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.

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

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

Dear sir, thank you very much for this very interesting comment. We pay a lot of attention to our customer feedback in order to improve our service. Evenif we are in a tourist area, we do serve in majority belgians. Our experienced waiters are indeed paradoxical - They are certainly phlegmatic and sometime too ironic and they have their own...

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
