We where searching for a nice place to lunch during the Ghent Festivities and found Restaurant De Graslei beween the many other restaurants in the neighbourhood.
First of all : we where really impressed with the fantastic service we got from this young team. They really did a great job !!! We have got a nice table outside with a great view. The food & the wine was also really good : we all took different dishes (salads and local specialities) and we where all happy with our choice. We will come back !!!

In Gent for just one night and recommended to eat at the De Graslei. The location is good (alongside the river), the food was good, the service was good - in fact everything the way we like it.
It is very popular so don't go along expecting a quiet romantic meal, but if you want a lively atmosphere alongside the river give the De Graslei a try.

Went here with 2 friends and had a wonderful early evening dinner. Staff very attentive and food all very good quality. Their version of Stoverij (Flemish stew/beef carbonnade) was superb as was the fish (sole). Good location and ambience. You won't go far wrong here as a varied menu - one of us is a vegetarian for example and this wasn't an issue. Really enjoyed this restaurant.

We chose to stop in based on the trip advisor reviews, but were a little put off we we saw the location. It seemed like a typical tourist trap you would find in any European city, but were we surprised! While surveying for a spot to sit, we were greeted by a server who said we could wait for a table. Once one was available, the staff had us wait a few more minutes for a table in the corner so that our baby would not be around smokers. Very thoughtful! The food was also excellent. We opted for fresh fried sardines, Flemish Beef stew, and salmon. All three were fantastic, with the stew being the best I have had in Belgium. This place is highly recommended!
