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!

The ambience of this place is just out of the world. Feels like you have been transported centuries back - very well decorated interiors, wide selection of Belgian beers and a short but nice tapas food option makes this place a must visit! Best part...More

I have been in Brussels six times by now, but have never made it into the bar. Inside its very comfortable, the staff knows what they are doing and the beer is great. The food, mostly bread with cheese and sausage or ham looks great....More
