Beste klanten,
Ingevolge de maatregelen opgelegd door de Federale regering, is restaurant Souvenir gesloten van 14 maart tot 19 april 2020.
=> Alle bestaande reserveringen in die periode worden automatisch geannuleerd.
=> Indien u een kredietkaartgarantie heeft toegekend, wordt die ook vrij gegeven. Deze kredietkaartgarantie is geen betaling, dus u hoeft zich geen zorgen te maken. Er wordt geen geld afgeboekt.
=> Indien u een voorschot heeft betaald, komt dit op een wachtrekening voor een later
=> Cadeaubonnen die vervallen in de periode van de verplichte sluiting, worden 2 maanden verlengd.
=> De Sharing Lunch actie wordt verlengd tot eind april.
=> Onze geplande vakantie van 5 tot 15 april 2020 is geannuleerd. Bijgevolg zullen wij de volledige Paasvakantie openen indien dit wordt toegelaten.
=> Voor meer informatie, vragen wij u om voorlopig enkel contact op te nemen via mail. Zo kunnen wij alle vragen rustig en zonder fout afwerken. office@souvenir.gent
Wij hopen dat u uw reservering kunt verplaatsen naar een ander moment in de nabije toekomst.

Onze excuses voor eventuele ongemakken.
Hartelijke groeten,

Dear clients,

Souvenir restaurant is closed from March 14 to April 19, 2020.
=> All reservations in that period are automatically canceled.
=> If you have put down a credit card guarantee, it will be released. This credit card guarantee is not a payment. No money is being taken from your card.
=> If you have paid an advance, this will be put on a waiting account for a future booking.
=> Gift vouchers that expire in the mandatory closing period are extended for 2 months.
=> For more information, we ask you to contact us by email for the time being. This way we can handle all questions quietly and without error.

We hope you can postpone your reservation to another time in the near future.
Our apologies for any inconvenience.

Kind regards,
Vilhjalmur & Joke
