Nice place with inside and outside tables, exotic (but pretty) decoration and nice prices. The waiters were great, being attentive and helpful (and that's uncommon here at Belgium, unfortunately). Great beers, mostly bottles. For a good talk (there's no WiFi) and a good round of...More

Well positioned for tourist watching due to the location of being well... right by the pissing boy (Manniken Pis). A good beer menu for sure, interesting decoration and a great spot to be either in or outside. Supposedly all the marionettes were used in various...More

Great selection of beers and good prices. We had a couple traditional Belgium beers. Westmalle, a stronger tasting beer, very good, and a lighter and sweeter beer called Tripel Karmeliet. They also have a nice selection cheeses and meats. We ordered the lasagna. Surprisingly it...More
