Nicely surprised with this very traditional Brasserie/ restaurant in Les Galleries de La Reine. Try it if you are in city town.

Francophone Belgium isn't as economically dynamic as its Flemish neighbor, but they get better marks for leaving nice old cafes/brasseries/restaurants alone. Their Germanic northern compatriots by contrast are happy to respect historic building exteriors, but tend more, with a few noble exceptions (see next post), towards the ruthless modernisation of interiors. The Taverne du Passage first opened for business in... More

Always a pleasure to eat here for Belgian classics but particularly worthwhile in the autumn when game is in season. Pheasant and hare, prepared in many different ways, are particularly good. Decent wine list too at reasonable prices.

It was a long time since we had been to this restaurant but the food continues to be typically Belgian/French and excellent. But pricey. The atmosphere is cosy and in art deco style. We found the servers attentif and helpful in our choices.

I visit Brussels a fair amount and often find myself near the Grand Place, hungry but want to avoid the tourist places. A friend took me here. It was relaxing, with good service, good Belgium food and reasonably priced. Will definitely go back.

As soon as you enter you know you are in a conservative establishment and you know you will have a good meal. Service is excellent and correct. Of the 4 times I have eaten here the food has always been excellent. The cod is exceptional, as tis the house specialty filet pur. The entrecôte I had last time was out... More

the feel of going back in time to another era and age. the place has a special feel and look. the waiters could be less lunatic, the food better, but somehow everytime i am in brussels, i feel that i haven't been in brussels if i haven't had dinner here at least once.

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!
