“Maybe not suitable for older people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

I went, I loved the show, I highly recommend it. But it's good to know that the benches don't have backs to them, so anyone a bit older (or significantly overweight) or with back problems should be aware. I went with my mother, and she left during the intermission because her lower back hurt. She wasn't the only one; the theater lost a noticeable amount of its audience during that one intermission. Which is too bad really, because the show was tremendous.

“Performed in Bruxellois, but still a great experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

The owner/host and the performers were fantastic, the show was great (even though we understood little of the language!). What made it was the acting - hilarious!

The place is tucked away in a little alley off the famous Rue des Bouchers. There's a bar to have a quiet drink before the show and during the intermission they open a little museum filled with all the old puppets and props from previous shows - some very old - and the owner himself serves drinks behind a mini bar and chats with the audience.

Great if you want something you're unlikely to experience anywhere else!

“Nice bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

This bar is well hidden in a tiny street that is barely visible, but if you find it you will not regret. Beautiful place.

“Great atmosphere and excellent beer!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

Tucked away in an alley we were taken to Toone by a friend who lives locally. We didn't see a performance which was a pity, but the atmosphere was great. Just a word of warning for any disabled or elderly persons, the toilets are un some very step steps, gents on the first and ladies up another flight. The poor old lady in front of me was almost on her hands and knees trying to get there!
