I visited the restaurant with some business friends who not only enjoyed the fantastic architecture of the Pakhuis but also the great food. Worthwhile going for a great foody event !

The depot-turned-restaurant has a great vibe in it. Two levels, high ceilings. Food was tasty, though the menu and wine list were limited. Service was slow, but did not spoil the experience. Nice option for a light meal.

Staff, service, dishes and wine.. everything was fine in here. We had 'shrimps croquettes' as an aperitif, that's a speciality of Ghent and totally recommendable to taste in Pakhuis. I would love to go there again.

Been here several times, mostly with bunch of friends. Pakhuis serves great food for reasonable prices. Great services.

Meal was good, and value for money. I think we were lucky with our table on groundfloor because it seems like upstairs can be quite noisy and warm. Service was good - heavy on the meat.

Me and my boyfriend had a wonderful stay in this gorgeous hotel. Perfectly located on walking distance of all sights. Clean and comfortable room, loved the pillows!! Unfortunately the breakfast was very expensive so we decided to have breakfast in town. Overall a great weekend!!

Try the oysters because they are delicious and the very special Poulet de Bresse (check ferme-le-devant) and their own beer. You won't find better. There is alas a but. The restaurant is beautiful, trendy, cosy and personnel very friendly but acoustics are lousy. If you...More

My husband loved his starter and main dish, so he would have put a 5 stars. For my part, I would have put only a 3 stars for different reasons: - when you go for an expensive restaurant, you expect more than 3 (yes, 3)...More
