My friend and I took a day trip to Ghent during our 4-day trip in Brussels. I booked lunch at Vrijmoed, the only restaurant with 2 Michelin stars in Ghent, well in advance.
The entrance of Vrijmoed was discreet. We even needed to press the bell outside in order to be let into the building where the restaurant is located.
We picked the Menu Vrijmoed with 4 courses. The food turned out to be the best we'd during our trip to Belgium. All the dishes were beautifully presented, prepared with the finest seasonal ingredients, nicely executed and highly delicious. I particularly loved the entree of North Sea shrimps and the main course of roasted pheasant with salsify and wild mushrooms.
We each added a cheese course which was served before our dessert. It's Stilton ice cream with crumble and a piece of bread with Stilton in its traditional form.
The service was impeccable. Just like what we can and should expect from a restaurant of this class.
Our meal wasn't cheap. However, given all the good things which I mentioned above, it's good value for money.
I'll eat at Vrijmoed again if I happen to travel to Ghent again in the future.
