Just in the city centre. A lot of party inside and nice music too. The selection is only belgium beers. Reasonable value. A good option for take a beer if you are near the zone of Leidseplein or Museumplein.

Cozy bar, but the beer selection is bad. Only some very generic Belgian beers.

I love coming here. Old school rock is usually playing and there is simple honesty in the ambience. It isnít trying to be anything. It is a beer bar with a slightly worn look. You have to arrive early or book a table as it is always packed. I love the cheese and pate platters with hot bread. The beer selection is good. A good variety of Belgian beers. It is a Belgian beer bar so donít expect to see local beers.

Stopped by this beer bar while stumbling my back to my hotel after drinking some beer at much superior De Spuyt, 5 minute walk from De Spuyt. Basic tap selection with 10 lines or less that didnít have many Dutch beers. A medium size bottle selection (Iíd say about 70 to 100) with a clear focus on Belgian ales, nothing to please the beer tourist who wants to drink dutch beers in dutch land. Music was loud, crowd was very young and the party raged on. This seems almost like a dive bar for the younger crowd who can afford Belgian beers instead of cheap beers usually found in dive bars. That place made me feel old, I donít like that, even if Iím old.

Great little place to hide during Amsterdamís cold winter or sit/stand outside in the summer. Classic selection of Belgian beers with bottles specials per month and week. The kitchen is good and their Belgian fries are the best in the city. Reserve a table or else avoid on weekend nights unless you are there very early or late.

A nice Belgian beer cafe, a bit on the side, mostly for locals I suppose, though some tourists end up here as well. Prices are fairly decent, good for the tap stuff. The known Belgians are here and of course the trappists. Eight taps with one seasonal (summer/winter) and one monthly. Nothing special in the bottle section though. Good food, serving a lot of trappist cheese fair and dishes cooked with beer. Also, three specials of the day. If you go, go for the food. Itís good. Nice enough service, friendly, knowledgeable, fast even when busy. A bit small, but it contributes to the more rustic and local feeling thatís the main attraction. Nice enough, old rockíníroll music, but with a lot of people in a small place, it can get a bit loud.

Large but not so original selection. Some beers are served in an awful condition. Rude rude rude service.

Nice bar in relatively central Amsterdam. Has a pretty extensive list of draft and bottled beer, though not much of the selection is particularly rare or exciting. Worth checking out if youíre in Amsterdam for a while, but there are several nicer bars to check out before this one.

Belgium/Dutch-mix style bar focused on Belgian beers and younger going-out crowd. Kinda small and a very relaxed atmosphere. Liked the music, too. We were (very?) lucky to find a table on Saturday night and it was busy but no overcrowded at all. Staff seemed surprisingly knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. Selection almost exclusively the more well-known Belgian (and some Dutch) ales. Would have expected more rarities but frankly there was enough to choose from. Liked the offering of Arabier and Oerbier, for example. Also the Orval was presented with the last yeasty bit served in a separate shooter glass - havenít seen that level of detail before in a bar like this. Prices are reasonable, especially considering how close it is to Amsterdamís Leidseplein. Recommended!
