We were recommended this restaurant by a waitress working at the Ghent Marriott Hotel. It was packed but we eventually got a table and the food coming out looked good. With a drink, we waited patiently for our order (half an hour by now) but then things changed. The hard working female chef and her assistant just walked out of... More

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.

We ate here last week. Our first time in Belgium. We had a couple beers next door & then got in here in time for a late lunch. Most of us tried the waterzooi. Awesome! Really tasted like a home cooked stew. My friend had the chicken stew with some puffed bread or something with it. She said that was... More

I was really satisfied with this place. The beer came so fast I was really impressed. Concerning the deco it is very warm and perfect with a view on the canal. It took some time to receive our plates but totally worth it , it really feels like it was prepared just for us. Their local soup was amazing ,... More

It had been a long drive from Cambridge and all I wanted was a decent Flemish Stew and a calming beer to help me recover and set me up for an afternoon of sightseeing. We came across this place by accident. The beer 'menu' was as long as the food menu, so it suited us perfectly. Thank goodness we didn't... More

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

Huge cauldron of the local delicacy - filled with what seemed like half a chicken - hot steaming and lots of it. The chicken vol au vent also superb - both dishes served with either frites or croquettes and some well dressed side salad and bread. Couldn't fault it - ate outside and it got a little chilly in mid... More

No I didn't expected it. In the middle of all Tourist restaurants we found Chez Leontine. Saturday night, crowds of people. They opened up the first Floor. Well done, thanks!! Outstanding service, great food and a never ending list of beers. Welcome to Belgium, welcome to Gent.

Ate here with a group recently. Its ordinary enough really. Rabbit and mussels were very good but steaks very bland. Frites were excellent tough. Wonderful de Koninck beer on tap. Overall it's fine but nothing to get too excited about. Bar downstairs is super though!

We went there by mistake (misled by the reviews on the beer pub close-by). Positively surprised by the beer "book" (kind of endless, pages and pages). Unfortunately, food is limited to a handful of traditional Flemish dishes (even if good, I would go again only for beer). Extremely limited oprions for vegetarians.
