After a nice walk in the historical centre of Ghent, we wanted to have a drink and ended up at the Cafe De Paris. The waiter was very friendly and because we were with a baby and it was cold outside, we could sit inside. We just wanted something to drink and that was not a problem. We also ordered... More

Well, it's just a place to get some normal food. Location is good yes. Food, not bad not great. Don't come here if you're searching for food experience. Only of you're tired and need a rest. Although the location is good, close to everything, be ready for the crowd... weekends are just to much ppl.

I don't have to tell you what I don't know. We had one of our many walks in Ghent and had tired leggs, the sun in May was weakened by a persitently cold Northerly wind, and here, we could rest.

we had the menu of 35 EUR...but for almost everything you have to pay a supplement. ... in the shrimp croquettes (with supplement) we hardly found 1 shrimp...The filet pur (with supplement) was horrible ... Maybe nice for a drink but don't eat there !!

This is a great bar/restaurant with a strong Flemish menu. Lots of well cooked food to choose from a a patient lady who will take the time to explain. A little gem in the centre of Ghent.

We turned up here very late at night and it was clear they were getting ready to close but despite this the lady serving us couldn't have been more helpful, she kept the place open late for us and talked us trough every word of the menu. She helped us choose a great local stew that tasted fantastic.

It is located right in the centre of the city, so everything is just a few minutes away. The terrace was warm, despite the cold outside. The Ghent Strop beer tasted very good and was served well.

We had lunch here and found the food very good. The service was good and the meal size large. Not the greatest moules i've ever had but we really enjoyed our meal...would pop in again for lunch when we go back to Ghent.
