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.
The place was packed during our evening visit. Very nice interior, lots of details and decoration. On the other this bar had a very touristy feel to it which was understandable I guess. Selection is oriented mostly on Belgian classics, nothing too interesting for me. It wouldn’t hurt them to refresh a bottle list. Prices were OK, good service. Glad I’ve visited, but not so sure I’d revisit at least not for the beer.
Right in the centre of Brussels. Nice place and rather relaxing setting though in a touristy place it keeps up with some authenticity. Service is up to the task. Selection is fair but I expected a bit more considering its location. Bit of tourist prices but acceptable. Overall a good place even though it has been a while.
Nice bar with a solid well chosen beer selection. Not sensational, but almost everyone should find something new and/or exciting. The walls are fully packed with decoration and stuff. The food selection is rather limited, but nice nevertheless. Can be a bit crowded, but the prices seem fair.
Concurrida cervecería enfrente del Manneken, bonita decoración trato amable, buena selección de cervezas.

A magical quircky place that oozzes character, just across the street from Manneken Pis. The tap and bottle is amazingly classic Belgium. The service is excellent, prompt and professional. A must visit in Brussels.
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.
