As my title says, great range of beers, good food, good views of sitting outside, great service and a good place to rest after a walk around the centre. Impressed as it was highly recommended.

Nice old pub close to the Belfort and Stadshal. Good selection of beer (as you would expect), friendly service - what more would you want? We made it our local for our 3 night stay.

In the centre of Ghent this is a lovely, relaxed small pub to enjoy the plethora of local Belgium beers. The walls are filled with beautiful black & white photos of local scenes. Basic food menu (looks like via microwave) of soups & spaghetti available. Pub wall has qwerky number board where regulars leave notes or coins as savings.

Popped in here to get out of the rain and realised that it was populated by lots of locals sitting around the bar. We ordered a chouffe beer which was delicious . We got talking to the bar man and a off duty chef from another venue and they were really helpful telling us where to go etc.

Family of 4 - 2 adults and 2 kids (age 15 and 13), on arrival in Ghent in evening, went looking for somewhere simple to eat after dining from North of London, and wandered into this pub. The clientele appeared local and gave us friendly nods and smile. Staff very friendly, and served us huge bowls of pasta Bolognese and... More

I like old things and this is the oldest cafe in Gent so I had to check it out. It's very unpretentious and they have a fantastic beer selection. The smoking hot bartender was very knowledgeable and recommended fantastic beers (try the Gruut Bruin - so good!). It's a local joint but both times we went there were a few... More

Great atmosphere and beers. I visit Gent one a year and I always make sure I stop by this pub. The service can be a bit slow though...

A traditional pub of Ghent, with many local customers, Den Turk is a must visit place if you like to see how the residences of the city react in a bar. you will find a big variety of beers there, the prices are normal and you will spend some nice time listening people tell stories about Gent and their lives....!

We liked this place so much that we went three times. (Not in the same day, you understand!) It's a typical brown café - one of the oldest in Ghent, right opposite the Stadthuis. In the evening, there are candles lit, adding to the cosy atmosphere, and there is an excellent range of beers. They sometimes have jazz music and... More
