My wife and i had lunch here. The staff were great, very enthusiastic about the food which was interesting and really good. The same could not be said of the wines which are 'natural'. The first two wines i sent back, the third i drank but it was barely drinkable; however i didn't have the heart to reject it for... More

Had a lovely dinner with my mom and dad. Had the set menu of 4-5 courses. Combinations on the menu were sure not what I would have picked myself but loved every dish!! As a surpsie, we got an extra course after our main course from the chef which was duck and probably the best duck I have ever tasted!... More

Great atmosphere and service. This is a foodie's paradise. Great cooking with exceptional ingredients. We went for the taster menu, which was great value, even with the current poor exchange rate. My mother who was with us, is pretty conservative, very meat & two veg, when it comes to food, but even she really enjoyed it. A couple of times... More

Had dinner with colleagues on Tues 15th. Restaurant is a converted butchers shop so quite quirky. Tasting menu, so fixed choice. Slightly pricey, but not bad for Europe. Wine list ok. Food is good, sensible portions, good flavours and well prepared. Would recommend a visit if you are in Gent.

We made a booking online a few days before arriving in Ghent. This was easily done through their online booking system, and made things very easy. My fiancé and I arrived and took our seats and the bar on the evening. The staff were very friendly and talked us through the menu. We did the 4 course tasting menu, and... More

Not honest. Food is okay, not great, but what made it a worse experience to us was they cheated us on the main course that our main course was served with only one tiny little piece of lamb meat. I am not one of those who demand large portion, but if the main course has only a half length of... More

Our place was at the bar which was a cozy relaxed place to sit.Not in the back where it was a bit noisy. Food was served rather quick but was delicious. Portions not too big nor small. Just enough to enjoy the entire course. Wine as well was served fast but was from a very nice selection. We enjoyed it... More

What a great place this is. Worth looking for it and book when you know you will be in the area. Ticks every box. Totally recommend De Vitrine for several reasons: 1. Cozy little bar area to eat or have a drink before lunch or dinner. I opted for a delicious beer paired with some of their snacks or tapas.... More

Maybe my expectations were to high but I did not feel satisfied when leaving the restaurant. First the decoration: non existing. They used an old butcher shop and put some tables in it, and there you go you have a restaurant. It is original but is this the only goal of a new restaurant? The tiles on the wall only... More

I visited De Vitrine for the 3rd time at the end of January. I had been raving to my friend about how amazing the restaurant was (I posted a rave review here after my first trip). The food is still great, but we had very poor service on the night we dined. We waited for more than 30 minutes between... More
