All I can say is the food is excellent. Lobster Bisque was good. Bread was good. Steak was cooked to perfection. Pepper sauce was a little dubious. Fashionable restaurant in a great building. My only criticism is that the maitre d’ was obnoxious. Need to...More

Although a very busy weekendnight, service was quick and staff very friendly. The food was nice, and even with us all ordering different plates, both timing and taste were fine. No complaints whatsoever!

Via an atmospheric alleyway between the towers of Ghent, you enter the distinctive Brasserie Pakhuis. You will immediately be overwhelmed by the enormous space, which exudes the atmosphere of the former warehouse. Portuguese architect Pinto has given the premises a new lease of life. A unique combination of a 600 m² storage space with specially designed interior elements. You can admire the architecture from any angle, and experience the culinary highlights. In other words: gastronomy in a spectacular setting.
