Nice trendy place with good food, fast service and peaceful environment for a discussions. We were three persons and all had salads, and were very satisfied with the portions. Since it was a sunny day the outdoor terrace really paid off.

Want to sit outside, enjoy the environment (and cars/trains) then the terrace of the Passade is a welcome place to have your dinner or business lunch although you could enjoy it inside as well. Menu's are well prepared, delicious and service is well taken care off. Only downside is the bill. A little overquoted for what it is.

The building used to house a furniture shop long ago. Then it was turned into a billiard hall and now a restaurant. What a history. The conversion must have cost a handsome amount if money. The result is very pleasing if you like modern and grey. The menu on iffer is excellent. Nothing too risqueè in an original presentation with... More

We could book a table on the phone and immediately got a confirmation text back. I loved the service. The waiters were very friendly and helpful. It's no problem if you have an allergy of some kind. The food was very good and the portions were big. There were fresh vegetables with every course.

You can choose out of a large list. Perfect business resto near the motorway. A bit on the expensive side. Very nice terrasse in the summer

We have been here a couple of times and it was always very good and worth the money. However the last time the food was poor, far too expensive for what we got.

This restaurant has same nice food but I think it's to expensive for what it is. It has a nice design and it has a nice interior. The waiters are friendly. Like you can read in the other reviews, the price - quality is not what it should be. The location is very accessible and there is a lot of... More

We had diner with four (2 couples). It was my first time, and was pleasantly surprised with the menu and the excellent choice. Staff was very friendly and service was impeccable. What we had was very good, although it is a bit expensive. Drinks are quite expensive - 7 EURO for a glass of (good) Portugese wine is certainly not... More

Nice interior-design, good service, everything is well-presented, but the food isn't overwhelming. There is a lack of taste that holds no risk so it's a bit boring. Price-quality isn't really in balance, little to expensive for what you recieve...
