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.

Locale situato praticamente di fronte al celebre Manneken Pis, è abitato da innumerevoli fratellini del sudetto omino pisciante: bambole, marionette ovunque. A parte l’arredamento molto suggestivo, anche la scelta delle birre è ottima. Tutte belghe ovviamente, dalle tripel ai lambic (di altissima qualità, questi ultimi: 3 Fonteinen, cantillon, Tilquin, Beersel, ecc), da accompagnare con qualche formaggio tradizionale o altri piatti tipici. Lo raccomando!!

Häftig lokal och värt ett besök bara för den sakens skull. Lätt att tankarna glider iväg till hur det måste ha sett ut här en gång i tiden då den här dockteatern var aktiv. Ostbricka som är helt ok och ölutbudet är för tillfället ganska julfokuserat men det finns en hel del att välja på. Trevlig personal.

Visited in October 2012.
The dolls, those freaking creepy dolls everywhere. It’s funny but a bit disturbing. They’re everywhere, except outside, which is where we sat. We had a table on the edge of the property, with in arms reach of the massive crowd of tourists snapping pictures of the manneken pis statue. That whole area is full of manneken pis trinkets including a giant chocolate one next door to the real thing. I understand that this place is touristy but the service was garbage. The guy was nice enough when he wanted to be but he only showed up once to take our order and that was quite a while after we sat down. Yeah yeah, we get it, your tip is built in to the price so you don’t have to give a crap about being friendly but you don’t need to be a prick about it. Next time I go to Europe I’m wearing the Homer Simpson Uncle Sam shirt ( http://i.imgur.com/IT3tits.jpg ).
The bottle list is pretty good. Not quite Akkurat but pretty good regardless. I got some random saison that I had never had and everyone else also got ticks. Besides ticks they have some lambic, some saison, and some trappist beers. I didn’t ask if they sill had any but inside the building were several cases of empty 1999 Bellevue Selection Lambic bottles.
Over all this is a pretty cool place but like much of Europe if you’re not pretending like you have a lot of money you’ll be treated like dirt. It’s funny that a lot of the scores I’ve been giving are considerably lower than the average but that’s almost entirely due to the shitty service.
