We did not time our visit so that we could see a puppet show but the bar is great. We made a couple of visits during our stay. It was quiet at lunchtime so easy to get served by the friendly staff.

We grabbed a few beers and the cheese and veggie plate while here. Didn’t catch a show. But it’s a great cute little bar. And a historic piece of Brussels. It’s a great place to grab a beer

The staff was slow and inefficient. Spent their time on the newly arrived beer-tasting group instead of taking our orders
