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.
Ambiance - Really cool place. Dimmly lit with lots of dark wood decor and tons of dolls and trinkets. Almost felt a bit dark cabaret themed or perhaps that’s just me finding dolls spooky. Service - Friendly. Selection - Seemed to have plenty of beers but didnät explore the selection at all. Couldn’t resist to have a Taras Boulba on tap when in Brussels and this is the place where I got it. Food - Did not eat. Value - Fair. Additional comments - None!
Didn’t like this place. The peeing statue is in plain view of the café chairs, but that only means that it’s crowded by Asian tourists throughout the day. The service was slow, the waiters weren’t too friendly. Decent selection however, but prices weren’t too spectacular. Wouldn’t go again.
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!!
kook hit right on the head, this is right across from the manequin pis statue. easy to find location. with awesome decore of old puppets, wax from about 1000 candles , dried hops, with a 2nd story view. food was good bier list very average.
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.
Place near the pissing boy, so really center. Service is good. Selection is not huge, but cantillon lou pepes available (35 euros per bottle) and some other interesting stuff. Prices are reasonable for this part of the city. Fresh orval is only 4.30! Aged one is 5.20 (yes they have aged orval available, although not very old). Overall: not essential, but still good place to have a quick pint.
