“Beg for food, what a terrible service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014 via mobile

Worst place so far after 3 countries in a round trip through Europe. It's a disrespect to customers the kind of service this place has. Food is great, but you'll wait for up to 40 min between dishes, and beg for specialties like shrimp, picanha or lamb. I believed Europeans got used to it, if you notice others comments to analyze. For us, paying almost 30 euros plus drinks and dessert, it's not worth or you need to be in a great mood to challenge your patience. What a pity!

“Pampas Misses the Mark”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014

This was the worst dining experience of our Europe vacation. The "all you can eat" menu was offset by the need to beg waiters and waitresses to bring food and drink to our table. What little did come was delicious, but of all the items, we were only offered about half of what was available. Big price, poor service.

“Not for Vegetarians”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014

This review is based on two visits,both during the business trips,both diner time.
The restaurant in question is a sort of European variations on Brasilian theme.
It is spacious place,fairly simply decorated,very friendly and efficient staff.Duration of the meal depends on patron needs,tempo of service is adjusted by a simple change of colours of the disk at the table.There are two menus - meat and fish,should one select meat,there will be one or two servings of fish anyway (and vice versa).Novelty is a serving of griilled pineaple,quite delicious,indeed.Wine list is not too extensive,but quite satisfactory,quality of wines - the table range,good and honest,they do not pretend to be something they are not.
Location is on the fringe of old town,just across of the Castle.
Notice : booking is essential,chances of getting in without are quite slim.
Recommended.

“Good food at a fair price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2014 via mobile

Las Pampas is 'all you can eat' at 27 EUR. So if you have a big stomach, this would be your place to be in the centre of Ghent. Waiters are friendly and the quality of the food was good. They work in shifts (bigger groups come either at 6 pm or at 9 pm.) We were there for a bachelorette party and asked if a small surprise (such as a small ice-cream with fireworks) would be possible as a little extra but we got a severe 'no'. That was the only disappointment for our evening. Otherwise: good food on a good location.
