“For those who are in for something different”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2014

We had not made reservations and we were lucky to get one of 2 remaining tables for 2.

The first thing we noticed when entering the restaurant was the very friendly and welcoming staff and the big disco ball hanging from the sealing... good times!

Although you can eat a là carte, it is clear that the restaurant works on a menu basis.
You can opt for a 5 or a 7 "tastings" menu, meaning that you will be served 5 or 7 different (small) dishes from the menu. The great thing is that you don't know what you are going to get! You can indicate however if there is something on the menu that you really like or that you really don't like (maximum 1 dish each).
So if you don't like surprises or if you are not open to new tastes, this may not be the place for you...

We selected the 5 tastings menu and definitely wanted the scallops, there were no dishes that we didn't like. Now the fun part started, we were offered some amazing and surprising dishes (many of them vegetarian) but each one a little piece of art in itself. The tempura of dill with a cooled, soft cauliflower creme was simply amazing!

We ended up receiving 6 dishes instead of 5 (no extra charge) and we left feeling this was a place worth visiting again.

Note that the restaurant can get a bit loud once it is full and people had a few drinks, but it didn't bother me too much.

Nice place, friendly and helpful staff speaking Dutch but also French or English. The pizzas were wonderful, the place is nice and in the center. We had a perfect evening, thank you!

“Really,really BAD!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 November 2013

I was really surprised by the bad quality of this restaurant.
Firstly, after they realized we were not going to eat the "full" menu, their sympathy was not the same as in the beginning. Secondly, they serve the food in very small portions, so if you don't take the menu you will be surprised by a very small portion (they didn't mention in the beginning it was that small). then, the MOST IMPORTANT: the food was really terrible! we ordered a focaccia and a tempura as starters. The "main dish" was a pumpkin risotto, which was really salty and didn't taste good at all!" The wine was also not good. I really don't recommend this restaurant.

“A very different experience.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2013

A girl friend and I chose to try Ghent for a long weekend. We hoped to find a rather more unique experience than the usual sight seeing destinations. It was an excellent choice and this restaurant was one of the most memorable parts of our trip.
I note that the reviews that came up on Trip Advisor are about Pizza, we too thought that we were about to dine in a Pizza restaurant. In fact Eat-Love have 2 restaurants and the Tastings on Onderberg is truly unique. The restaurant feels rather like a private house, the decor is smart and contemporary. We were a little nervous as there was no English translation of the menu but no problem our waiter spoke perfect English. The first clue that we were not in a pizza restaurant came when he said "I'll explain the concept".
The menu at Eat Tastings is designed for sharing we were guided in choosing a selection of starters and mains. The food was excellent, the wines likewise. After our super meal the owner came to speak to us and seemed genuinely pleased that a couple of English tourists had found and really enjoyed her restaurant. I can certainly recommend Ghent for a short break and Eat Tastings to provide the highlight of your holiday!

“excellent and original pizza's”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2013

We went on a Sunday evening. The restaurant was full, fortunately we had made a booking. The interior is not really special, but what is very nice is the pizza formulae: on the one hand, they have very original pizza combination, on the other hand you can combine 2 different choices in 1 pizza without no extra cost. Finally, you can also ask a combination of a small pizza with an accompanying salad.
We really enjoyed it.
