My partner and I found this place by pure chance. We were only staying at a local hotel overnight and went out looking for somewhere to eat. There is a great menu, with exquisite dishes and choices, wonderfully cooked food and excellent service. The waitress (owner maybe?) went out of her way to help us in our choices, even going...

Great food for sure. The atmosphere of the restaurant is pretty particular: mix between restaurant, pub, bistro... you name it. But after all this was a very nice surprise for us.

They have a set price for a variety of foods. The meat was fabulous. Our food was Tapas, like in Spain

The dishes were outstanding in every detail, for the combination of tastes as well as for the presentation. My wife has had her own restaurant for over 28 years, we have tried all kinds of restaurants all over the world, most of them on a higher level, and still were surprised to find this rare culinary jewel at only a...

Following good reviews we reserved in this restaurant when we were on weekend in Gent. It was far from the centre but I hoped it would be worth. I had visited first their website and I planned to order their surprise menu. All other menu's must be reserved before. On our evening, we could not order the menu but only... More

When seeing the prices on the menu, I was almost expecting food equal to a star restaurant but the food did not really meet my expectations. It was good, but not overwhelmingly good (which is the feeling I usually do get from a star restaurant.) The very friendly service and cosy atmosphere are however very much worth mentioning.

A truly exceptional evening in every way. We had the 'surprise' set menu. Each course was both a work of art and a culinary delight. The chef is exceptionally talented, putting tremendous flair and innovation into designing each dish, combined with meticulous attention to detail in preparing it. Above all, the flavours were so wonderful that it was a pleasure... More

We often been to more expensive restaurants that do not reach the level of this place. The warm welcome, delicious cuisine and fine wines make this a top place in Ghent in terms of price / quality ratio. We live nearby and now regret that we haven't been before. Definitely worth repeating.

I came to the restaurant the first time attracted by its other name " 't Gezin van Paemel". Those who know Flemish Literature can imagine what I expected and went there just for the fun. But to my pleasant surprise the restaurant really is top class, but quite modest in atmosphere and pricing. But I invited quite some people for... More
