Get the sampler to start, then pick pints of your favorites. About 50 to choose from, all Belgium beers, all delicious. I was there during the day and was the only one in the bar and it was wonderful. Very informative place to visit. If you are in Amsterdam, you must add this to your list of places to visit.

Middle sized place with large bar, very serene and full of natural light. Several tap beers and lots of spirits. Besides De Wildeman, this is the best beer place in Amsterdam. Cosy atmosfere, nice natural enviroment, friendly and knowledgeable waiter. Numerous beer commercials (more banners and decorations) on the walls, but I don’t’ get how the statue of wooden Apache fits in under the sign Trappisten Bieren.

skortila  (169) Baarn, Netherlands | September 11, 2007
Excellent place in the centre of Amsterdam, located at walking distance of the Central Station. It has a pure dutch selection on tap and bottle. They also have old bottles (la trappe quadrupel, hertog jan grand prestige) aged for about 4-5 years. Really worth a try. The place itself has a classy ambience. Music is kept at a low volume so you can still hear each other. Now, dutch beers should improve more and more...

Rastacouere  (664) Montreal, Quebec | September 2, 2007| Updated September 10, 2007
One of my favourite beer bars in the world, this is a winning formula for anyone who is not dutch. Marvellous draught list including 7 of the 30 or so Dutch beers I’d put on my must-try list. Classy place with less smokers than most. Just out of the very centre of Amsterdam, so it seems it may get a bit less packed. To give you an idea of the situation, I’m in Amsterdam for a week, I was at the Wildeman and Arendsnest yesterday. I won’t go back to the Wildenman, but I’ll go back to Arendsnest... everyday. Friendly, efficient, passionate even staff. Probably more dutch brews than the Bierkoning store. Soft jazz and old rock music kept at low volume. Remarkable spot that reached expectations, but how could it not?

A must visit when in Amsterdam, justoutside the busy centre. Often quiet but steady, it offers an unprecedented number of Dutch beers on draft (at least 15 I think) and around 150 in bottle. The staff are very very knowledgeable and will always engage you in conversationn regarding the beers. Although food is limited, the small snacks are perfect to keep on going. Even the most ardent beer hunter will be challenged by the beer list. The biggest compliment to any bar/pub is that it will be revisited as soon as possible and I can’t wait to visit again.

Hunsell brought me he and I am grateful for that. The menu is intimidating because I know very little about Dutch beers. Interior is clean and nearly empty on a Thursday night. Service knows beer. Quiet and good for talking. I assume they allow smoking but there was no smoke in the air this evening. The place to go for Dutch beer. I am giving a high rating for selection because they don’t have a huge number of beers but lots of a things a person in North America will not be able to find at home or easily anywhere else.

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.

sayravai  (103) Helsinki, Finland | December 31, 2006| Updated December 28, 2009
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.]
