Finding a place to eat on a Sunday evening in Gent without having it booked in advance can be a very difficult task (Belgians are usually ahead planners). So not long ago, on a Sunday I was having a beer with my husband at Brouwbar that is also located in the heart of Gent at Oudburg street we decided to give Prince a try since it was just meters away from where we were sitting and had tables available.
Prince has a very spacious, ludic interior decorated with blossom trees and wooden furniture but when we visited, it was a sunny evening, so we opted to sit outside on the tables they have lying on the sidewalk.
We sat down already being aware of the their Food Sharing concept and immediately decided to go for the full experience and ordered the menu called “Journey around the world” . This menu that consists of 6 very big dishes, that they have adjusted size portions due to the late complaints, and we were definitely more than satisfied at the end.
The dishes from the menu tasted fresh, with accentuated flavours, but at the same time showed simple preparation and plating. Service was attentive and food was being served fast in the beginning but it slowed down as soon as the restaurant got busier; which was not necessarily a con since we were getting through the meal too fast.
Unfortunately for a dessert lover like me, the menu “Journey around the world” didn’t include any. Their drinking options are not on the wide range side but you can definitely choose a decent bottle of wine for a fair price. As a plus they also have available a Vegetarian menu version, and a few tapas to choose from for the not so hungry ones.
Overall Prince was a pleasant experience and I would say it is a must visit restaurant here in Gent due to it’s unusual and interesting concept. If you have good company, time to spend “food sharing” and also enjoy trying different cuisines and flavours for a moderate price, give it a go!
