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.

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. Good is good and highly satisfying. 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.
Very nice cafè in front of Manneken Pis. Interiors and decoration are just amazing, if you like the style. Very interesting beer selection. Not a lot of rarities but many well-known craft belgian beers. Absolutely a must go if you’re in the area.
Corner pub in front of the Manneken Pis. Good outdoor patio for watching people doing selfies at the fountain. Inside it has a lovely atmosphere with all kind of weird stuff displayed. Beer list really good. Service could be more personal but its quite a touristy place because of its location.
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.
Quirky spot with a bunch of weird mannequins and puppets on the wall, ceilings covered with stuff too. Service was solid, prompt and friendly. Selection was great, with rotating special bottles, although they were out of m first three selections. If you end up near Mannekin Pis, worth a stop.
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!
