The restaurant is located in an alley within the touristic "core" of the city. It is small, not fancy but honest and reasonably welcoming. The best quality/price balance is the regional menu at 28.50 euros (starter, main course and dessert), but moules are good (and big!) too.

It's such a nice place to eat. I very much recommend it. Very friendly staff, very delicious food with a very good price for the city center of Gent. The staff were so amazing that they gave a bottle of nice wine to my friend since it was her birthday :) They served our food piece by piece, keeping the... More

We visited on a Saturday evening in August 2015 and were pretty early diners; the restaurant soon became busy. I had rabbit with prunes and my wife had filet mignon. Both came with a huge pile of chips and side salads. I was also provided with another large piece of rabbit. Chocolate mousses for desert were good and the house... More

We wanted to have both Mussels for the lady and Stewwed Eels for me. Here we were not disappointed they were delicious and as always in Belgim plenty of them. Both with the famous Frites. The White wine carafe was most acceptable. Cost all in with tip -80euros. Where can you get stewed Eels in the UK! It is also... More

Had a great meal. The restaurant was spotlessly clean with gleaming white tabelcothes and a nice friendly greeting from proffesional waiting staff. I ordered mussels that came plump and super fresh in a yummy wine sauce. If you're visiting Belgium the menu will impress you with classic flemmish dishes. We paid around 37 euros per person including drinks and coffees.... More

We chose this restaurant because it has very good reviews and specially about their mussels... So we were set for some disappointments. The mussels were ok, but surely not close to the best I have eaten. In general, I would say that the price-quality ratio of the restaurant is not great. In addition, the hostess was rather chauvinistic , advising... More

We had an evening meal here whilst staying in a local hotel. The choice of traditional Flemish dishes was good and the quality and presentation was excellent, they Flemish stew is well worth trying having the most amazing sauce. The service was excellent from a very attentive waiter whose English was very good and it was a most welcoming restaurant... More

Had a lovely meal here right in the heart of Ghent. The restaurant served all the traditional Flemish dishes, carbonade of beef, rabbit, eel etc. All done really well. Restaurant slightly dated in decor but it didn't detract from the food and the service was very good.
