In the heart of the city center it is a great option to try Belgian beers and to feel the past! Very charming place, as if centuries didn't pass! The choice of beers is great. If your accommodation is in the city center you should...More

I chose this particular place to sit cause it was very convenient right next to the manekken pis. But it definetely was not the kind of place you expect to find next to a touristic attraction. High quality interior, excellent service ( credits to the...More

Lovely open air cafe directly across from the famous little statue. Menu has hundreds of beers to choose from separated by category: Ambers, blonds, browns, etc and a nice selection of lambic (fruit-based) beers--absolutely delicious!

This nice place is just near the Manneken-Pis, and all that part of the town is full of vibes and the atmosphere is made for chilling. The inside of the pub is really typical and the beers they sell are something special!
