“Nice place to eat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2012

This restaurant is situtated in the beautifull building: Tour & Taxis in Brussels. It's worthwhile to go there. If you like to have some people around go there at noon. There are a lot of business people eating there but you can go also as a tourist.
Food is very good and people very friendly.

“beautiful decor, too bad food doesn't follow same standard”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2012

Beautiful restaurant, attentive staff. Impossible not to be disappointed when you are served though. Food sounds so inviting on menu, but in reality is bland, boring and tasteless. I had scallops for starter that tasted like rubber, and fish for main which seemed like it had been frozen for months.

“Good, but...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2010

Let's be frank, if one goes to a restaurant for all what is around your dish, Tasso is "uncontournable", meaning you've to go there at least once. The location, the recently renovated Tour & Taxis complex, is imposing and the outcome of the renovation is spectacular. The interior design of the restaurant is just great. Service is caring and attentive, there's parking space aplenty and it's not even that expensive. The food, though, is not their strong point. There's only one Ferran Adria (or Massimo Bottura, for those loving new italian cooking) and they are not at Tasso. Mixing molecular cuisine with traditionally made, simply cooked dishes doesn't always work. It doesn't for tasso... And their wine list did not particularly impres me.

“most dissapointing restaurant visit of the year”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2009

I celebrated my birthday this year in Tasso at Tour et Taxis in Brussels.
It's a really nice setting in one of Brussel's most beautifull industrial heritage buildings.
The restaurant is really nicely decorated and used to serve very nice food... but things have changed apparently.

I had booked for 7, they had dressed the table for 8 (a bit strange, if you have a booking for 7) but that turned out just great, as we ended up being 8 people in the end.
We took aperitif in the chairs at the entrance, nothing special, we got some peanuts on special request, because otherwise we weren't going to get any.

We have had 8 starters, 8 mains and 1 dessert, a couple of bottles of Sancerre, water and coffees. Price: almost 600€, not a bargain, definitely not if you compare it to the low quality food and very poor service.
The restaurant was only 25% filled, a lot of waiters just hanging around doing absolutely nothing. They even didn't notice that we were calling them or putting all our hands in the air to attract their attention.
DO NEVER ORDER THE IRISH LAMB as it's in a pastry-dough and completely dried out. We gave notice of this and the answer we got: 'yes, we know, it's old fashioned, we know it's dry, we've heard that before". There was no sauce with it, the plate rather empty.

The food is highly priced and of mediocre quality.
I must say that the sashimi was really nice, which many of us took as a starter, and the fish was really fresh. That's about all where they scored well.
