We had a lovely lunch in the garden, with exquisite food, warm service, enchanting music and glorious weather... A memorable birthday lunch. Couldn't be better. Highly recommended.

We all enjoyed the three course taster meal and little hors douvre at the start of the meal were both interesting and tasty. The roast duck was perfect and overall the meal was very good. Waiter staff were attentive and friendly.

Although one recommended "LOF" as a place to go, we were very surprised by the fine food and splendid dishes they served. Some looked like artworks. Where the eyes surprised, our sense of taste even more. Well balanced tastes and ingredients, perfect food quality. Till next time in Ghent!

Lof is really a perfect combination of fine kitchen. All ingredients are very fresh, home made and original combination. For me it could easily compete with Michelin star restaurants. The setting is in an ancient majestic building, in the interior they respected the old elements and added great contemporary elements. Highly recommend!

Went with a group of 5, restaurant was mostly empty. While the food was indeed good, and the meat nicely prepared and cooked, the service was very slow, formal and debilitating at moments. Three different wines were presented before they brought the bottle we ordered. 20 minute wait for 5 coffees? At 100 EUR per person, you can find better... More

Wasn't expecting too much for a hotel restaurant but food turned out to be quite good. Opting for the a la carte menu, we were treated to a number of refined dishes. Flavours meshed well. On top of that, we were given complementary nibbles and starters that rounded off tbe experience. Recommended.

Booked for Christmas Eve set dinner (24 Dec) and was not disappointed. Welcoming and courteous arrival then serenaded by jazz pianist for an hour while we enjoyed two complimentary amuse-bouches before our 4-course set menu. Delicious fish starter, duck main course, frozen yoghurt dessert, washed down with delicious sparkling and still wines. Great value at €75pp, substantial and filling portions... More

Restaurant Lof will pleasantly surprise you! As soon as you step into the restaurant and taste the modern cuisine with classical hints, you will know what we mean. The colourful, elegant designs of the restaurant by Christian Lacroix and Designers Guild, in combination with the sublime dishes prepared by Chef Joris Korsten and his team, have awarded the restaurant an enviable reputation.
