We visited here on a Saturday evening. Its amazing! Layout and decor are fantastic. We sat on the second floor, with a great view looking over the rest of the restaurant. Food was a little on the expensive side but very tasty. Cocktails were great!

It is a crowded place. Simple and cozy decoration. The waiters and waitress were very helpful and always do the best for u. Not very friendly but good enough. My dishes were very tasty and good enough. I liked my dinner. I believe that it is little more expensive for this kind of restaurant but I can not say that... More

Oysters! I had 6 of the restaurant's 'Kara Savi' signature oysters, my 90-year old dad went for 9 - he's been there, done it and would probably wear the T-shirt at home. Main course: steak tartare for me (delicious), cod for my dad (delicious). Everything accompanied by a glass of floral Touraine. Ready for another visit.

Came here for dinner for an anniversary. The decor is absolutely splendid, the bar is gorgeous, the staff is actually dressed like waiters (something you don't see very often anymore) and are very friendly. Had a wonderful meal which was surprisingly affordable.

To celebrate the holidays, my mom, dad and I went out for dinner. We went to 't Pakhuis in Ghent, we've already been there a few times so I knew that the food is great there. I was very tired that day so I wasn't hungry at all. I chose to eat Spinach and Ricotta Ravioli and it was very... More

There is not a lot to choose from if you are a vegetarian, nevertheless the quality was good. Just a pity the food was not warm anymore when we received it.

I was strolling through one of the many alleys of the city of Ghent with my family, not knowing that I would discover one of my favorite resaurants of all time, when we suddenly saw a beautiful revolving door made of glass and accompanied by a huge window. A label on top of the factory finished window frame said: “Pakhuis”.... More

I read the reviews, and expected much more. They play with the palate, seems to suit most, but to me, whatever they added took away from the taste and flavour of the main meals itself, which were undercooked. Trying too hard to be different, and my opinion, got it hopelessly wrong. Expensive, by all standards, so it should have been... More

My wife & I hadn't been here for 10 years and we were so pleased nothing has changed. Perfect service, great wines, house beer & wonderful food. This place is really good for sea food but the red meats are also good. A friendly buzz in here; families, couple & old friends meeting but you need to book. Easily done... More
