The scent of grilling on charcoal, the taste of passion and craftsmanship create a total experience from the moment you walk in. With Upper, Ghent has a grill house like no other: casual and brutal, with a keen eye for detail. The kitchen, led by Gilles Bogaert, is rough and impulsive.
Top quality and pure flavors are the strength of the concept. Highly recommended for no-nonsense food lovers.
Restaurant Upper is located on the first floor of a characteristic building in the Zuidstationstraat, a former taxi-garage.
The interior is eclectically warm with industrial influences.
Musketon, a Ghent street artist, has drawn dozens of stories on the walls, giving the whole an extra dimension. A bit contrary, slightly provocative and at the same time beautiful to look at. In short: from top to bottom Ghentish.
Upper is located in the Zuidstationstraat, nearly on the corner of the "rough" neighborhood and at the same time within a stone's throw of the trendy Vlaanderenstraat and even shorter near the Capitole.
At 20 meters from the front door is the largest car park of Ghent, Parking-Zuid at the Woodrow Wilson square. The 1898 Post Hotel is also located in the nearby streets.
Zuidstationstraat 35, 9000 Ghent, Belgium
