In the marvelous setting of a centuries-old town house on the Leie River, this traditional restaurant is a dazzling visual spectacle that's matched by the culinary one. The wide-ranging menu features hearty portions of fish and meat dishes. Flemish specialties include paling in 't groen (eel with green sauce), chicken waterzooï (chicken stew), carbonnade flamande (beef stew), and asparagus à la flamande. Try to get a window seat, which affords a spectacular view of the towers of Ghent.
