Nice enough square with the usual cafes on most sides. Nice statue in the middle. Not quite sure what else to say to be honest.

Nothing to write home about. Just a place with restaurants to eat in. Definitely not a must-do in my books.

We usually make for this place when in Ghent, the Dulle Griet is worth a visit, if you can get in! It's best enjoyed when sunny and the tables and chairs are out, perfect for people watching.
