I have made several trips to this place, so decided to rate it. Itís 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.

Rather camped and dark on the inside, loads of old puppets, bottles, beerboxes, old furniture etc. Not really cozy, nor creapy, infact more like a puppet museum actually. Nice outdoor sitting, sunshine and 28 degrees is perfekt for a beer. Nice service, even though extremely busy, we had our beer pretty fast, and with a smile. 4 not so interesting taps, huge bottle list including some nice Cantillon etc. Might be a little pricy, but not to bad for the area. Sitting outside adds the bonus of watching hordes of tourists gaze at a boy peeing.

Visited in 2011. Very cool place with a unique interior and located close to Manneken Pis. It got very crowded in the evenings. It had some nice beers but the selection wasnít as good as the other beer pubs in the area.

Located just opposite Manneken Pis, this pub is replete with all sorts of kitschy-kitschy-yea-yea-yea stuff from wannabe 1910s, dangling from the ceiling and every wall, nook and cranny. From figures of nuns and Bedouins to dusty Westvleteren bottles turned upside down (the beer is not to be had here, by the way). The staff are correct but not exactly friendly. When I placed my order at the bar, they fixed me with their gaze and firmly stated: "You have to be seaten (sic!)." The selection is good if you are rather new into Belgian ticks, and includes good stuff from Cantillon and other decent brews, mostly bottled. I have not tried the food. Rather pricey. I donít think I will be back unless Injust happen to pass by.

Went there a few times now. Last time was a warm summer night and the terrace next to Brusselsí most famous little guy is just great. Lambic menu is nice but the somewhat special bottles were not on stcok anymore. Other beers are the usual suspects...

Very friendly service here . Best so far in brussels . They even try their very best to speak dutch ! The beers were poured perfectly , only a tad more knowledge and its perfect . I fully expect that to come later on . offerings are nice, but nothing really rare . Prices are high , but decent . Atmosphere is very nice . Really a nice place to sit . Recommended

Very touristic bit still a lovely place with the usual good selection of Belgian beers .. We had our lunch here that was good enough .. The staff tend to be more professional as in a restaurant rather than in a bar but itís not a bad thing ..

Next to Manneken Pis. Big surprise when I turned my head. Just heard the name, letís enter ! Old fashioned emblem. Inside, many puppets, toys, wooden chairs. A bit messy. But hey, thatís belgian folklore ! Great selection. I drank a Cantillon kriek in a beautiful wicker basket. A bit expensive, I think 8.5 Ä for a 37,5cL. Ok for this area... Friendly staff. A must-see in Brussels.

Nice Belgium pub right beside of Manneken Pis. Wide selection of Belgium beers ~150 bottles. Professional staff. Great atmosphere. Well decorated like an old style. The Best pub at Brussels so far for our 4 days visit.

Located right in front of Manneken Pis, this might be the weirded beer bar I event went too. Ambiance is nice with all those dolls and other decorations, but it can probably freak you at night with a few of beers under the belts. Very friendly service and also very friendly customers. I chatted with a very nice local all the time I was there. The server wasnít too knowledgeable about beer, but enough to help beginners. Small selection of beers on tap, including Taras Boulba from De la Senne. Bottle selection is larger with good quality (including a few lambics and other good Belgian). The selection on their website was quite up to date. The price are reasonable/good (depending on the bottle) for the area (touristic center). Thereís some food available, but I didnít try any. It worth a visit for the ambiance, and thereís enough good beer there keep you in for a couple hours at least.
