Took my parents there the first night they arrived in Gent as they were hungry after travelling most of the day. We had not booked a table but luckily got one as a group had just left and the place was very busy. The food is excellent! We had some tapas to start then moved on to the grill. All the meat was so tender and you do get literally all you can eat! The pineapple was also superb. Nice salad and chips along with it. Would definitely recommend this place and I can't wait to go back

The formula is clear: you pay about 27 euro and you can eat as much as you want. And yes, the meat is really good . But ... the place is totally over-crowed, the acoustics are really bad (a nice conversation is impossible), the staff is rather unfriendly (or overworked?), and the side dishes (salad) are not at all tasty. You need to make reservations to get in and customers have to stick to the time table. Your seat is already promised to the next customer! In sum, unless you are really craving for some nice BBQ meat, this place has too littke to offer.

We ate here last weekend and it was packed with locals. A great place to take teenage kids who love to eat , excellent value . We had well-made caprainhas at 6 euro each and then were given a plate of mixed brochetta. A bowl of mixed salads and cold vegetables follows, all very tasty and a good accompaniment to the meat . This was excellent quality , better than I was expecting at the price. Salmon, butterfish , chicken and prawns also circulated . The meats were succulent and lean . We filled up quickly due to several rich meals on preceding nights so we could not do it all full justice. At under 60 euro including the cocktails and water this was a very reasonable night out . The owner/manager was friendly and welcoming , like almost everyone we encountered in Ghent . Would certainly recommend this. Our kids would have loved it !

All-you-can-eat type restaurant in the center of Ghent. South-American meats choices were all good, and in fact also the fish options were delicious. Great place for small or larger groups for a carnivore evening.

I was there for dinner with a couple of friends. Friendly staff, nice atmosphere and a wonderful dine concept. It's a all you can eat concept, they offer at your table pieces of meat/fish/shrimps/fruit from a skewer. Every 4 to 5 minutes the offer you something new. Skewers are grilled over charcoal.
Only thing was that they didn't offer us everything that was listed on the menu (missed 2 kinds of meat).
Except that, everything was great!
