This place, just feet from the Mannekin Pis, is not to be missed. Classic Brussels beer bar and a Beer Advocate must see. Here is the breakdown of my visit on 6 28 09:
Atmoshphere: Could not be improved. Mannekin Pis costumes of the past, Belgian beer signage, oversized bottles of beer from around the world (with an emphasis on Belgians), great tables with a place marker near most seats with prior benefactors listed, great little metal winding staircase to say nothing of the incredible outdoor seating for about 80 again just opposite the Mannekin Pis. Not only it is a BA must see but it is not easy to miss, so close to a tourist stop like the Mannekin Pis.
Quality: Cannot be improved where I can see with about 400 beer bottles served in appropriate glassware in the highest class way.
Service: Excellent introduction to beer provided by our mutilingual waiter who was patient and right on in his assessment of their available beers. Much of what he had to say was already understood by me but it was very nice of his to provide the overview and I thought to myself if I had not known anything about beer this would be the ideal introduction. Bravo!
Selection: As stated, 400 bottles and (possibly..I did not check) a few taps with a concentration on Belgians. Need I say more?
Food: Did not attempt. I am not even sure that they offer food. I was so entranced by the beer there.
Value: Just fine. My wife and I each had a beer and it was something like $10 USD.
Notes: Special thanks to BA (again) for being able to know about this place and look for it. You came through again!

Forget Manneke Piss... you can see him when you make your way to this café. The selection here is great and you should definitely stay for a brew or two. The atmosphere is the reason to go here. Having been multiple times I believe the winter or damp cold days are the best. The place is generally quite packed and has a good combination of locals and tourist as clientele.

Happened upon this bar while wondering around the Grand Place. It is directly adjacent to the Mannequin Pis, so sitting outside you are basically watching throngs of tourists line up to photograph themselves. Even with that, it is still a great location. Service wasn't great, but it seemed to be just two guys taking care of the entire patio area, so the effort was there, just perhaps could have used more staffing. I'd happily go back.
