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.

Cool place to grab a beer after seeing the little peeing statue. There is no "bar" from what I can tell, just very snug tables. Not handicap accessible. Good beer menu, friendly staff, interesting decor. What more could you ask for! Only down side is...More

Nice place. Fair price. The Service outside is not great. One waitress that comes almost once per day

Disappointingly it was not on Monday 19th September. As it was closed no one to ask if this is normal . Try the many web pages about it .
