Café Theatre

Café Theatre

This is the place to be for a delicious overture or a tasty encore! And the interior of Café Théâtre deserves a round of applause as well.

In the evening, the bar staff will be happy to mix you a fantastic cocktail! It’s absolutely true: Café Théâtre is where you will officially find the Best Steak Tartare in Flanders and Brussels. Awarded first prize by the leading Belgian magazine Knack, this dish comes highly recommended. But you can also opt for one of the chef’s suggestions or three-course set menu, or you can eat à-la-carte. There is a varied selection of starters, main courses and desserts to choose from. At night the real magicians appear behind the bar. A juice with the right punch, a stiff shot from the bottle, and as if by magic a fabulous cocktail appears. The bar staff at Café Théâtre have won several prizes, so you know you’ve found the right mix! Café Théâtre is a great place for breakfast as well! The impressive coffee and breakfast menu at Café Théâtre is based on the local traditional Bloch Bakery: a household name in Ghent with a history going back 100 years. The family bakery with a name that is famous far beyond the city will spoil you with its unique pastry recipes from far and wide.

Chambre Séparée

Chambre Séparée

Chambre Séparée is the new concept by ‘Flemish Foodie’ Kobe Desramaults. The restaurant only seats 16 people. The guests sit surrounding the kitchen, which creates an intimate atmosphere in the setting of an old industrial building. What follows is a unique experience, translated into a menu of 20 dishes. However, the restaurant does not offer an à la carte dining experience. Instead, the chef compiles the menu on the basis of seasonal products and the inspiration of the moment. As a result, the food comes as a complete surprise. Planning a visit to Ghent and looking for an exclusive evening out? If so, be sure to keep an eye on the Chambre Séparée website and book a meal with Kobe no more than 2 months before your arrival!
