Don't forget to make your reservation on time as extremely popular.
Nice stylush atmosphere, perfect for an intimate dinner or a business lunch. If you are looking to impress and enjoy excellent cooking then this is the place to be.

Kelderman

Reviewed By steven w - Bordeaux, France

The dinner was arranged to recognize the successful completion a project and I had not previously heard of this restaurant. Turned out it was an excellent choice. Formal and yet still relaxed the atmosphere worked well. None of the group even looked at the menu as we all went with the 'special menu of the day'....5 courses of mostly seafood served with imagination, some amazing flavours and yet avoiding the common mistake of overcomplicating dishes. The wines were also chosen by the restaurant and each one worked perfectly. A truly great evening.

't Sleutelgat

Reviewed By Matt F - Denderwindeke, Belgium

Have been several times... Never a disappointment. Took my parents there for my mother's birthday in May and (as usual) the selection was astonishing. None of this "Excellent... For the price"... This really does rate as one of the best meals I've had. The selection is small but it's all fresh and seasonal... The set menus are fab and there's always flexibility (I'm allergic to seafood so there has to be...).
It's family run, the atmosphere is great; relaxed and sumptuous... If you want to spoil someone, this us the place!

't Korennaer

Amazing fine food in a wonderful environment, with nice Terrace. Quality for us, is the most important thing. More than 250 wines on the wine list.

Meal, experience, staff, ... all very good. The restaurant looks very nice too. Food is delicious. The chef himself also comes to great the guests & is open for a chat - which always is nice & makes you feel important. Staff very friendly, young but efficient & nice.

Hof van Cleve

Reviewed By Gilbert V

Traditionally I visit this restaurant for lunch on the Dutch Koningsdag. It is the living proof that location is not important when the service and quality offered is outstanding. A small farmhouse in the middle of the fields, nothing fancy, simple mostly white interior. Nothing takes the attention away from what comes on the plate and that remains outstanding. The "large" menu is not cheap (325) but is just great. Beautifully presented, mostly seafood with Anjou pigeon as the meat course. What is striking is that over time the cooking by Goosens has become much simpler with even better ingredients that sing without having to add complexity. This is a major accomplishment. Service impeccable. Outstanding winelist fairly priced. Still lunch for 3 without exaggerating on the wine 1,600 euro. Not for everyday. Until next year .

Karel De Stoute

Nice young couple recently took it over and made a great little restaurant!

Reviewed By belgianvisit0r - Ghent, Belgium

We had, as expected, again a very good meal. The new location is even better, the food is still delicious and service seems less nervous / more mature, and the location itself is very nice with a rather private terras.
The way of working is still the same- very limited choice, but everything you get is excellent.

Da Vinci

Superb dining. Absolutely worth mentioning!!!

Reviewed By meskean - Brussels, Belgium

We celebrated a family event here, and had a fixed meal option, which was adapted to the dietary needs of two of the participants.
The restaurant is run by a couple, and we were geven an excellent service. Beautifully presented dishes, excellent food.
Modern interior, lovely garden for the Summer. The only minus is the location away from the city centre.

De Pastorie

Reviewed By ludovicus D - Duffel

The food was good to great (with exception of the dessert), the price was much to expensive (veryvery high for one star). For the first course, on the other hand, the meat was announced as the basis element, but it was only the background of the picture, not the most interesting moment of the food. Also, the wine accompagnement was not enough (for the price); the Grüner Veltliner to sweet; the red mediocre.

Soup'R

Reviewed By JSN16 - Barcelona, Spain

We ate here while visiting Ghent. We had never seen a soup "fast food" restaurant before but our experience was very good. Excellent prices, tasty and healthy food and friendly staff. The place is small so you may have to wait to eat, but I think it's really worth it. Perfect for december cold. You get bread and butter and a few extras and sauces for free with the soup. I recommend the Thai one!
