For an evening meal the place was basically full on a Friday night but the service was good and positive. The food was good and with sauce as i had sole and my partner a entrecote steak. Just cooked potatoes and frites so you need to add vegetables or salad if that interests you. Wine is available by pitcher size... More

I lived in Brussels for a little while and had the chance to visit many restaurants -- but never this one. On a recent trip back, I popped in for dinner (on my own) after a little shopping in Galeries Saint Hubert... it was 6pm and there were only two other parties inside (an American couple and a French pair)....

All the favourites on the menu here, carefully prepared and nicely served. Veal sweetbreads, chicken vol-au-vent, even beautifully cooked best end lamb chops served with flageolets. This is the authentic "cuisine de grand-mere". A nice art deco interior in the Galleries St Hubert minutes from Grand Place

Due to its proximity to the Grand Place, this is a great place for dinner should you wish to spend a night out in town. We've always enjoyed the Franco-Belge cusine that they serve with pride. Both the meat and fish dishes are served in generous portions, and the service is swift yet refined. One of our favourite restaurants in... More

The place was packed on the Thursday night we went which may account for the slow service. Our waiter seemed very rushed, and as a result got two of our orders wrong. The food was excellent, and a treat for the more adventurous eater including brains, kidneys and sweetbreads, and the moules were a generous helping. Two courses, with a... More

I ve visited this restaurant 4-5 times with my boyfriend who leaves in Brussels to eat mussels. The food was good and the place nice enough. Considering that most restaurants and cafes in Brussels are not that clean we found Taverne du Passage a decent choise to have a lunch. However, last time we visited this restaurant, a week ago,...

There seemed to be a number of parties similar to the eight of us, with longer communal tables. I would not recommend this restaurant for a quiet, intimate dinner. I ordered mussels which were good. The frites were okay, but I was more focused on the quantity of mussels in front of me. We had a bit of confusion about... More

Situated in the city center, under the famous glass dome, this restaurant offers you various types of food. The waiters, even they are not young anymore, they are quick, helpful and very nice ! Atmosphere is ok, the food also. If you take a break there, I recommend you " carbonnades de boeuf a la flamande"...a great belgian food. They... More

Beautiful, lovely passage but you can eat much better elsewhere. ( I live in Brussels) The food is good but certainly not more than that. The service is typical Brussels: you get what you asked for and that's it. Expect no smiling waiter and see in his eyes his 'don't stay after eating' look. And, vert important: the croquettes crevettes... More
