The beef stew was OK and someone else liked the American raw beef. Don't count on the service.

Near the cinema and De Planck bar this is a locals bar that gets in the good beer guide. Offering lots of beers and gins, you can also eat the beer snacks of sausage and cheese or something more hearty. A little walk out of the centre

I'd like the service to improve a bit though, because the last times I visited, we had to get our drinks at the bar after waiting for more than 10 minutes at our table (which was located right next to the...

We have had a drink here several times. The atmosphere is really nice, I like the top of an old copper vat over the bar especially. Beer selection not bad and if you can get a friendly local to translate the story on the menu it's rather interesting. Recently we ate here, I had the stoofpotje, it was really good.... More

This is a café close to cinemas, so it's busy always. It has 6 different tab beers, very good selection. Because of its architecture, it's a bit noisy. You can say that it's a typical belgian café. I found the service simply satisfied but the beer selection very good. Unfortunately, there is no terrace so it's kind of winter café

This place was about a two-minute walk from our B and B and was one of the places recommended to us by our hostess. She said it had simple Belgian food and snacks, loads of beers and prices were reasonable. And she was right! It's also right next to the huge Kineopolis cinema, so I am guessing it's a meeting...

De Brouwzaele is located right next to the Decascoop cinema complex in Ghent. Meeting up with a friend for a visit to the cinema, we decided to have dinner and some drinks here before the film. De Brouwzaele offers an interesting interior with friendly staff, and the menu has a decent selection of beers: more than you'll find in a... More
