Great spot

Had the chance to stop in here for a quick beer - which turned into dinner and 4 or 5 more beers. Great waiter who kept bringing me great beers.

There’s no profound reason why this should be the best bar in Brussels, there may even be better, it just happens through a series of experiences to be my favourite and one to which I always return. Inside it is cosy, outside you can watch the stream of fools who pay homage to a statue of a peeing child. Either... More

Fantastic selection of beers and wonderful location. Sitting outside watching all the people go past was a great way to spend the afternoon.

So many people reviewed it . We happened to be in the area , we stopped in for a few brews . I had one called La Guillotine (2) my husband had Guldenber. We ordered a plate with goat cheese & salami it came with bread & pickles . Perfect pairing . Cozy & cute place inside .

There is a great feeling to sit outside watching a ton of tourists looking a little boy peeing (yes that statue), but no really this is a super old bar right downtown and has a GREAT beer selection and GREAT people watching.

A quirky place, strangely decorated, but has great athmosphere and very professional and quick service. Came there twice on a three day trip to Brussels and will come again if in Brussels.

This place was just too good. We had gone to see Mannequin Pis statue and this bar was situated right behind it. We were a group of 7 friends just bar hoping, but there was something about this place and we were here for atleast 4 hours. Beer selection was really nice and so was the service. The place was...

Just across from the le Mannequin Pis statue, this pub has an excellent selection of Belgium beers including several Gueuzes. The food selection is minimal but it's a beer place!

This pub had the nicest feel about it. Situated right on the corner opposite Manneken Pis it was interesting to sit outside and watch tourist groups come by, discuss and take pictures. Inside the pub is an interesting and inviting atmosphere. The walls & ceiling are decorated with plenty of old instruments, puppets and so on. The beer list was... More
