This place should carry the passion and kindness that the majority of Belgians do... HOWEVER, the waitresses were very unpleasant. They put the bill down on the table and picked up the money without even giving us eye contact. We waited 15 minutes before the staff even gave us a drinks menu despite them asking if we were drinking or eating on arrival. This is not the type of service you expect when paying the price you do for their beer menu. Its a shame i cant give it a 0. NOT WORTH IT. GO TO ANOTHER BAR.

Went to Faits Divers on a day trip to Ghent to after our tour guide recommended we tried a dish called vol-an-vents (she claimed it was a traditional Belgian dish) so in our search we stumbled upon Faits Divers, the restaurant itself with both indoor and outdoor seating available, service was slower than in other restaurants we had visited but by no means slow at all (comparing it to the service you get in English restaurants), staff were very friendly, food was excellent- the chicken/mushroom filling was rich and creamy and came with a good portion of chips and mayo (very Belgian!), warm atmosphere and good food you can't go wrong!

The midday lunch food quality is low and liitle and NO reference for the famous good Belgium fries, the fries at this place are lousy! Table service sucks! We wait about 50 minutes to get our main dish! Take your time for a luch break, 2 hours at least.

I have known the Faits Divers for some years and noticed a decline in food quantity and service.
Being a 'local' I thought it had become a more touristic place.
The food is very tasty and good but not enough. The prices have gone up and the quantity has gone down.
We went for the salades Geitenkaas en Monkey and then afterwards, still room for pannekoeken !
Including the apéro Sherry and Copperhead, the total amount we paid was EUR 48.20...... too pricy!!!!

Touristique place to have lunch (too expensive for this kind of food) but at the end we were satisfied. I had the tunafish, grilled an still a bit raw on the inside which I liked..Waiters are not very well trained when asking specific questions about the menu.. This can be 'fait divers'
