    and not so crowded. You can walk along the Lys River or ride a boat along. The views of the beautiful houses is always a treat. There are restaurants, cafés and small shops. On one of the houses is a "Manneken Pis", right and left are 2 girls.

    Departing Graventseen Castle, I headed for the Zuivelbrugstraat bridge to do a walking circuit back to Korenmarket. This riverside stretch had some interesting shopfronts and was a nice detour.  more »

    It's ok, nothing special. Service was nothing special. Had the fries and bicky burger.

    We were recommended that the fries were good here and they were, but the service was poor and the interior is dirty and uninviting.

    Nothing exceptional but pretty good, not greasy fries. Welcome, the owner did move customers who occupied a table of 4 for leave us the place. Very few places (15 places) upstairs in the mezzanine but good ventilation because we're not out with the smell of frying. The advantage: it is open even the Easter WE.

Where to stay in Ghent

One of Belgium's main cities, Ghent offers a good variety of places to stay. Because of its proximity to the capital city of Brussels and the city of Bruges, Ghent has fewer options than one might expect for a city of its size. Locals recommend booking a room in advance. The city has options for travelers on any budget, from inexpensive hostels to pricier hotels, with most visitors choosing to stay within the historical center. Prices drop slightly as you move away from the Old Town.
