Went i the square to buy something and took notice that I am in front of the Brussels Opera House. Took some amazing photos and left with a good impression of the place.

I love this place, and every time I'm in Brussels I drop in for a few beers. I particularly recommend the Kwak. Bit difficult to find on your first visit, but just ask one of the waiters in the nearby restaurants, they all know it.

this was real fun. A great experience. Very different. the history of the theatre is very unique. I don`t think that there are too many theatre like this that still exist.

Really good pub especially if you are a beer aficionado like me and as its a real puppet theatre the puppets and the décor inside makes it a unique place to visit. I recommend the Kwak or a speciality fruit beer. It is good value for money and as its hidden down an alleyway it doesn't get overrun by tourists,... More

It used to be a marionette theatre , great outside terrace and very friendly staff. If you are in Brussels near the Grand Place and you are searching for a great calm and authentic pub, far from all the tourists ,then it is the place to go to.

This is a really nice cafe and at the same time is a marionette theater. First of all, it is never crowded which is probably because of its location down an alley just acros the street from the Grand Place.

We saw The Three Musketeers at the Toone theatre and loved it. Tickets were 12 Euros but well worth it. The performance was funny and a great way to spend an evening in Brussels. Very much recommended.

Every time I come to Brussels I always have to visit Toone's, the decor inside is quite unique with the puppets, but I must admit that I prefer the outdoor seating area as it's so pleasant in the summer with all the greenery. It's almost hidden away in the middle of a busy city centre. Just make sure you get... More

The nicest thing about this place, besides the atmosphere, is that they serve beers often not found in bars in Brussels anymore - alway in the correct glass, of course! I go for the Affligem, highly recommended (although not in summer - too heavy).
