Absolutely superb ribs! And all you can eat, as well. My wife and I loved it so much, we went there every evening while in Ghent. Make sure to have the salt/spicy ribs - they were to die for! The service was good too; pretty good humoured and friendly waiters. Not exactly cheap, but totally worth it.

Not only was I flabbergasted by... More

The place is nice, the staff is very friendly, you have 4 different flavors of BBQ ribs and the steak is very well cooked - they come with salad and bread - you still miss some fries or potatoes.

A most enjoyable meal after a long drive from southern Normandy and a walk of the city. The Entrecôte was outstanding and the Ribs just came coming!! Pleasantly served in an atmosphere of contentment. Just what we wanted and so centrally located.

The ribs of The Chef are exquisitely good, salty but juicy enough to enjoy at maximum flavour, wauw... Prices are really nice too. You can eat as much ribs as you want, for 17 euro's something like that. Nice and friendly staff, cool place, delicious ribs... 9,5/10

This is the perfect place if you are with a lot of people and want to enjoy a nice evening out. The food is not amazing, but still it is good. I have only been here once quite a while ago. The place still can make some improvements but overall I was happy with the friendly staff and the food.... More

This is a place specialized in ribs but I had a sallad instead and it was really good. Staff was very friendly and I had a good feeling. No white linen since you eat ribs with your hands. Uncomplicated but ok. Relaxed atmosphere
