A real authentic bar just by the mannekin pis, sit outside and watch the masses of tourists jostle for that perfect picture of the little man, beer is good, service is polite and the nibbles are complementary, I keep coming back A must visit for a traveller whilst in Brussels.

Great selection of beer and cheese. Had the blonde and the dark Chimay with some Chimay cheese. Delicious beer and cheese. Nice location right next to Manneken Pis. The staff is serviceminded and fast.

Totally tourist location, but go for the cheese selections (especially the Leffe cheese). So good! Interesting decor inside. Be warned: do not go inside if you are puppet-phobic. :)

We visited this place on Saturday morning. Took pasta and were impressed with a portion size for such money. I doubt that you can find something cheaper close to city center. Definitely recommend!)

Great place to sit and sup one of the many beers (must be 100+) whilst watching the fellow tourists at the mannekin pis (Belgium boy). Helpful bar staff guide you through the menu.

We had read reviews of this bar - and it was on the itinerary for our short stay in Brussels. This was one of our favourite bars. Just opposite the Mannekin Du Pis - we stopped on our first afternoon and sampled some of the great Belgium beers on offer. The seating outside was shaded and offered a great rest... More

Cool Place with funky puppet decor - perfect for a drink near the famous pisser. Too bad they don't have air conditioning.

Right opposite the Mannekin Pis this is a great place to stop for a drink. The unusual interior decorated with puppets adds to the atmosphere, the staff were slightly slow to begin with but we didn't mind as we were taking in the unusual decoration! Tried our first Kwak here great beer choice!

We went to this bar because its right next to Manneken Pis and we wanted to people watch. As it happened we had to go inside as it started to rain but it was well worth it a look inside. The décor is amazing but if you don't like puppets then this place is not for you. Again, the menu... More
