Good place for the market menu or price value menu on monday, not for fancy dinner. Friendly staff, nice surroundings but mediocre (average score) food.

Even better: on Monday Kersentuin serves a 3 course surprise menu at 24Euro pp instead of 48. In general staff is very friendly and... More

My family and I were staying in a rental house on the outskirts of Ghent when we happened across the De Kersentuin brasserie for dinner. I will admit that as this was our first trip to Belgium, we found the restaurant hours a little odd for the entire region - closings on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and off starting hours. anyway...
