Beautiful setting great food but service wasn't that great shame we didn't want to order more things as everything took a loooong time

We ate here four times in three days! This is not because of a lack of imagination or adventure! We did eat in other restaurants but we kept coming back for either lunch or dinner! It was too good to stay away. Really bubbly atmosphere...More

A stunning brasserie with an amazing atmosphere that is only overshadowed by the food. I can't recommend it enough.

This is a must stop for food and beer in Gent. The building was a former forging warehouse. While large and vast, it still feels intimate. The staff is excellent and attentive without being bothersome. The selection of beers and the food was amazing. It...More

A very special place, in a original house (former 'warehouse') and the food is just great, with so many choices. All good and with quality, with many local tastes and specialities, and very friendly personnel.

Busy restaurant (could only get a table at 21:00 on a Monday in November!) in a beautifully restored warehouse. Good food and service. Excellent steak and seafood of the day. Recommend it.

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.
