What a gem this restaurant turned to be. A very pretty setting, great staff and service and excellent food and a lovely cozy feeling. The 3 course meal was excellent as were the other choices on the menu. A lovely wine list and an overall great dining experience.

In my last review of Taverne Du Passage, I believe I was a little harsh. My wife still has very fond recollections of her mussels and frites - so a return trip was demanded. As my wife knew that the huge portion of mussels and frites would be enough - only I had a starter. The mixed cheese and shrimp... More

Visiting my daughter in Belgium and looking for some authentic food when we came upon this place. Yes it was a bit pricey but the food was amazing. Place was elegant and staff was nice for being a busy night during the flower carpet weekend. Loved it!

La Taverne is like a throwback to a more genteel era, one of excellence, comfort, polished interiors of restaurants, superb food and professionalism in the service industry. We had eel in green sauce, probably the best that we have had in a long time and a delicious "filet american", i.e., tartare steak. The only drawback is the limited kind of... More

Right in the Galerie, it was a convenient place to have lunch. White tablecloths and a distinctly upscale feel and prices were a bit high, but if you want something a bit nicer this is it. The food was quite good.

Very nice and I think original art deco interieur. Got a warm welcome and a nice window table. Menue offers a brought selection of differnt dishes. Prices are not too high and you get really value for money. As it looks also Brussels citizens come here, not only tourists. Entree Maatjes resp. soupe de poissons were really good but be... More

A colleague and I had a late dinner here. We both had steak and a bottle of the house red, which was excellent. The steak was extremely tender and tasty. The service was super.

This is an old favourite of mine that turned into a huge disappointment during my last visit. The service was "pathetic". The waiter was at the limit of the "acceptable" or tolerable rudeness. The order was not taken properly. Once the errors were corrected, the food was at best "average". This restaurant used the "whoa" me by the quality of... More

That is what you will say when they show you the bill. Quality of food is really low too. I took "our speciality" les croquettes aux crevettes and they were so bad they made me crave some processed food from the frozen-foods aisle, then had some nice fillet though randomly cooked as we asked the same (medium) but got something...
