You have to try the lunch... Every time I am in the city of Gent ( twice per year) I like to have a lunch at Carte Blanche<. The food is not only excellent, it is also a delight for the eye... Thanks Paul and Bart to make such lovely food... and thanks Waltyer to serve it with the smile...

My wife and I have been going here for 9 years in a row to celebrate my BD. We have never been dissapointed. Excellent food, excellent service. In terms of price/quality this place is extremely hard to beat. The cheese platter as dessert -with some rare local cheeses- is especillay recommended.

The food was delicious and the service was very attentive. Only down, with the spotlight it got very hot after a while

We visited for my father's 70th birthday and were treated to a fantastic meal. The restaurant dining room is small, they can do about 28 covers in a seating, and the kitchen is even smaller, but the magic they work within this space is amazing. Everything is stylish, modern, elegant without being cold and aloof as you’d expect from ritzy... More

It included a glass of champagne and coffee, fyi. On... More

We had droven by this restaurant a couple of times already, and we decided to pay it a visit.

Carte Blanche was recommended by the owners of our B&B Ganda Rooms. They did not steer us wrong. The food and service were impeccable. The menu is prix fixe with choices between a lobster dinner, a game dinner, and the menu of the day. We chose the daily menu which included a white fish in a light sauce, roast venison... More
