Few Ghentians know that the completely renovated upscale Pillows Grand Hotel Reylof in Hoogstraat 36 hosts more than one restaurant. Downstairs you can indulge yourself with a gastronomic experience in Restaurant LOF. But upstairs we find The Living Bistro & Bar situated in the original living quarters of the 18th century town house of Baron Olivier De Reylof.
The Living Bistro is located on the courtyard side of the 18th century mansion and offers a small but tasty menu with a modern version of classic French and Belgian bistro dishes. The Living is open both for lunch and dinner and in the other rooms well designed social spaces are created for coffee, cocktails or late night drinks. “The Bar is surrounded by three salons with different characters: the library for an inspiring meeting, a second space for a laid-back chat, or choose for an intimate meeting at the fireplace” we read on the web site of The Living.
We have visited The Living on multiple occasions and whilst we were mostly alone, the food was delicious and fresh. We’ve had mixed experiences in terms of service, but The Living has proven to be a good spot for casual meetings with both friends and business people.
Book your lunch or dinner here.
