We previously had dinner in the "sister" restaurant "Allegro ma non troppo" in Aalst. And although we enjoyed that dinner we were pleasantly surprised. This restaurant offers a very relax setting: art nouveau decoration, enough space and the music we like ( some people call it classic) As appetizers we had pheasant (very nice with pine nuts and mustard) ,...

I am shocked at the previous reviews. We popped in on Wednesday 28th Dec to book for New years Eve. We were treated in a courteous & friendly manner. Which continued on 31st Dec. The food was exceptional, the service prompt & friendly, the evening was well paced, our wine glasses were kept topped up. Everyone was relaxed & took... More

We were invited out to dinner by friends who chose this restaurant. All started well, We all ordered drinks, a single main course and a bottle of wine. They brought a couple of "mis en bouche" to accompany our drinks and there were olives and other nibbles on the table. The food when it came was of a very high... More

Service was very slow (saturday night) and our waiter was inexperienced and untrained - fish dishes (when they arrived) were excellent however meat dishes were not enjoyed. Expensive and should be much better. Not recommended.

Me and my girl went for WE in wonderful Ghent, marvellous city btw. We decided to hit Allegro Moderato, this was (by far) the worst part of the trip. Basic cooking, poor materials, food shaped to looked special but really basic and poor quality ingredients. Really BAD service and 2:30 for the 1st, 2nd and dessert to be served. We... More

We went to Allegro on a Friday night and took a la carte choices. Service was extremely slow. We received our entrees after an hour and our main 1h45 after we arrived. The food itself was alright, but nothing great and definitely not worth the price tag.

One of the best meals and experiences I've had in a long time! The venue is gorgeous and the service was outstanding. My friend and I spoiled ourselves with the 5-course set menu with wine pairing. Chef Hicham Balafrej (we asked to meet him) whipped out creative, delicious, and inspiring dishes. Our waiter (Max) and the owner (Eddy Pycke) were... More

I visited here with a friend on a whim on our first night in Ghent. The restaurant is lush and beautiful with a really romantic vibe (lucky we're good friends!). The service from owner Eddy and max was exceptional. Very attentive, friendly and Max had a wonderful knowledge of the wine we had paired with our meal. Would definitely return,... More

I went here the first time for lunch and for 25 euro, I ate a three course meal like a queen. I went the second time for dinner on my birthday - and was treated to samples, and wine, and after dinner drinks, too. The staff is professional and charming. The ambience is elegant. The food is superb! It's not... More

I had dinner in this nice restaurant. Nothing to say about the location, forniture and style. Everything very accurate. But I thing the food, according to the price, was not special. The menu does is quite poor with not so many choices. We didn't take starters we had the main dish only and we were not satisfied. I had the... More
