“Brilliant”
Reviewed 9 July 2012

Situated in Patershol, this is a real find, we ate on a Saturday night and the service and food were excellent. All female front of house staff and the place really works well. The restaurant has an old "bit" over looking the street and a new "bit" overlooking the garden/courtyard area, personally the "old" bit for me was better as it was quieter, by this I mean in the "new" bit the sound absorpsion isn't as good, also more covers mean more noise. Well worth a visit, be sure to book, early.

“Great food, cute restaurant, but limited English”
Reviewed 29 June 2012

Very cute restaurant that was filled with locals. Definitely not a tourist trap. Food was great, although the menu is only in Flemish and getting translations for dishes was not too easy.

“Charming place in the historical center, great price - quality”
Reviewed 26 May 2012

The historical center of Ghent might have to many tourist traps, especially in "Patershol" area.
This is certainly not one of them.

Living in Ghent and eating in restaurants at least a couple of time a week, this is one on my shortlist where I do keep comming back.

Expect classical cooking with a twist and a correct service.
They don't accept larger groups wich is great for service and quality (and a pity if you are a larger group)

Do make a reservation
go for the menu with it's excellent price-quality

“michelin:best price-qwality”
Reviewed 3 April 2012

small restaurant in the heart of the Patershol. Always full so better reserve ahead. Menu for 35 euro is a always a good choice. The chef worked in one of the best restaurants of Belgium before he started here.
