Classic Brasserie food well executed

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... read 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.

What else to say, if you never tasted a Belgian waffle, you have 2 kinds, the one from liege which comes from the south of Belgian and is served caramelized and usually eaten in the street (you will smell it from far away) and the Brussels one which is the one I ate. It is serves hot, is very light... More

This restaurant is the worst restaurant I have ever been too in Belgium. I thought it would be great as the waiter said it has not changed for 90 years Lang with the fact that Belgium is my favourite country for eating out. We were given the wrong food for 3 out of the 4 of us and then told... More

As you walk through the Galerie de la Reine passing divine chocolate shops, be sure to stop and have dinner at La Taverne du Passage. Some friends of ours visited Brussels decades ago and highly recommended this restaurant - and we were so pleased that their tradition of service and quality continues. We ordered divine fish soup and mussels -... More

First, make sure you have a reservation. This place is located in the beautiful Galeries St Hubert. The menu is composed of a large selection of classic. This is a typical brasserie with great service.

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...
