For the life of me I have no idea why this restaurant was so busy on a Monday night! Are the neighbors that bad!?! According to information we picked up at the Tourist Information office, this brasserie has been in the family for generations and is one of the oldest in Ghent, providing you with an honest and authentic night out. I ate typical Flemish "stoverij" (stew) while my girlfriend had Steak Tartare (raw minced beef). While the meat of both our meals was ok, the rest of the food was poor. The "friet" (fries/chips) were soggy (a crime in Belgium!), and the salad came right out of a 1950's home cookbook. Perhaps the great grandmother still decides how the food should be presented? Simply said, it was truly uninspired - and that for €50. Skip the coffee as well, I think my double espresso was taken right out of the river running through Ghent. For a city known as one of the culinary hot-spots of Belgium, this was disappointing, even for a simple brasserie.
