The restaurant is great for such a small town as Ghent. It has rich, beautiful interior, and nice garden outside.

Despite many negative reviews, staff (including the host lady) was friendly. Waiter was adorable.
I would recommend this restaurant for special occasion only, since it's quite pricy. But food is great, indeed.

My new husband and I decided to treat ourselves to a visit to Restaurant Jan van de Bon on our short honeymoon stay in Ghent. We enjoyed a wonderfully diverse meal in a beautiful setting. Our hosts went out of their way to explain the menu to us (as we don't speak Dutch and have limited French). Excellent wines were recommended to complement our different choices. Overall the meal was an experience we will never forget and was the highlight of a memorable honeymoon in Ghent.

Unplanned visit and delighted by experience over lunch. Fantastic set menu for €45 which gave a great sampler for the style of the chef and restaurant. Very innovative. Great flavours. Much imagination on each plate. Setting really works - large town house with grand contemporary rooms and plenty of space between tables. Striking and colourful art. Recommend highly. Just watch prices of wines by glass.

Jan Van den Bon is situated in an elegant house near a park. The interor is very elegant and stylish. When we were there most tables were occupied. The service is excellent, the hostell charming with a delightful touch of eccentricity. We opted for the a la carte menu and had nice portions of delightful food. The garden is delightful. It is quite pricey but the experience is worth it.

Colleagues have given me a positive review about their experience there. So I took my wife there for her birthday.

The service was exquisite and met the expectations of high end restaurants. Walking through the very well tamed garden was a delight specially looking at the various seasonings the cook grows. The food was very well prepared and creative. Outstanding attention from the waiters. As it is a family owned business, the staff wants to make the guests feel comfortable and since we weren't there for business, they showed that they cared by trying to get to know you. It was quite lovely! Price is on the money.

I highly recommend this place for a classy and intimate cullinary experience.
