stopped a few times for a quick lunch, atmosphere quit dark, nice noisy terrace outside but the passing cars and trucks make it too noisy. Food looks great but tastes average. Service ok. Rather expensive for the food you get.

I found Passade by accident - I drove past it a few times and since the car park was always full, I thought I'd try it. It's a great place - wonderful atmosphere, tastefully decorated and providing great service from helpful and professional staff. We went as a family, and the menu catered for all our tastes, including the 5... More

The location invites people to arrive in a car, very convinient. It does not look anywhere as nice from the outside as it is on the inside. The service is good, the menu very varied with 'surf and turf', which is not so common in Belgium. Wine list to go with the large choice of food.

We took the 3-course menu for €32 (drinks excluded). Only the amuse and dessert were any good. The starter was a salmon carpaccio that tasted like nothing (unless you expect salmon to be watery). The main dish contained scampis that were still cold (from the freezer). None of the dishes had any vegetables worth mentioning. I wonder whether any of... More

Second time in this super restaurant... Service was outstanding (there is a guy who can explain you the taste of all the Gin's they have on the card) and meals were very nice ! You should not miss the big outdoor terrace if the weather is ok.

The food presented is very nice. Nothing to comment on that. But this is not the main reason for the review this time. The people working there were having a great dynamics, they were laughing, joking, smiling... but still very professional. They really seemed to enjoy working there and with each other. Great team! Thumbs up for the staff...

Great food for a good price. That is the reason why we keep on going back here. There's also a big outdoor terrace.

This is a place you shouldn't miss when visiting the beautiful city of MECHELEN (between Antwerp and Brussels). The bar-restaurant offers lots of space ( there is also a stylish inside corner for smokers) and the service is outstanding. However : this a place (near the highway to Brussels and Antwerp) that is frequently visited by groups of friends and... More

In the beginning we were a bit overwhelmed by the noise of two larger groups but of course this is not something the restaurant can be blamed for. Once they got their food it was better :-) Very friendly service (apparently by the owner himself) and excellent food. We choose the januari menu which surprised us with every course. We... More

Visited Passade last week and we had a blast of a time, we asked for typical Belgian beers and we got them all, we even got a box of glasses for souvenir, great and delicious food and it was prepared with love by an American chef ! We'll be back soon, thank you for the hospitality !
