Nic e food, not cheap

We had diner with four (2 couples). It was my first time, and was pleasantly surprised with the menu and the excellent choice. Staff was very friendly and service was impeccable. What we had was very good, although it is a bit expensive. Drinks are quite expensive - 7 EURO for a glass of (good... read more

We have been here a couple of times and it was always very good and worth the money. However the last time the food was poor, far too expensive for what we got.

This restaurant has same nice food but I think it's to expensive for what it is. It has a nice design and it has a nice interior. The waiters are friendly. Like you can read in the other reviews, the price - quality is not what it should be. The location is very accessible and there is a lot of... More

Nice interior-design, good service, everything is well-presented, but the food isn't overwhelming. There is a lack of taste that holds no risk so it's a bit boring. Price-quality isn't really in balance, little to expensive for what you recieve...

We found this place by chance and stopped for lunch. Friendly service, bit slow. Good salads, nice taste, we liked the Thai salade. Bit dark inside. Expensive.

This was a return visit and my memory didn't fail me - Passade's just as good. Our family meal (with two young kids) was exquisitely cooked, beautifully presented and attentively served by the freindly yet professional waiter. They say you should never go back, and perhaps some of the "first time magic" was gone, but I thoroughly recommend Passade whether... More

This venue, just off the to the Antwerp-Brussels highway E19, has a big parking lot. Though quite big, the restaurant is nicely furnished and gives the impression of being quite a lot smaller than it actually is. Different corners have different atmospheres. The reception was very friendly and professional. The menu offers a variety of traditional French/Belgian cuisine, with forays... More

Central location, with convenient adequate parking. Large rooms with neat, quality furnishings. Was enjoyable to sit outside on the terrace in early Spring sunshine. Friendly, attentive service with an interesting menu selection to have a choice available for everyone. Portion size was good and well presented. Reasonably priced with a good quality vs value proposition.

First visit to Passade, on arrival warm welcome and quick service of drinks. The variety of food was good, presented well. The service was efficient but not rushed and a great selection of wines.
