Jan Van den Bon

Jan Van den Bon has been the go-to place for foodies since 1986. They've been a trendsetter in Ghent, really. For more than 25 years they were the only Michelin star restaurant in the city, bringing you a gastronomic cuisine of the highest level!

With the re-opening of the restaurants after a long mandatory Covid break, Jan Van den Bon is ready to inspire and please the gourmands amongst us once again! Major Tom has been put in charge of the new website, to get you in the mood ;-).


Astronaut Yann:
"I was 18 when I met Chef Van den Bon for the first time. We shook hands, then he sent 478 pots and pans my way. It beat me how someone could use this many casseroles to prepare dinner... But I was a proud dishwasher in Ghent's best restaurant! I told myself: if you make it through your student years scrubbing on this endless supply of saucepans, you'll be sitting in the other part of the restaurant one day. Eventually, I did, and I've enjoyed several delicious meals in this classic French eatery that still owns a top 5 spot on the list of best restaurants in the city of Ghent."
