Fantastic atmosphere

La Taverne du Passage is a classic Parisian-like dining institution. The front-room is the most impressive and a visit worth in itself. The food is classic and "courant" - nothing flamboyant, but both my mayonaise crevettes and my ris de veau were excactlys as they should be. Good wines at decent... read more

Although we greeted with the Bon Jeau, the waiter habded us French menus. No big deal, however the couple of 3 sitting next to us saw we were struggling and came to our aid. They do have English menus but you have to ask. The aloof manner even caused our newly found friends that lived there to remark on the... More

There must be some class to this restaurant. Too bad neither of the dishes I had tasted good. I ordered a vegetable soup, but got tomato soup. No service around to complain to. The service is totally inattentive and do take their time. The main fish dish did not taste good. The potatoes were undercoojed. No I have eaten at... More

This restaurant serves up typical, traditional Belgian cuisine. The steaks and chops are excellent, as are the steamed mussels. I shared a chateaubriand with 2 other colleagues. It was excellent, if a bit too rare. The peppercorn and mushroom sauces were quite nice. Excellent selection of wines. At an earlier visit I had a very nice wiener schnitzel. Even though... More

The mussels were good but the rest (albeit specialities) was very average. Not particularly well prepared, thick sauce that looked overcooked and the service was average.

This is a Brussels classic restaurant. When you enter it is as though you step back in time. The staff acts accordingly; very friendly. The restaurant serves all the Belgian classic dishes. The food is well prepared.

Been at this restaurant twice, first time recommend by the hotel due to late arrival to the city and second one by own choice. Food is delicious, had salmon mouseline, salmon ciboulette, cabilloud royal and mussels. All four dishes were tasty and well prepared. Service was decent, cannot complain. Reasonable price.

This is an attractive art deco space within the Galeries Saint Hubert.The service is good in a Belgian / French way, by which I mean it is knowledgable and efficient but not indulgent. The menu is full of Brasserie classics, which it seems to have become difficult to find. I had the Sole Meunière washed down with a carafe of... More

Loved: the location, next to the passage du roi, the quiet ambiance, the food and the delicious deserts. Didn't like the high prices, but I guess that these prices in restaurants are usual in Bruxels.
