Ok pub food but presented as something more. We found the service perfunctory - more attention to customers would have been appreciated. The seating is comfortable if you are fortunate enough to be given a side table, but the centre of the restaurant is more...like a communal dining experience - not uncommon in this part of town. Not terrible, but not good enough to encourage a returnMore

Service was a bit slow but the restaurant was very busy. Meal was adequate but not worth the prices. I guess you pay for the location.

Very nice restaurant with a lovely atmosphere. A bit pricey but justifiable for quality of food and location. Staff very attentive, quick service, had both meat and fish and salads, not a single comment. I understand it is often full, but they could accommodate our...party of three anyway. better reserve in advance, though. Definitely worth the visit, for food and the restaurant itself.More

Back to 1950. Communal tables. We call this places in Argentina “bodegones”. The food is very good and they have vegetarian/vegan options, which is not easy to find in traditional places. On the other side, it gets messy and I never got my tomato side...salad. Prices are not the cheapest but the area is also an expensive spot. Good variety of fish, pasta and sides.More

Dined twice and we enjoyed both times. Their beef was very tender, but the snitchel was on the dry side. Excellent chocolate mouse. The restaurant closes at 11:00 PM, but they let you eat in peace way after closing time.

We have been going here for years and found this visit quite disappointing. Staff were brusque (and it's no longer necessary to put up with that everywhere), portions were small (and smaller than they used to be), the frites were cold on arrival (and not...tasty besides)... I'd have to say no to Taverne for next time. Oh well.More

I went there hoping to give a taste of great traditional Belgian cuisine to a foreign guest. At first contact with the staff, it was clear service and politeness was not their priority but that was OK, I was doing the talking and my friend...couldn't understand. At least, I was thinking the food should be exceptional for this place to stay in business. Well, I was in for a disappointment. For example, I ordered one of the simplest dishes: Bouchee a la Reine. What arrived on the table was tasteless and the presentation was messy; you can find it better prepared in any highway or supermarket restaurant in Belgium.More

I’m really surprised by the negative reviews! My husband and I just had dinner at La Taverne Du Passage, and we really enjoyed ourselves. All of the staff with whom we interacted were extremely friendly and pleasant, and the food was good. My leek soup...was tasty, and the Flemish stew (beef carbonnade) was very good. Admittedly, some of the beef was a bit fatty, and some tough, but we’ve had this issue with this dish in many restaurants. The fries were delicious - perfectly golden brown and meaty! We’d definitely return the next time we’re in Brussels.More

Arriving at the restaurant they made me and my wife wait for half an hour with the WORST ATITUDE EVER. Like we were unwelcome. Finally we sat down and the waiter just wouldn’t come to the table. I raised my hand 3 times (patiently), and...when the waiter finally came to my and the table of an older gentleman on my left he said: “If you don’t want to wait, that’s the door!” In the most cliche moment of a French restaurant! That is just unacceptable human behavior. DO NOT GO!!!! Racist, xenophobic people!!!!!!!!More

Great atmosphere! Traditional menu in a restaurant coming from another era. The food is great, but the service can be a bit slow in rush hours. Definitely worths the wait. Top class desserts. Must visit when in Brussels!
