From the outside I expected more, it was a pity to discover that this bar was ordinary and the service so shameful!

Very small but can make a nice alternative every now and then to the top bars like Wildeman and Arendsnest. Nice but more limited beer selection.

Nice but small place, and often too crowded. There’s few taps and some bottles available. For beer enthustic selection can be a bit small.

Small place, only a few tables and some baarstools. Atmosphere is very relaxed, Nice reggae-like music. Decent beer selection, nothing special but a good choice. Bench outside.

The Belgique is nice if you are there when it is not crowded. Then it is a cute, cozy and stylish hole-in-the-wall place with a lovingly assembled collection of staples and a few changing beers that are also always quality stuff. The staff do their best even at times when the place is packed up to the ceiling. Sometimes you can catch the odd live music event there and wonder how space can be so warped to fit a band and an audience into this place at the same time.

Judged as a small bar 50 metres off Dam Square this place is remarkable. Roomy and relaxing it ain’t never going to be, nor can it reasonably keep / keep reasonably more than 30-40 beers.

Borresteijn  (181) Amsterdam, Netherlands | September 4, 2008
Very small café with a nice old Amsterdam-style interior. With some luck you might get a seat, but don’t count on it. Outside underneath the windows are 2 benches, but the only view is a painted wall and tourists. Nevertheless a nice bar, the only one as far as I know that is allowed to have IJ Vlo on draught, which is imo a big plus.

Small place, cosy atmosphere, rather ordinary Belgian beers. Lots of bottles and beer banners all over the place. I was there around 9 p.m. and inside was deadly hot and sultry, few tables outside were all occupied. Had five new beers here.

3fourths  (1270) Boulder, Colorado | June 4, 2008| Updated April 20, 2013
Small and cramped but go in the early to mid-afternoon and you’ll find space. Walk by at night and expect a large crowd spilling out into the street. Beer selection is decent enough, ’t Ij Vlo on tap plus a few other good bottled Dutch beers. I was able to find a few new things and I’ve been to a lot of bars across the Netherlands. I struggle more in Belgium! Recommended while trekking around Amsterdam during the day.

One of the few small cramped bar experiences that I enjoyed. However, it was too hot inside (in February), so I sat outside and had my nose assaulted by lots of pungent weed instead. Fairly competent beer list, seemed like more than 30, and friendly service.
