Cozy and atmospheric place that serves only Dutch beers. They’ll do 4-5 ounce pours of three beers if you like. Service was friendly and quick when we visited. Pretty large bottle list. Nice place.

’t Arendsnest is possibly one of the best beer bars I’ve visited - everything is high class, everything is as it should be. The walk from the Red Light District is not too far, and after you make it once you’ll have no trouble the next time. From the outside this place is not immediately noticed (it’s not hidden, just has a small sign), otherwise looking exactly the same as the buildings nextdoor. Very nice bottle list, exclusively Dutch. Across the canal from it is one of the better coffee shops in the city, Amnesia, not full of the riffraff seen in the RLD. Seems the Dutch like their beer fairly sweet. To me I think they should balance the sweetness some, but then again I do appreciate the new, interesting and hybrid styles that the Dutch brewers seems to create. Had a Dutch russian imperial stout here that was fairly unique, and a quad the night before that was amazing - smelled and tasted like it was aged in merlot oak barrels. Also the SNAB Pale Ale is a good US-like use of hops. Overall, this bar has a LOT to offer the beer traveler, the focus on Dutch beer is the draw. I can’t wait to go back, as this bar was one of the highlights of my European trip in 2006.

Visited September 2012.

The place is small and somewhat cramped but it’s got a nice feel to it where everyone doesn’t seem to mind sitting elbow to elbow. The tap list is extensive with mostly Dutch beers on it and a few others mixed in (like La Trappe). They had tons of de Molen available too in the bottle. We sat by the window and ordered a few rounds while enjoying the view of the street and the canal. Taps were pricey but given the selection I can’t complain too much. Would definitely stop in again if I ever had the interest in returning to Amsterdam.

Very nice place with all 30 of the taps being Dutch brewed beers. Tons of bottles, seem to focus a lot on De Molen. Pretty decent prices, friendly staff, and a very nice atmosphere. A must do in Amsterdam.

I was going to Amsterdam for a conference at the beginning of April so we decided to extend the trip and make a short holiday of it. We stayed in the excellent Hotel Singel (on the Singel canal, one of the innermost rings) and I was thrilled to find that ‘t Arendsnest was our “local”, just minutes away on Herengracht, the next canal along. It became just that – our local for the visit, and we became regulars. The staff are extremely knowledgeable and very friendly and the real locals were friendly too, as were the more itinerant customers. We weren’t surprised when we bumped into Ken with a couple of his colleagues, as we knew he was working in Amsterdam, but one evening we also found ourselves sitting next to Claus from Sogaard’s brewery in Aarhus, whom we’d met before, and – another day - Paul and Sandra, who we know from Belgian beer gatherings. So it’s obviously the place to be! The reason is clear – the bar is situated centrally, but in a quieter area of the centre by a lovely canal, and it serves only Dutch beers, all carefully chosen so there’s no Heineken or whatever else is the Dutch equivalent of Budweiser and Miller Light. There are 30 beers on tap at any one time, a full selection of De Molen beers (some on tap, most in bottle) and a range of other bottled beers. All this choice was a bit daunting at first but I soon found a favourite for when I couldn’t make a new choice – Mikkie’s beer, a very nice IPA brewed to celebrate the birth of the owner’s daughter. The bar itself isn’t large but it’s comfortable and stylish in a traditional sort of way, with a few polished wood tables as well as seats at the bar. We always found somewhere to sit, even at busy times. Food is limited to snacks but the cheese is to be recommended. It comes from a local shop and is also Dutch. The cheese with ginger rates amongst some of the best cheeses I’ve ever tasted. Incidentally, the delightful Thomas, one of the barmen, was up for a national award whilst we were there – I hope he wins. He deserves it! Update: Thomas came a close 2nd; Mikkie’s beer no longer available. Nothing new to say except that we were given the wrong bill yet again – a minor gripe but a common issue last time too. (Last visited 29/9/13).

Love it. Fantastic location overlooking the canal in a quiet area moments away from the bustle of central Dam. On a lazy and warm afternoon...perfect. The local Dutch brews are what we came for and what a fine selection indeed! Add to that the wonderfully inviting staff and friendly regulars and it feels like a second home. Every city should have a pub like this.

Theydon_Bois  (1005) Tourist Town (West), England | September 29, 2014
Visited on Thursday evening, 25/09/14 around 8.30pm. The place was fair buzzing but Kenny and I bagged the last small table for two. Canalside view, up a gentle staircase, Arendsnest is narrow and moderate in length, decorated in wood and probably seating 30/35 people at a max. I imagine you’d seat another 20 or so on the canalside terrace. The service was friendly but a little too relaxed at times causing a lengthy wait (by UK standards) to get some beer. Beer is all from the Netherlands, 25-30 on tap and 100 or so bottles. One nice feature here is that they sell 15cl pours as well as larger ones, so ticker friendly. The selection was varied, beers from a good 15 or so breweries and wide ranging styles on tap. Food is in the form of cheese, cold meats and nuts, but a good selection in each category (5 to 10 to choose from). In all a nice atmospheric venue with a solid tap and bottle list.

Great bar. The beer selection is without peer in Amsterdam, and most of this selection is on draft. The bar itself is beautiful, tastefully decorated, located right on a canal, plenty of hardwood - stunning. Prices are fair. My only complaints are that 1) we waited about 10-15 minutes to get the cheese plate we ordered, by which time my two companions and I were basically done with our beers; and 2) even after requesting our bill we still had to go to the bar to pay. (Maybe the waiter would have brought it, but after 10 minutes we decided to take action.) These shortcomings are somewhat ubiquitous in Amsterdam, though, so ’t Arendsnest really isn’t too different in this regard. Bottom line: visit here. The beer is good and the setting is great.

Fin  (941) Merton, Oxfordshire, England, England | June 22, 2009| Updated October 4, 2011
This was a really excellent bar and in a lovely canalside location. Served nothing other than Dutch beers with over thirty of these on tap at any one time. Barman was very knowledgeable and extremely helpful. I would highly recommend this place if in Amsterdam I went back 2-3 three times. Been again 29 & 30th Sept’ 2011, I love this place, the service is just great, selection superb and everything about it is top notch. Superb bar.

This is tucked neatly just off a canal in a mostly residential area just blocks from the Centraal Station. Somewhat tight inside but the service is pleasant and efficient. There is a nice selection of 30 Dutch drafts and a large bottle selection.
