Owner description: Traditional Brussels' puppet theater - Typical cafe
Reviewed June 3, 2014

While spending a day with a friend who lives near Brussels, he took us down a narrow street to Toone. While we weren't there for a show, even taking in a delicious beer in this place was quite memorable. They have a nice list of offerings for beverages, and being here you certainly feel as though you've stepped into another time and place. Walking out through the back door after our drink, we entered another alleyway lit with twinkle lights and the moon. It seriously felt like a tavern from a fairy tale!

You really have to search to find this spot. Tucked away in a little alley is the theatre and cafe/pub. We missed the evening marionette show but stopped for a drink. Wonderful atmosphere and prices were reasonable. Service was indifferent but the ambience more than made up for it. Hope to make it for the show upon or return.

Friends took us here. We thought we were going for a beer - which we were, but surrounded by puppets and the old puppet theatre. This has now moved upstairs, and has a daily programme.

Not only can you have a good beer in this historic Estaminet, but you can also actually watch a puppetshow! I went to see Macbeth in French. My French isn't wonderful, but that did not matter in the least. The atmosphere is great, the puppet show was great and I would love to go back again.
