Faits Divers has a lot of servers and multiple people will take your order (and you hope they are coordinating behind the scenes). However, when I was there, it took a really long time for the food to show up. When it did, the portion was very large. I could not finish the mussels & fries myself. It was nice... More

Visited the delightful city of Ghent while on a 5-day stay in Brussels - well worth a visit with loads of old world Flemish character and atmosphere, an abundance of large churches and cathedrals etc. Finished the day by eating in Faits Divers - quite a busy restaurant with both local and visiting clientele - which is located in the...

Me and my wife stopped here for dinner on one of our nights in Ghent and were really happy with the food and found it to be good value, but we had a hard time with the majority of the staff. The restaurant was pretty busy but we managed to get a table for two which was squeezed in between... More

Restaurant On the Korenmarkt in Ghent. Good location in the city center. Quick dinner since I didn't had a lot of time. I was afraid that it would be busy since it was a Friday evening around 20h. But we could have a table without reservation. We ordered tagliatelle with shrimps.(see pic) Fast service, food was ok, pasta was a... More

Situated in the town centre and offering food all day. Outside and inside seating Menu in Flemish but a very kindly waiter asked if we needed it translating. We both chose typical Belgian food which was delicious and washed it down with the beer recommendations. Very pleasant way to spend a couple of hours

Food is good, but service is not very good because of very long waiting time. Menu is in Dutch only and only one waitress knows English

The place is not the most clean one, the menu is not friendly, directly is said that you will have to wait, and YES, you have to wait ALOT, about 30 minutes, the cost is a bit higher than other laced in the area, but yu do not really see the benefits.
