Food is great and wonderful. The venison suggestions are really well executed. The cooking of meat and vegetable is sharp. We can taste that everything is fresh. The chef came to ask of everything was good. The waitress is just as nice as professional. She has a good knowledge in wine and helped us choosing the appropriate one for our... More

Went there on the basis of reviews here on tripadvisor. We were not disappointed. Had 2 x the more extensive menu, half a bottle of water, a bottle of house red and a couple of coffees for €107 which I think was excellent value for money given the quality of the food. We will return.

This place was a real discovery. We were looking for a place to eat close to Genval, where our b&b was located. Every single place, but this one, had unaffordable prices! (and unmotivated ones, giving the "middle of nowhere" position...). I've found la Tapenade thanks to TripAdvisor advice, and it was a real surprise. Really good and fresh food (Nems... More

I must say this is probably the best service I've ever had in Belgium. I walked in on Saturday night without a reservation and the waitress was very welcoming. I opted for the 4 course 'menu degustation' which I highly recommend as it was delicious. The waitress checked in on me at each course to see if it was ok... More

We had a nice diner in Family at La Tapenade. They have great service, great food, execellent service. You can sit outside to enjoy your meal while listening to French music played by people in the the street. The restaurant is well located close to the Flower Market. You will find the price affortable.

Not one to write many reviews on restaurants,but the three times i've eaten here, it's always fantastic food and service. The last visit was with work collegues, a rather large group for the size of the restaurant and we were a bit noisy but the service was attentive from start to finish and everyone left pleased! IOnly advice, you need... More

Eaten here twice, once with my wife and then again with my wife and fatherl The food is generally good and the price about right for Belgium (only downside is the decor, it just doesn't feel like right (no character)) My problem is that on the second occasion the Waiter/Owner made a mistake withe bill. He provided us with the... More
