Visited in March 2011 for a quick late snifter and ended up staying a couple of hours, mainly due to getting chatting with the friendly landlady and some locals. Despite the location it didnít seem a tourist trap, at least at the fairly late hour(s) we were there. Mostly Belgian beers with a decent range of lambics but nothing Iíd not had before so was happy to stick to the Chouffe Houblon Dobbelen.

Pretty much all Belgians. Nice enough place. Very busy on a Saturday night though staff efficient at the bar and friendly.

A strange place. Downtown Amsterdam close to the gay bars and also to the main train station. Medium side (by Amsterdam standard), sits about 50. Inside is clean, wood and more wood. Beer menu is Belgian only. A few taps and many bottles, but nothing the experienced beer-geek hasnít seen many times before. The one thing that stands out in their beer list are the lambics, not because they are unusual but because there is surprisingly very few lambics in Amsterdam bars. Het Elfde Gebod has many good classic lambics. Another thing unusual about this place was the crowd. Granted Iíve only been there once so it is a small sample to get a good feeling of the place, but when I visited the pub the customers were older folks and the place had none of the Amsterdam crazy vibe I love so much. Not a place I would recommend.

Nice beer cafť in the northern outskirts of the red light district. Friendly and efficient service, even when the bar was quite crowded on my late evening visit. Mixed clientele with both tourists, students and locals. Friendly and laid back atmosphere. Beer selection isnít spectacular, but actually quite well mixed, with main focus on Belgian beers. Possibly not a must, but definitely worth a visit if youíre passing by.

Het Elfde Gebod was the bar that really opened my eyes to Belgian beer some years ago. Nice brown cafť close to the central station.

We called in to Het Elfde Gebod for a quick nightcap on 31 March and ended up staying rather longer than planned. Itís a cosy and stylish brown bar with polished wood tables, soft lighting and the characteristic carpets found all over the Netherlands and used as table cloths, wall hangings and lampshades, but not often as carpets. The choice of beer wasnít huge but there were a few to choose from and I was happy with the Chouffe Houblon Dobbelen IPA tripel. The barmaid / owner was delightful Ė attentive and friendly in a professional way and we whiled away a couple of very pleasant hours chewing the fat with Babak-o-doestan, a local musician who originally hails from Iran and made his home in Amsterdam some twenty or so years ago.

My wife and I stumbled across this place early one morning while killing time in Amsterdam on a layover. We decided to try it out on our return leg, as weíd be there in the evening. The owner is a lovely woman, and the clientele were very friendly. We found it to be a wonderful place to people watch. Not a place for noisy Americans and cash only, although the bar across the street will act as an ATM for you in a pinch.

Even though there are now laws that ban smoking in cafes and restaurants the people here think itís necesarry to keep making the life of other people horrible. Completely respectless, and esp in a beerplace where good smell and taste are important.

Typical Amsterdam style bruin cafť, lots of wood, warm interior indeed, ligths are dim. Prices are by far the highest of all beer bars in Amsterdam and they have the smallest selection of them all. They do have some harder to get by Lambic beers, so if youíre into those beers, this is your place. Friendly owners, both obvious BourgondiŽrs (owner comes in and pours himself 3 flutes of Leffe from the tap in 5 minutes).
