This is a tiny place - maybe 20 seats. All they serve is fondue (beef, cheese, fish). My colleague and I had the beef; 300g per person is more than enough. It came with six sauces, which ranged from good to excellent, and was accompanied by an excellent salad and frites. The proprietor waited on us personally, and recommended an... More

We enjoyed a very tasty fondue at 't Gents Fonduehuisje. The restaurant backs onto the canal, so there is the option of the canal view while you eat. The room has an older, rustic feel, which I think suits a fondue dinner. We ordered the Beef Fondue, which was served with salad, frites and 6 sauces. Everything was very good... More

Generous portion of salad and six different sauces. 500 gr of beef more than enough for two. Hostess was very friendly and the food was worthy of a return trip.

I don't mind taking a risk on places to eat if they have low price menu options, so the average 27€ per person for this fondue restaurant made me dither. Until I looked through the window and saw what you get for your money. I was impressed with the ingredients. Normally not keen on eating much meat, we shared the... More

I'm to be honest, this is the worst hotel I've ever stayed in. The stench of smoke is sickening, despite signs. My room was horrendously dirty and beaten up (see pictures). There were no electrical plugs readily available, there was unrepaired damage to the room, and the bed was the least comfortable I've ever had the pleasure of enjoying. Avoid... More

As our usual Fondue place was closed, we hoped that this would be a decent alternative. No luck. :( If we had only read the reviews on Tripadvisor first: we could have avoided the disappointment. We took the so-called "fresh" fish fondue but our fish was still frozen when it arrived on the table. It took ages to cook our... More

This was one of the worst restaurant experiences I have ever had. And I had a lot of bad experiences. I'll just keep it short: - The minions: rude and had to wait 20 minutes before they came to take our order while the restaurant was not even running at 50%. - The table: it was against the coat rack....

With the mixed reviews, we nearly didn't go but we are so pleased we did. We chose the beef option and drank a couple of beers. The meat was tender and the 6 sauces were lovely, including a very spicy one and the banana curry!There was more than enough salad, fries and meat for the 2 of us.Too full for... More
