Delicious food. Huge portions! We had the 2 local dishes, beef strong and fries, meat was tender, sauce was rich, juicy and flavoursome. And the waterzoo with chicken, highly recomend both. Lovely restaurant. Lovely service. Good wine.

Too many people, very slow kitchen. Beers coming very fast. The mussels, when they finally arrived were delicious. Happy with the experience of alfresco dinning in Ghent but will not come back
