The TAVERNE du PASSAGE is a well known restaurant in Brussels Galerie de la Reine, just near the rue des Bouchers. As many people sometimes do, we stepped in for a meal before the show we attended in the Théâtre des Galeries. Though there was many people already eating, we didn't have to wait so long to begin eating. The... More

When in Brussels, you must have mussels served with chips (French Fries). Also, try the house kir (cocktail) to start your meal.

Taverne du Passage is one of the more popular restaurant along Rue des Bouchers. The service was good. We ordered its famous Belgian chicken stew, hamburger maison, grilled cod fish and salad to share. The chicken stew is unique and need some getting used-to. The other dishes were also delicious. The restaurant offered an extensive wine list for wine enthusiasts.... More

Terrible service. Food is very bad! And cold! Prices are too high even for Brussels. Especially when you get uneatable food...

This is an interesting place, and depending on your frame of mind and culture, you'll either love it or hate it. It's a traditional old-world Belgian brasserie, with good Belgian fare at pretty reasonable prices, but there are some elements to it that, uh, you need to expect if you don't want to get frustrated... The service is fantastic, and... More

In the middle of the tourist traps a hidden gem, you walk by it as doesn't look like much from the outside. A real old style brasserie, simple but great food and old time service with waiters in livrets.

We stopped in for lunch shortly after arriving in Brussels and liked it so much we did dinner 2 nights later. Make sure to reserve, as we were lucky to get a table for lunch and the dinner reservation was necessary because it was full. They have a huge range of Belgian and French dishes, great decor, excellent staff, and... More

Having a location in a tourist area and being a nice building allow this restaurant to be full. The quality of the food is under any standard (i.e: Vianesse steak taste only like butter) , service forget two of our orders (American beef and Salad).

We loved the location, the decor (see photo), the white linen table cloths, the waiter with a great sense of humour, the house wines (Cote du Rhone & Pinot blanc), the salmon ciboulette and the frites - and the flexible dinner hours! We dined at 6. Worth repeating next time we're in Brussels.

Ordering a flight of beer was fun as we got to try 4 local beers. But is was hard to get the servers to wait on us when we sat down even thought they weren't very busy. The fries were a disappointment as we ordered them well done and none of the orders came even close. The beers were very... More
