This place is MUST. An excellent place with a friendly service. A good selection of Dutch beers. If you´re a enthusiast of beer you can´t miss this place. Worth visiting. (29.6.2005)
Still the same opinion (14.5.2013).

Café de Arendnest
Great location on the banks of the Herengracht canal in Amsterdam. Excellent vibe and feel. Reasonably quiet at 4.30pm on a Saturday arvo but filled up quickly. (100% locals – no tourist pests!!). Very classy fit-out with plenty of wood panelling and historic beer posters. Awesome bottle list (~150) with a heavy emphasis on local beers, including some vintage ales (bravo). 15 taps ranging from e2.0 to e3.40 in price. Do yourself a favour next time on Amsterdam…given the hookers a miss and come to Arendnest! Easily a highlight amongst a 20+ bar visit across Benelux in late 2006.

A very nice place to sample Dutch specialties (had the best Dutch beers ever in there). Visited 2 times (Dec 27 and 28th) between 16 and 18, and there were not too many people then, so the smoke was bearable. They could open earlier than 16, and the toilet facilities are very limited (prepare to queue when crowded). Overall a definite place to visit the Dutch beer culture (they also sell a book [in Dutch] about that for 20 euros). [Update 10/2008: No more smoke, very cozy and pleasant now :). Also noticed the relaxing background music.]

Quiet and friendly place, with staff that know their beers. The concept works very well, and I recommend this if you ever visit Amsterdam. Easy to get to from the Central Station, and convenient if you are going to the Bierkönig, too.

Nice, quiet bar/café serving exclusively Dutch beer, with a wide selection of specialities, and some beers brewed specially for the pub. Good music, nice, quiet feel. Excellent service from the very knowledgeable and helpful barman (Robin). An excellent place to relax with a few beers, and a definite must-visit in Amsterdam.

Excellent place. Visited with Pieter and I sampled 9 rare beers, including their last bottle of the famous Chocolate beer. Only two were his so I was quite "full" when leaving. Very friendly barkeep named Mauritz. They have 15 taps, six of which rotate. They also have an enormous amount of bottles. Really great place. Recommend highly.

’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.

Probably my favorite bar in Amsterdam. Not exactly a young crowd, but the menu makes up for it – really specializes in Dutch stuff. Tons on tap. Big whisky selection, too. Relaxed pub atmosphere.

The Barman is a bit reserved until he has seen you a few times. I met the owner and his wife, young and hard workers. The Barman & Owner were quite knowledgeable and took me on a very nice tour of Dutch beers. They also know their Genevers quite well and I’ve developed a taste for Genever thanks to them. Great place for a "Kopstoot" and some tasty bar snacks
