Vegetarians have various choices to pick from the numerous burger options, including the Feta pesto and the Toful caprese. Beef-eaters too are not left out in their own choices too. They have eleven selectable choices, including the popular sticky fingers burger with potato chips inside. Paul’s combines the comfortable and serene atmosphere of a restaurant with the charm and attractive views of a roadside venue for a memorable and dining experience.
Situated in a historic building, this trendy restaurant features modern and experimental interior decor. De Rave is the quintessential Ghentian fine-doing experience. With the unrealistic sleek white staircases on its walls and plates made of blown glass, the decor will leave you as mesmerized as the food.
Publiek is a new restaurant alongside others that are giving Ghent a foodie adventure outlook. The restaurant is owned by a Flemish foodie Olly Ceulenaere who conceptualized publiek as a traditional Flemish dish. This vision was turned into a reality with the help of his girlfriend. With the blend of Flemish tradition, It’s no wonder people make reservations that run months in advance. A unique sampling of Olly’s innovative style includes fish with orange buttermilk and pigeon with beetroot and grape leaves.
The House of Elliott
Situated along leic River, the restaurant has such a wonderful aquatic view. The House of Elliott has its own uniqueness that you can’t find a place quite like The House of Elliott, it has an electric-themed design with an exotic menu.
In locating the Bar Haliano Restaurant, you could ask the locals for ‘Off the beaten track’ which is the phrase you’ll often hear about Bar Haliano. Bar Helaino has been serving mainly Italian food for years now. Their cuisine has such a great taste coupled with a considerable price tag. Little wonder they experience a massive influx of customers each day. Handmade with milk from the local creamery, the ice cream selection was at least ten tantalizing flavors at a time. But what most visitors don’t notice is the takeaway counter in the back where Italian favourites, like cheese Lasagna, are sold by the slice.
