High honors go to this exquisite restaurant on a quaint street near the Castle of the Counts. Its interior is a garden delight of greenery, white napery, and light woods. Proprietors Louis and Pat Hellebaut see to it that dishes issued from their kitchen are as light as the setting, with delicate sauces and seasonings enhancing fresh ingredients. Seafood and regional specialties like the traditional Ghent souplike fish stew waterzooï are all superb. In summertime you can dine outdoors on a terrace beside the confluence of the Leie River and the Lieve canal, and next to a pretty little garden called Appelbrug Parkje.
