A warm, local, informal setting for excellent stoveriij stew and mussels,and fantastic house red. Lovely staff. Highly recommended!
We were a couple who went since the traditional soup was recommended by the tourism office. The inside was interesting in an old fashioned way. There are parts of exposed brick and old fashioned cooking utensils on the walls. The service was good. The problem was the food-cost ratio. Yikes! A simple bowl of chicken soup was 21.95 Euros.

Having read previous reviews in Trip Advisor, we knew that we should probably order the waterzooi (fish stew) so that we could taste an authentic Belgian dish. Although this dish may not sound appetizing, it was truly heavenly. The stew was served in a large ceramic tureen which kept it steaming hot while two of us shared bowl after bowl... More
When you enter the restaurant you are immediately engulfed by beer aromas. We ate the rabbit with prumes and the typical flemish beef stew. Both were prepared with a trappist beer. The rabbit was superbly presented and the meat was very tender.
We were drinking at a bar next to the restaurant and wandered in to Chez Leontine for dinner. It is a quaint restaurant on the canal. I had the rabbit and my husband had the fish stew. The rabbit was cooked in one of the dark Belgian beers and it was so tender that the meat fell off of the... More
Had a booking for 8pm, were given a seat at the entrance of the restaurant. waited at the front for some time until someone bothered to show us our seats. After receiving our menus, waited 10 minutes but nobody came by to say hello or offer us a drink. so we left for somewhere else.
We wanted to try some of the local Flemish dishes and were pleasantly surprised. The fish lasagna was absolutely delicious and the abbey dark beer and fresh bread a perfect combination. The decor is wood and has an old historical house feel to it. We sat upstairs and could look down through the middle floor in the centre. They have... More
The beer list has over 300 items, believe it or not! The menu is rather sparse compared to the beer list but the food was tasty and the service was relaxed. No rush at all. In fact on Friday night we spent three hours there and nobody hustled us about anything. S, sit back and enjoy the waterzooi (either chicken... More
My friend who lives in the area took us there for authentic Flemish food. I ordered rabbit meat with beer stew and she got a vegetable and chicken soup. The portions were huge! One dish would have filled both of us. I loved the stew - meat was tender, you can taste the fruit sauce, and it's not salty! The... More
Given the overwhelming options of where to eat in Ghent we were determined to avoid the more touristy plaza restaurants and find something with more local character and food (not to mention price). Chez Leontine really fit the bill. Slightly hard to find just to the right of the bridge crossing over to the castle on the banks of the... More
