t0rin0  (1180) Do Not Resuscitate, California | November 18, 2013
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.

Nice and cozy pub in the tourist area. Good selection of belgian classic plus for example most of de la Senne beers for a reasonable price. Fully packed at 5 pm on a Saturday but still relaxed. Would go there again.

That’s truly a nice place to spend an evening while in Brussels. There is an adequate selection of beers to choose from. The interior design creates a warm atmosphere which makes the place really worth a visit.

Great place a few feet from Manneken Pis (you can sit on the terrace and watch it). Looks like from another century, packed full, it surly shows all the history that this place is renowned for. Very good selection of beers.

Intim plass med stort særpreg og sjarme, her er det umulig å ikke trives. Godt utvalg, og hva kan vel være bedre enn å nyte en velavkjølt gueuze mens man ser ut (og ned) på alle turistene som stimler sammen foran en liten (og av og til utkledt) fet liten gutt med inkontinens? Service er svært varierende på en så travel plass som dette. En tidlig ettermiddag fikk jeg fin og humoristisk oppmerksomhet, En travel kveld var der bare slitne og stressede kelnere.

Très bel estaminet avec une superbe déco à l’ancienne, notamment pour qui aime les marionnettes de bois. Terrasse agréable avec vue sur les touristes qui s’extasient devant le Manneken Pis. Très belle carte avec quelques raretés (Gouden Carolus Cuvee van de Keizer 2000, 2001 et 2002!!!) et très peu de bières communes si ce n’est la Leffe blonde qui semblait perdue au milieu de toutes les bonnes bouteilles! Petite sélection changeante et agréable au fût. Personnel parfois un peu brusque mais toujours qualifié pour conseiller l’amateur.

Good selection, especially lots of Lambiek beers. It’s right accros Manneke Pis, so it’s fun to laugh about all the crazy tourists.
