I was so excited about coming here as I had read all the reviews on Trip Adviser. My friend and I went to find it to book a table, we were greeted by a lovely lady (short blonde hair) and she showed us round the inside. It looked just like the pictures, really quirky and fun.

I wondered in after seeing mannequin pis. All the seats were taken outside but the inside has a good feel to it. I wasn't sure what beer to get but the lady helped me choose, which was nice :)

..but beware that it does get busy and you may have to wait to get served. One American who wanted the waiter to explain what beers were on offer stomped off in disgust when the waiter said that he did not have the time .. the place was very busy. Anyhow, a great beer place.

Great place for quality beers. Friendly and with knowledgeable staff. Surprisingly uncrowded given that it's next to Manneken Pis.

Great beer selection in the heart of Brussels. Lovely to sit outside and watch all the tourists pass by.

Great looking bar in interesting spot. Large terrace outside to watch the tourists flocking to the statue but worth seeing inside for the interestingly decorated interior. Good selection of drinks, perfect for a relaxed more sophisticated travel through the Belgium Beer styles.

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.
