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.

The best thing about this place is its location. It's just off the highway between Brussels and Antwerp. So ideal for a quick meeting if you're looking for a place to eat or meet between those 2 cities. I judge a restaurant by its vegetarian options and they are close to non existent in this case apart from the traditional... More

I visited Passade for lunch with a bunch of my friends. And I must admit that I had one of the best meal. The ambiance of this restaurant is superb!! The staff is very co-operative and friendly. Lovely place. It won't disappoint you. Visiting again soon :)

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...
