Great location with the lightest, most delicate waffles ever experienced. We kept coming back for more.

My friend and I were looking for a place for dinner and without reservation during Christmas season that is almost impossible. After getting turned down at a couple of places without the options of leaving our names so that we can come back later, Passion was showed that service and warmth still exist in Ghent. Passion's service is great! Warm... More

We had a quick lunch after a sightseeing tour of the city. I have finally tasted the typical dish called "waterzooi" a kind of soup with vegetables and chicken. I found it was delicious and the price was not expensive! The waitress came to offer an additional portion of soup, but the first portion was enough satisfying!

I'm a local and I when I visit this place I mostly go for the beef stew as I believe this place has the best Ghent's beef stew in the centre. Additionally, it's very cosy to sit there, price/quality ratio is excellent and the service is really pleasant as well.

Beautiful and impeccable room. Fine white linen and comfortable chairs. Perfect service. Had the most beautiful hot chocolate and the most deliciously, smooth chocolaty pancake that blended so well with the ice cream ball. Overall perfect!

Food very disappointing. My husband had the Pasta which was soggy...he did say the prawns were nice but tasted like they'd been cooked on a grill that had also had meat cooked on it . I had the chicken vol a vent ...tasted like a supermarket chicken pie.

We were two tourists come in from the winter rain for a hearty meal. And that we did find!!! Passions' interior warmed us to the core and meal was EXCEPTIONAL!!!!! The best choice was the Waterzooi, the casserole of chicken. A tender fragrant broth of gentle spices and scallion. The chicken was soooo tender and the broth was nothing short... More

Very quaint and quirky place... with velvet curtains at the front door and the decor was reminiscent of a luxury living room!! I only wanted... More

Visiting Ghent for the day, walking around the centre taking in the sights and decided to have lunch. Saw Passion and seeing it was quite blustery we chose here because of their indoor dining area. It was lovely, had character, a huge bowl of red gladys graced the bar and the facilities were impeccably clean. Service was excellent and the... More

You don't expect in some cities to have great restaurants bang in the middle of the tourist areas, but in Ghent nothing is ordinary! We popped in for what was our first meal on my return to this city, expecting a simple, decent priced but unspectacular meal and yet as soon as I sat down this was shattered immediately! Service...
