The origins go back to Thursday, 10 October 1991, the day that the founders chose to inaugurate Brasserie Pakhuis and gave a new lease of life to a beautiful building in the center of Ghent.
Pakhuis has such a unique layout of the terrace. You will enjoy the atmosphere of the restaurant first before the delicious meal arrives at you.
Pakhuis is replaced by a transparent open kitchen with fresh seafood, meat, and vegetables. Renovation works have done in the kitchen and the terrace in 2016.
There is also a bar just on the left when you enter the door. If you wish to drink, come, and sit at the bar counter and enjoy your relaxing time.
The food from Pakhuis is the passion and the pride of farmers, producers, craftsmen, and all the professionals. All the great dishes come from their quality guarantee, working with good suppliers and with local, organic, and fresh products, all of that makes the difference in taste.
For your starters, we recommend this 'Home-Made Shrimp Croquettes with Lemon and deep-fried Parsley'. Once you try this, you will never forget its crunchiness on the outside and creaminess on the inside that melts immediately in your mouth.
At Pakhuis, you cannot miss oysters which are farmed by French and Dutch producers and fostered in Ireland, makes such a rich taste that is worth to be called the milk of the sea. It goes truly well with champagne.
We ordered beef tartare, with organic salad and Belgian fried potatoes. 'Smakelijk'! (Enjoy your meal)
For those people who keen on great dishes and dining, Pakhuis is the restaurant that you cannot miss to visit in Belgium!
