    Pappardelle: Italian style for low budgets

    by mistress_moogle Written Aug 3, 2005

    A cheap bite to take away during your walk through Gent. Small or big boxes of fresh pasta and fresh sauce. Difficult to chose between all the different sauces! But believe me: every each one of them is delicious!

    Favorite Dish: Salmon ravioli with Shrimp sauce

    La Cena: Re-discover Mediteranean food

    by mistress_moogle Written Aug 3, 2005

    The cook knows how to be creative in his kitchen. He takes all possible Mediteranean ingredients and invents new dishes. Sometimes you are really surprised by the menu (vegetables as desert??) but in the end you are happy with what you chose. Not too expensive and very very good!

    Favorite Dish: Honey-icecream with pineseeds

    Le Sud: classy interior and good food!

    by Mahieu Written Jul 22, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In this restaurant, there's something for everyone. A lot of Belgian dishes, but also some Italian pasta, eastern dishes and even some vegetarian ones.
    The interior is classy and cosy and the service is friendly.

    Favorite Dish: Definitely try the shrimp croquettes as a starter: they serve them with lemon and fried persil: yum!

    Gök: Delicious Turkish food

    by Mahieu Written Jul 22, 2005

    The area around the "Sleepstraat", is the Turkish area of Ghent. The whole street is packed with Turkish restaurants, so you'll have a lot of choice. I choose Gök: cheap, good service, big portions and delicious!

    Favorite Dish: I had köfte, served with Turkish bread and vegetables.

    De Gouden Klok : Classic French/Italian restaurant

    by Innovator Updated Jun 11, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Stylish, more expensive restaurant in a nice old restorated house with Italian Cook with experiences from La Tour d'Argent in Paris.

    This restaurant has a 50's atmosphere, the food and wines are excellent quality, the garden looks very nice for in summer.

    An Italian family let themselves go in their kitchen and restaurant, nice combination of classic French Cuisine and best Italian iwnes. The atmosphere and service are optimal, best classic restaurant in Ghent,but expensive...

    Lekker GEC: Delicious organic/veggie food

    by lukky Written May 24, 2005

    Lekker GEC is a part of the Ghent ecology center, and serves organic, vegan (some vegetarian) dishes, including a daily set lunch, sandwiches and snacks. Really tasty food. You can eat in or take away.

    The restaurant is run by volunteers, both Belgian and foreign ones. They are usually very nice and will be happy to tell you more about the restaurant and the ecology center. You might even be able to help out in the restaurant in return for a free meal!

    Lekker GEC is closed on Mondays but is open 12noon to 9 PM all other days.

    De Grill: Great waterzooi and scrumptious steak

    by londonbabe Written Jan 9, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you're wandering around the centre of Ghent, you're bound to see this place. A huge building on the Korenlei, by the main bridge between the two churches. And the smell of grilling steak comes wafting to meet you as you walk by. (If you're a veggie sorry you're out of luck here.)
    I had the waterzooi, a traditional stew from Ghent with chicken, veggies and little potatoes. Doesn't sound much but the chicken was wonderfully moist and flavourful, and I also had some frites from the bowl that arrived with Steve's grilled prawns! Starters are about 7-11 euro each (seafood ones are expensive), mains 12-16 - pretty good for excellent food on a prime tourist site.
    Oh - and the 'Dame Blanche' dessert is icecream with warm chocolate sauce and Very Good Indeed!
    There's a good wine list with a selection from around the world. A reasonable bottle wil be around 16-20 euro.
    Try and get a table by the window - then you get a wonderful view across the canal and Grasslei to St Bavos.

    Belgian fries

    by urbangorilla Written Dec 17, 2004

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you're in Belgium you should try the fries considering this is the country of their origin. Occassionally you'll see small stands selling them with an assortment of other deep fried goods such as deep fried cheese. With your fries you can get one, more or a combination of sauces. Mayonaise is the staple, though stoverij and speciaal are good too.

    Various Turkish establishments: Big, tasty, and cheap

    by urbangorilla Written Dec 14, 2004

    Big, no frills, feeds at prices rarely seen in Western Europe? There are a few Turkish restaurants in Gent which offer pretty decent meals for around the 4-10 euro mark. On the weekends they can be pretty packed, though the customer turnover is high (meals are served fast, bills come faster).

    Favorite Dish: Best choice is to go for one of the pizza dishes, they are huge! Vegetarian was my staple, washed down with a cheap beer.

    Last Sunday we went to Heilig Huizeke restaurant in Drongen 9031. My husband in a wheelchair because of his terminal and I where not allowed to sit on the terrace nor inside where there was still plenty places free. We were customers there in the past but will never be in the future as apparently invalid people are a blame to their reputation..
