The scent of grilling on charcoal, the taste of passion and craftsmanship: it creates a full experience from the moment you walk in. With Upper, Ghent has a grill house like no other: casual and straight-up, with a keen eye for detail.
The kitchen, led by Gilles Bogaert, is crude and impulsive. Superior quality and pure flavors are at the core of the concept.
Highly recommended for no-nonsense food lovers.
Upper is located on the first floor of a character building, which used to house a taxi garage.
The interior is eclectically warm with industrial influences. Musketon, a local street artist, has drawn dozens of stories on the walls, adding an extra dimension to the ambience. They’re contrary, slightly provocative and at the same time beautiful to look at.
In short: Ghent through and through.
Upper is located in the Zuidstationstraat, within a stone’s throw of both the famous red light district and the trendy Vlaanderenstraat. Capitole Theatre is just around the corner.
Right outside our front door, at a mere 20 meters, is the largest car park of Ghent, Parking-Zuid, at Woodrow Wilson square. The 1898 Post Hotel is located at walking distance, right in the heart of the city.
