We stopped here for a drink after visiting the Mannekin Pis nearby. The bar has a great terrace. Service was good, and prices were reasonable compared to other bars in the city. The interior decor looked amazing.

They take their beer seriously here, and why shouldn't they. It's part pub, part bric-a-brac museum, part curiosities. It has a bit of everything here. Our server was very well informed about the beers and tended to our needs very professionally. All drinks provided with...More
