We wandered into the Avalon after being turned away by 2 other local restaurants for not having a reservation on a Friday night. They graciously shifted 2 customers from a 4-top table so we could sit. We appreciated that effort and they told us up-front that it was a Friday night fixed-price menu. We typically don't eat fixed price and... More

On my sixteenth birthday, I wanted to go to a vegetarian restaurant. In Ghent, there aren’t many vegetarian food restaurants, so the choice was made quickly. Of course, the beautiful name, Avalon, sounded good to the ears. There is a sober and simple decor, a bit like in the Middle Ages. The menu is not very extensive, so I opted... More

Nice vegan restaurant, there's not many in Gent Belgium. Tofu steak was not very firm. The soup was good. We recommend for a big lunch. A little expensive.

It's lush Green outdoor sitting arrangements and a few scattered rustic items will make you feel that you're in Garden of Eden. And delicious food you will receive will only add to the experience. If you're in Ghent, make sure that you have atleast one meal at Avalon. And make sure you go with your loved ones.

My boyfriend and I visited here for lunch on a cold November lunch time and were blown away by the food. The seitan stew was exactly what we needed to warm us up. We also had a mix plate which was very good. There's an extensive drinks menu and the coffee is incredibly good too. The staff were friendly and... More

Delicious and interesting food, great service, lovely atmosphere. Great beer too! We had the mixed 'platter of the day' - really good selection of different dishes.

We visited here at lunchtime during our trip to Ghent. It was quite a nice day so we sat in the terrace at the back. Child friendly with a couple of highchairs. We went for the vegetarian platter with 7 different dishes on the one plate. Everything was delicious - really enjoyed it. Would definitely recommend.

A small quirky restaurant that has been serving Vegetarian food for 30ish years. We had a fantastic meal with lots of variety at a very reasonable price. They also serve some great beers to go with your meal.

Avalon serves healthy, tasty lunch meals. The menu is original, better than in most veggie restaurants. We had the meal if the day, which consisted of several vegetables, stew and a salad, and we had the lasagne, which was delicious. We only thought the prices were a bit high: €18 euros for the meal of the day and €17 for... More
