Enjoy traditional fare at Du Progres
Looking to sample a bona fide Flemish meal in Ghent? Du Progres has you covered with its offering of beloved classics that hold a special place in the hearts of many residents. Within in a lofty space decked out in subdued black-and-gold accents, this long-standing family-run brasserie has been cooking up traditional dishes such as Belgian steaks, stoverij (beef stew), gentse waterzooi (Ghent stew) and pork cheek stew with Westmalle beer and Tierenteyn mustard for over three generations. The food here is so reliably good that it’s known among Ghent residents as een vaste waarde (trusty go-to). Take note, however, that despite its uninterrupted opening hours, Du Progres’s long-enduring popularity and prime location smack bang in the middle of Korenmarkt means that reservations are a must.
