It’s difficult to understand why Avalon don’t want to make use of their nice premises (which would suit an evening meal), and talented chef(s) to open more hours. As it is, unless during the festival, they only open at lunchtimes, and even then only on 5 days. The service and atmosphere were great. We had a pleasant but unremarkable onion soup (slighly thin), but then an exceptionally good dagschotel (which translates as dish of the day but in Flanders and the Nethelands is really a combination of small amounts of many different items put together by the chef to work as a whole. Avalon’s was really unusual, perfectly cooked and well presented, and made us very glad that we had finally managed to find oursleves in the centre of Ghent at lunchtime. Would definitely go back.
