Not off to a good start, barely through the front door we were confronted with the aggravated barman who was in attack-dog mode, screaming at us that we better have reservations. Not exactly a warm welcome…luckily we had a reservation. The waiters seem to be mostly franco-français with a condescending attitude combined with that notion of self-importance, which is certainly... More

Located in the classy Galerie, the Taverne gives the appeareance of not having changed since the 1930s - thank goodness. The kind of restaurant pastiched ad nauseaum in London but which the French and Belgians create as normal, the Taverne is the kind of place where normal middle-class people who have no great pretensions but know and like classic good...

A beautiful restaurant with professional staff !! For an appetizer we ordered soup - which was excellent. For a main course we ordered fish and meat were delicious! Finally, we ordered 3 desserts and everything tastes delicious! Prices are reasonable - 4 people including beer - 140 euros.

Recommended restaurant for their delicious mussels! Service was slow but friendly. It was brightly lit, not my favorite, but nice for a casual dinner.

This Belgian restaurant is located at "Galerie St. Hubert", a famous glazed shopping arcade in Brussels. This restaurant have good atmosphere, nice dishes and also their services are fine. アーケードの「ギャルリーサンチュベール」の中ほどにあるお店で、落ち着いたいい雰囲気です。家族で行きましたが、子供用メニュー(牛ステーキか鶏かサーモン)もありました。ベルギーのレストランにしては出てくるのが早かったです。舌平目のムニエルは、身が厚くいい材料を使っていておいしかったです。客層は、ベルギー人の年配の方が多かったです。

We were looking forward to having lunch at this Brussels classic but found it disappointing: dismissive service, mediocre food, and way too expensive for what we were served. Would not recommend.

I'm a Belgian living overseas and used to visit this restaurant almost religiously on each visit but NO more. The service received was terribly rude to the point that I had to leave the restaurant with my entire family. We endured up going to 'Les armes de Bruxelles' just a few steps away where we received first class service, the... More

Located in the marvellous 19th century Galerie de la Reine, this restaurant is one of the top favourites of both local people and tourists. We very much enjoyed their 'sole meunière' and 'steak tartare' and above all the friendly ambiance of the place. Do book your table in advance (02 5125751) it is a very busy taverne.
