We were visiting the Neuhaus Chocolatiers on a recent trip to Brussels and while my friends and I were shopping for chocolates the husbands procured an outside table at La Taverne du Passage across the walkway. I had he mussels for lunch and they were very good as were the fries. My husband was adventurous and had the eel in... More

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

Inside is well decorated but the service was not very fast ( was fully booked ).They had a good selection of wines and the Moules-frites were the best we... More

Given that it is in the Galerie St. Hubert just off the Grand Place, the first thought is "tourist trap". Once inside, the service was a little slow to start with although it could have been because it was a busy Saturday night. The menus were available in several languages and it was possible to see into the kichen which... More

This place come highly recommended. This is a big open space restaurant. When we arrived at about 2100hrs on Sunday it's almost empty. The only clean/made table was on the corner and not suitable for someone like me who suffers from claustrophobia. We sat down at a suitable but dirty table and politely ask the water to change the table... More

I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of food. It only got a 3.5 from tripadvisor so I was expecting a humdrum meal. I ordered escargot and found it to be quite tasty, followed with the moules with frites. The moules was cooked just right- very juicy and the broth was good. We sat under the gallery - outside tables.... More

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.
