    A new favourite place in Brussels!
    Extensive local beer menu and great hearty meals - the team is absolutely fantastic, looked after us well. They are very knowledgeable and attentive. We had a great time having dinner and sampling local beers. The lasagne is a new favourite.

    Great pub!
    We visited this pub after an afternoon of walking. Despite beu g right across from mannekin pis, it was quiet and relaxing. Big Trees gave us shade. The slanted patio of cobbles added ti character. My cycling enthusiast loved that the Tour de France passed by here in 2019. Had a delicious and generous charcuterie and strong beet! Yum!!!

    Essential must-see place in Brussels
    This is essential on your visit to Brussels. What an amazing unique place. Full of puppets hanging from the ceiling and over the walls. The place is not too big so either book or be prepared to queue. We only had drinks, my only criticism was that there was only one member of staff on and god bless him he worked bloody hard but it meant that service was quite slow.

    Amazing vibe, location, and service!
    We had a great experience at this spot! The service was outstanding. The lovely seating area outside has views of MannekenPis. There is a really eccentric and cool interior of the bar. The snacks were nice too. The beer was sublime and the vibe was truly special!

    Great Place to Enjoy a Brussels Beer Experience
    This is an incredibly busy bar just up from the Mannekin Pis. I loved it! We were greeted by a really friendly bar tender who found us a table and then gave us just the right amount of time to choose our drinks. As you maybe aware, most Brussels bars have a huge range of both bottled and draught beers and yet our drinks were with us in no time at all (how do they do that?) It was also good value considering the location. We were lucky to get a seat but others arriving didn't seem to be waiting long. In my opinion, this is well worth a visit

    "Must place" for beer in Brussels
    Unique beer garden just at Manneken Pis. A lot of sorts of beer, even such unique once like Cantillon Gueze. And let the waiter pour the beer into the glass.... remarkable experience :). "Must place" for beer in Brussels

We were seated by a waiter upstairs, he took our order and we noticed it was very cold, we were near an open window. A couple nearby asked if they could close it and he said no, they have to keep the oxygen levels up. I kid you not.
I'm sure he was roasting mind you as he was run off his feet. There was a constant stream of people arriving, and a matching stream leaving, I imagine this was because the waiter had time to seat each new customer, get their drink, then seat the next new customer and so on. Hence you could only get one drink! We wanted a second round but gave up waiting.
Shame, fairly pretty place but dreadfully understaffed.

Understaffed place with mediocre food.
I called the place earlier on the day to make a reservation for dinner and I was told it wasn’t necessary. We arrived closer to 7 pm only to be told the outdoor area had been shut due to staff shortage and had to wait for a table inside.

Quirky interior with an extensive beer selection but that was it.

We had a wonderful time! The place is very cosy and the personnel is cheerful and kind. We tried the charcuterie boards - both cheese and meat - and some local beers and we were pleasantly satisfied by both the food and the beers. It is a youthful and lively place and although the food selection is limited (it is a beer bar after all) we loved everything about it! The price is reasonable considering its central position - right in front of the Manneken Pis, just behind the Grote Markt. Overall great!

Shortly after we arrived in Brussels and freshened up at our hotel, we went walking through the Grand Place and by the Manneken Pis when we spotted this quaint pub with colorful bicycles on the building and an outdoor patio. We ordered our first Belgian beers...took a couple of tries to find brands that suited our taste and went with our Pate du Campagne and Jambon & Fromage plates. Service was pretty good, despite being short-staffed. We heard that this establishment has an historical collection of local Brusselsiana and breweriana and more. We found it quite interesting to see the historical memorabilia.

We've been coming here for over seven years now and the service has always been wonderful. However, this evening I would say it was not only rude but aggressive. I admit that on arrival we didn't notice the sign saying wait at the entrance. In our defence for the previous two days it was either not there or not enforced. The greeter then asked spoke to me in French. I speak some french, but he had a mask on and I couldn't hear him. He then asked very loudly " well what language? french, English, German?" He then marched us back to the entrance before allocating us a table. He was equally unpleasant and aggressive as we paid our bill. I would emphasise that the table service was as efficient and pleasant as ever. - it was just this one awful man. Hoping he doesn't last long as this bar is a real favourite.

A great beer list and very fun atmosphere. If you are wondering what to order on the menu, try the lasagna, it is the best I have ever eaten and the 2nd best meal I had in 10 days vacation. The furnishings kept you looking around and smiling, staff was busy but very efficient and knew how to pour each beer and did this for you. Don't miss this Brussels gem!!
