I have made several trips to this place, so decided to rate it. It’s right across the street from the Fountain of Pis. This is a beer cafe that also serves good cheeses and other light fare. The beer selection consists of around 100 Belgian standards, good beers but nothing that is particularly hard to find. The cheese selection is excellent, and the ambience is very nice, especially when outdoor seating is available.

Ended up here a few times during our visit to Brussels in June 2015.

The decor is weird. Creepy ass dolls all over the place. Kind of gives the place it’s own character though. One cool thing though was the list of groups that had dressed up the Manneken Pis, dating back to the ’30s with lots of American soldiers mentioned during WWII. First time here, we sat down inside. Table service only, no orders at the bar. I had a couple of Taras Boulba and Saison IV which were both in exceptional shape. The beers were cheap as well (about €4 a pour) which was impressive considering the location right by Brussels’ most popular tourist trap. Actually forgot to look at the bottle list as we were tired after a day of ticking. Our server was attentive, efficient and even cracked a few jokes. On our second visit, we sat outside which would’ve been nicer than it was if it wasn’t for the massive amount of tourists by Manneken Pis. All in all, I’ll gladly come back and get drunk on awesome, cheap draft beer once again.

Very good selection of beers with a beer list only for Christmas beers. Good food but not a big selection. Wonderful ambience and atmosphere.

This is a mix of theatre, junk shop and traditional beer bar all in the same square as the ’is that it?’ statue in central Brussels. We have always tended to end up in the same part of the pub, so I can’t say I have seen everything it has to offer, but with the traditional puppets lining the walls and a whole host of oddities, there is enough to keep the imagination going. The service is attentive and helpful, even if you don’t want to eat. The beer menu seemed a little restricted on this visit, I struggled a little to find anything really interesting. All in all a pub we will continue to visit on our infrequent trips. Definitely worth a look.

Posto super comodo in pieno centro a 2 passi dal bambino che fa pipì simbolo della città . Una via di mezzo tra un ristorante e bar con una selezione molto classica per il Belgio ma che cmq rimane alta in qualità . Servizio ai tavoli pronto e gentile .

Beautiful and interesting looking interior, like you just walked in to curiosity shop. Highest marks for ambiance. Friendly service. Selection is pretty good, some nice Saisons and Gueuzes for example. Food is nothing special, but I had a decent lasagne to satisfy my late night empty stomach. Go here for the atmosphere first and have a decent beer while admiring the surroundings.

Beautiful place inside! Next to Manneken Pis, some outside seating and two rooms inside.Cozy, decorated with manikins. Good beer selection (Belgian beers only), some food, I tried a nice cheese. Service was OK for that busy night. They found a small table for me next to the bar. Good prices. Cash only.

Visited 10-SEP-2015 and Again two days later with Ulkløbben. Friendly staff. Nice beer selection. Food is nothing speciel. Had Spaghetti Bolognese a late night and at a cheap Price it took the hunger bit did not do a lot more than that. Gueze served in basket and poured by waiter. Kind of cheap prices.
