i will keep this brief :
the food, the setting and the service are all top notch!
The restaurant is located in the epicenter of old ghent, so surroundings are also worth the visit.

Here is the place to go in Ghent if you like lobster. The way the chef prepares it, is just a fest for your tastebuds. They also make sure you don't have too much work left to eat it, so it's not like you have to break your food into thousands of pieces if you actually want to eat. A lot of it is already broken, to make it easier and more pleasant for you. As for the other dishes: they are perfect as well. They only use fine food of good quality, which is of course translated into the lovely flavours. The extravagant owner takes it on himself to make you as comfortable as possible, though the original setting itself already adds up to a lovely evening. Must go!

Nice dinner experience. Nothing negative to say about our visit. Good food and good company. Yes it is expensive but you get also value.

I have visited this restaurant on a single occasion for a dinner.
As said,to describe inerior as ecclectic is a gross understratement.The rooms are overflowing with objects,in an attempt to create bourjois sense of wealth and taste.Not everybody would like it,but effort may be appreciated.This is a place to eat lobsters and mainly lobsters.
There are couple of options on the menu,staff is very helpful in explaining the virtues of each preparation-you simply can not go wrong.Quality of produce is very high,cook knows,what he (or,perharps,she) is doing,final result is amazingly good.I had a lobster in Maine two weeks before and,still,this served at House of Eliott was supreme.
Wine (by glass,as I was alone) was good,but not excellent,service knowledgeable,professional and courteous.
Overall experience somehow between "very good" and "excellent".
Warning : booking is essential and please read carefully the "open for business" schedule,as establishments in Gent enjoy a bit awkward opening hours.

Great lobster. Excellent atmosphere and really helpful attentive service.

You don't have to eat Lobster here and there is a good menu, but it seems a shame to go here if you are not coming here for the Lobster.

Great intimate restuarant with scenic view by the water
