Visited the Toone last thursday after reading reviews about it....We were very dissapointed...It was very quiet with no atmosphere and the bar staff seemed totally disinterested,leaving customers unserved while standing outside smoking...not the cleanest place we visited..

I love the Toone! Marionettes performing different plays and shows in French - it's truely fascinating, even if, like me, you don't speak French! This was my second visit to the Toone and I enjoyed it as much as the first. As well as enjoying the Toone, there's a great bar downstairs where you can enjoy a Belgian beer before the show. The staff are very friendly and helpful in the bar, and the Toone performers are friendly too - I ended up chatting to them after the show in the bar. A brilliant night all round!

Very cool experience, even though we didn't understand a word. It was hard to follow the plot, but the theatrics of it were enchanting and we were too mesmerized by the skill of the puppeteers to care. Fantastic experience, highly recommended for those who have been to a marionette performance before.

very typical puppet theatre. Worth while to see how it is operated but can only be appreciated if you understand the brussels' dialect
