Nice place outside where "Manneken Pis" is, but not very touristy. Very good food, excellent selection of beers. The waiter was a bit distracted, but came up with good recommendations.

We had a few beers and some cheese that the waiter recommended. He was witty and knowledgeable, but a little distracted. They have a huge selection of beers, and a few small dishes. There is also a very nice place to sit outside but it's...More

At 200m from Brussels Grand Place, make a stop at the Poechenellekelder (the "Marionette cellar") to taste one (at ta time) so famous Belgian beer :-) Nice terrace but when the weather is typical Belgian (i.e grey and raining) just go inside ... it's magical...More

Typical café/pub from Brussels. Very good vibes and the place for laughter, enjoying friends, romantic confessions or a good talk around a nice drink in a historical 'peoplish' atmosphere. Come here with confidence and enjoy.

Stopped for a beer late one afternoon on the way to my hotel. Sat outside directly across from the mannered pis. Enjoyable place to watch tourists. Left after one beer because I could not get the attention of the waiter.

Located within feet of Mannekin Pis. Lucky choice. Limited number of draft beer but very large number of bottled, primarily Belgium beers. In spite of earlier review, they did take bank card for payment. Staff was helpful in renegotiating beer selection.

The waiters were really pushy and unfriendly, they didn't even wait for us to finish ordering before going away. Food was nothing special and space inside was tight.
