Enjoy a delicious drink and good food

We work, when possible, with organic and / or fair-trade products and quality meat. All preparations are made with daily fresh products. The ice cream is artisan prepared.

We take great care for guests with food intolerances (such as gluten, lactose, nuts, etc.), therefor the allergens are clearly indicated for each dish in our menu.

In an authentic setting in the center of Ghent

The gorgeous building in which the restaurant is located was owned by the d’Hooghe family and is called the ‘Directeurswoning’ (or ‘Director’s residence’). It was renovated completely in 2002 and 2003. The project was given the name ‘Multatuli-project’, given the historical connection to Multatuli himself. On August 19, 1867, Eduard Douwes Dekker gave a rather controversial lecture in this building, in the premises of the Van Crombrugghe Society. Two years later, the writer visited again to present his book ‘Max Havelaar’.


And this book brings us to the reason we chose the name ‘Multatuli’ for our restaurant: we use a lot of fair trade or max havelaarlabel. In addition, we try to use as much biological products and natural meat as possible. So ‘Multatuli’ seemed to be an obvious choice…

Enjoy with friends and family

We offer several packages for groups from 10 people. We provide a separate room for large groups.
