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.
Visited July 12/15. With Tim Webb’s and Joe Stange’s "Good Beer Guide Belgium" in hand, I made this my first stop in Brussels. Lots of puppets, although I was on the second floor rather than in a cellar. First up for me was the Brasserie de la Senne tap of the week Taras Boulba, enjoyed with a spaghetti dish with ham and cheese, Tabasco, and Count Basie on the soundtrack. A second Boulba had me saying "Wow" out loud, then it was on to another tap, Lindemans Kriek, a blood-red cherry sensation. The menu lists, at my rough count, over 120 bottles beyond its 5 listed taps. A wonderful spot to visit, followed by gawking at the Manneken Pis across the street! Very highly recommended.

Beautiful and relaxing place full of interesting beers. Enjoy it
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 .
In my opinion, this is NOT a beer bar. This is merely a tourist trap. The place is very nice, clean etc ... but there is no quality of service whatsoever. The beer menu is not so rich... almost every bar in Brussels can offer the same. I may be a bit hard on them, but i was very disapointed when i went there .
Lovely cozy traditional pub by the Mannekin Pis. Very popular. Great selection of beers. Food was limited - we had the soapy cheese and tasteless salami which for some reason are popular beer snacks in Belgium.
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.
