“Excellent way to try Belgian cuisine”
Reviewed 1 January 2013 via mobile

I live in Gent and I visit this place a lot.The service is nice and I love the tapas-initiative.
This restaurant is a great place for tourists if they want to explore the Belgian cuisine because you get 5 to 7 different tapas (as an entree and again 5 to 7 as a main). So you can try it all.

“Lovely Belgian Tapas”
Reviewed 6 February 2012

After leaving one resturant (because you needed to per-book food!) we were starting to loose hope that rather than eating local food we were going to end up getting a curry. Luckily we stumbled across this resturant.

My partner and I are fond of the tapas style of eating as you try lots of different dishes, so this resturant was ideal for us. The menu was in Flemish but the waiter was very helpful and explained what everything was. He even came back when our food came to explain again what the dishes were.

We went for the larger tapas menu with 7 starters and 7 main dishes. The food was lovely and we really enjoyed being able to sample so many different dishes. We didn't have a dessert but our coffees came with some Belgian chocolates and a little cake. Overall a great meal and glad we stumbled across this place.

“Good Belgian food in a new way”
Reviewed 6 December 2011

Although from the outside Tiva didn't seem that inviting to us at the beginning, the sound of Belgian Tapas drew us in. And a good choice it was. We had a lovely dinner and enjoyed some glasses of nice wine. Our friendly waiter brought us good conversation and inventive tapas, which were very nice - a good combination of fish and meat. Probably also veggie-dishes are possible. After the normal amount (5 cold and 5 hot), dessert wouldn't fit our full bellies anymore so I couldn't tell you if those are any good.
