Waiters know there business, though not all to the same degree. Not a very large selection, but always a nice selection from tap. Condensed beer list, but top quality.

Puppet theme. Good beer selection, decent food, lots of good cheeses. Mostly young and inexperienced waitstaff, but friendly, especially by Brussels standards. Don’t bend down to pick up the two euro coin on the stairs - it’s nailed down! Great for watching tourists go berserk over that puny ridiculous statue.

My first day in Belgium, jet-lagged, I went to the Cantillon brewery, the Mannekin Pis, and then stopped at this place for a respite. This place is adjacent to the Mannekin Pis, and is a great place to observe people at the statue and enjoy a great beer list (150+ beers) under a slightly creepy but cool marionette motif. This was the best beer bar I visited in Brussels (also saw Beer Circus, Delirium Café, and Beer Mania). Ambience is a bit strange...lots of puppets and other kitsch hanging from the ceiling...reminded me of what a 150-year old TGI Friday’s would look like if depicted in the movie EuroTrip, but somehow cooler than that. Selection was terrific. Our server was also quite good. He spoke excellent English, and had a good knowledge of what was in inventory and was able to give recommendations based on what members of our party said they liked in a beer. Everyone was happy with what he brought. I thought prices were quite reasonable. If you are in Brussels, and you like beer, it would be a tragedy to miss stopping at the Poech. Subsequent visits to other beer places recommended in Tim Webb’s excellent book Good Beer Guide: Belgium didn’t make me think anything less of the Poech – great selection, great service, a non-tourist feel despite being next adjacent to a major tourist attraction.

Directly across from Mannekin Piss, with a great little space. A good selection of gueuze and lambics.

A nice-looking place with lots of comics and Mannekin Pis memorabilia everywhere. A decent beer list, strong on Lambics. Good service.

3fourths  (1271) Boulder, Colorado | June 4, 2008| Updated August 11, 2009
A quality beer cafe located directly across the street from Mannekin Pis. Gueuze, kriek, trappist (incl. Westvleteren), a fine beer menu. We ordered a Girardin Gueuze and a plate of meat, cheese, pickles and pearl onions and sat outdoors to people watch and relax on a sunny but chilly mid-morning. Inside it’s wooden and dark but the interior has a lot of character. I’d put this in the must-visit group if you’re in central Brussels walking around, drinking and eating.

Excellent venue. Extensive beer list. Service depends on who is up and how that particular life is going. Very responsive over all. Love this place. It was fifties music while we were there. Get the Chimay cheese.

This is a very nice place, we went here several times. Just a perfect relaxing place with a good (not overwhelming) selection - no vintage card - but all you need. Orval, De Dolle, Cantillon, Hanssens..... you know the rest. I will be back !!!

Good selection of beers, nice friendly and fast service. Rather crowded. Nice atmosphere. I will go back next time for sure. Only stayed for a few beers in the end of a drinking day though. Was surprised the urinating midget wasn’t bigger.
