A very nice corner tavern in a busy spot for people watching. They had a special beer tent set up outside for the Belgian beer weekend festival. Had trouble getting a seat here and had to come back at a slower time. Atmosphere is nice inside and out. Ok service. Menu was quite good. Definitely worth a stop and location is convenient.

This is one of Brussels most typical old beer taverne. Its all about Brussels, the Mannekenpis and of course beer. The atmosphere is great and typical of an old taverne, the staff is very nice and also funny. The decoration is very much old beer orianted and you can see old crates of bottles of Westvleteren a bit everywhere among other well known brands. The beer menu is quite long, although they have 4 draft beers, they have 15 beers of the week, and I have counted 142 beers on the menu. They even have some rare bottle and some vintage beers.
This is a must go for anyone visiting Brussels, if you like beers but even if you dontí
Edit: Been there agai the other day, they have a really great beer list, and they had some great Xmas beers, even Níice Chouffe by draft. :D

First place to stop and have a beer after a brief walk from the hotel. Being across from the "pis" gave it that extra something. Decent selection, a nice waiter and pleasant eve at the tables out front sharing beers with my friends made for a great time.

Spent almost an entire day here on our Brussels trip 2 years ago. After searching and asking for a good Belgian beer bar (none of the Bruxellensians could tell us where there was such a place, and I didnít know of Ratebeer then) we found one next to the busiest place of Brussels... Had lots of beer here while being gazed upon by all the puppets and dressed up Manneken Pis statues, almost picked up 2 euroís from the stairs, went away for some food (too pricy here) and came back for more beer. Looks a bit odd at first, but makes you feel at home very quickly, although the waiter refused to understand Dutch at first while my French sucks.

One of the best place in downtown.
Just front of Mannekenpis, you canít miss it.
Selection is quiet good for a belgian pub. Service is just amazing. They do a really nice work overthere.
Food is well made but common.
Enjoy that place !

Nice little spot right by the Manneken-Pis.
Busy outside, people donít seem to be going inside.
Inside has a nice setting with old dolls that were used in Brusselsí famous toone puppet string shows, all represent typical "Bruxellois" image as one could say.
Waiter was very friendly, beer list is nice and can offer some nice little gems at a fair price considering the location.

Nondescript place, given itís in a location that would seem to be a tourist trap. And it would be exactly that were it not for the fact that they happen to have a few gems on the beer menu, with a focus on lambik. Faro will be on tap most likely. The interior decor is wonderfully Flemish kitch, and the outdoor patio is spacious. However, the food menu is sparse and overpriced.

Across from that stupid statue. Had a couple of good beverage choices. The croque monsieur was poor value, though, as it was almost all bread for for seven euros thatís not good enough.
