It was a hot Friday afternoon when we visited. Supposed to have stopped for a quick beer but they have such an amazing selection we stopped for three until early evening. Opposite the manikin pis. Seated outside. Great service good value and relaxing. A saxophone player was allowed to entertain us. The inside (it was too hot to be in)... More

We sat outside at this one. It was a great night outside. The service was typically slow, but the beers were plentiful. We had a cheese tray which was good. There was a meat on top looked and tasted like raw bacon. I would also say this is a good people watching place as it is right next to the... More

Very nice belgian pub with a history and really huge selection of almost all belgian beers. You can choose not only by colour or make, but also by alcohol content, which is very helpful. I would give 5 star review, but we hadn't good experience with waiter who was a bit cold to us.

Mannequins hanging as decor , the most amazing eclectic mix of objects on the walls & ceiling. It's a feast for the eyes taking it all in. It takes ages going to the loo as there's so much to see on the way!Easy popular jazz playing, very comfortable & relaxing atmosphere. Catering mainly for beer lovers with many, many beers... More

This place could be a tourist trap as it is located in front of to the Manneken Pis (the little boy fountain sculpture that is the symbol of Brussels). However this is one of the best bar in Brussels if you like beers and the headquarter of one of the oldest beer guilds (kind of beer drinker union) Indeed they... More

My wife and I visited this pub a couple of times over our weekend trip. The location is really fun since it is located right next to the famous Mannekin Pis (which makes for excellent people watching). All of the servers were extremely knowledgable of the beers, and servers seemed to take pride in their beer knowledge. Every beer recommendation... More

We enjoyed a few beers here and there is a great selection! The inside of this place is unusual and really quirky! We loved it! The waitress was very friendly and recommended beers to try as well. Located just opposite mannekin pis but prices are reasonable! A place you should definitely try and visit when in Brussels!
