Poechenellekelder is without a shadow of a doubt one of my favourite taverns to visit on any holiday I take to Brussels as not only do they have a fantastic beer range but the interior is well worth a visit in its own right. The...More

If you like Belgium Beers then this is a must visit. The bar has plenty of character to go along with its huge array of beers on offer. Service can sometimes be a bit slow, but a visit to this bar should not be rushed.

The place is very nice but the staff was not friendly at all. They told us "we are famous for the beers not for the food" we ask for one of these and they didn't have it.

Don't like puppets, find them very scary, however we were hungry so we went in. The food was fine, we had pasta and beer. It was chocker but we got served ok. Found the puppets a bit off putting.

Went to this bar based on trip advisor and it does not disappoint. There was a great atmosphere and decor, overlooked by quaint marionettes and kitsch decoration. The staff were helpful in recommending beers for us from the wide selection. We had a generously sized...More

It was very busy but we didn’t have to wait long. The waitress was quick and on the ball even though they were flat out. It’s a great place after sightseeing to grab a snack like saucisson and cheese washed down with a beer. They...More
