North Sea catch of the day was my choice for dinner. I choose the Price fix menu, with starter, main and dessert. Very boisterous crowd inside. Quiet outside. Food was very good, staff excellent!

T Pakhuis is a very nice building (old warehouse) where you can eat the typical brasserie cuisine. The building itself is really worth seeing. The dishes they serve are always of a very good quality (with a lot of choice between meat, fisch and the...More

We loved this restaurant. Served by Axel who was an incredibly attentive waiter. The oysters are extraordinary, so many varieties and we had lobster, absolutely delicious. This restaurant is worth going to if you are in Ghent. Always busy apparently so book.

Reservations highly recommended in this hip, great location. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable with good recommendations. The warm goat cheese platter was a delicious starter. Portions were nice, not too much, not too little. We each had a steak and was done to perfection (bleu).

The better mid-class restaurant. Reservation is necessary & ask for a table upstairs (less noise). Aim for a budget of € 35 à € 50 p.p. Price is in proportion to the quality.

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.
