The 5 best places for late night food in Ghent

1) De Robot

This is a relaxed cafe on a corner opposite the old Bijloke hospital. The blue formica tables, tiled floor and potted plants give it a retro look, while the collection of toy robots adds a quirky touch. Students and teachers come here from the art school across the road to eat plain food like hamburgers and lasagne while mellow 1950s music plays in the background. Open most nights until 1 am.
