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.

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.

Nice, a bit too dark place with mainly wooden interior and lots of old belgian beer banners. Mainly Belgian beers, but pretty common selection. Been here two days in a row, and both times was difficult to find a place to sit. The service was very friendly. The food was also good and tasty but a bit pricey. Order extra fries and expect really king size. Iíve tried 9 new beers here.

Iíll confess - I donít like hideously smoky and noisy bars - and this pub drove that home. One hour within, and everything about me reeked of smoke. Spoilt the beer tasting, in fact, which is a shame as it had a pretty interesting beer list. Not a ticker paradise, but if you want a good beer in a particular Belgian style, this place will probably have 3 of them for you to choose from. Food looked pretty good, but a little pricy for our spend all our money on beer backpacker budget. However, the beer snack we had (coarse liver pate and fresh dark bread) was very good value for money and if served with a lettuce leaf and tomato would have been considered a whole ífarmhouseí style meal in some UK pubs.

Nice bar, typical dutch wooden interior, but still quite modern. Lively, but friendly atmosphere. Good selection of beers.

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

Has 8 taps and less than the 300 Belgian beers advertised due to a "distribution issue." That said, the ambiance was very pleasant, mellow. The service very friendly and food very good. The selection is wide but nothing special that I could tell.

This is the place where I started tasting weird beers 10 years ago. Very nice brown cafť Amsterdam style, good selection of bottles, taps are not very special. Mostly students here, lately also a lot of yuppies. Food is nice, it has been worse here (also better, back in the days when they had spare-ribs in Westmalle dubbel-sauce). Prices have gone up spectacularly as in all of Amsterdam, but the taps are overpriced. Nevertheless still a nice place to go for some good beers and a dinner. Snacks are very nice, their home-baked bread is very good.

Visited this pub several times in the past few years, and am pleased to revew it for Ratebeer for the first time. Narrow backstreet pub tucked away off Marnixstraat and a few minutes walk away from Leidseplein. Next door to Thermos Day sauna. Around eight taps and a vast selection of Belgian bottles kept here. Woodpanelling throughout and subdued lighting. Food is excellent but the kitchen is only open 6pm-930pm, maybe a little longer at weekends. Try the fish stew. At other times a platter of bread and cheese is available at the bar. As mentioned by the previous reviewer, the music is loud, although not extreme; and the pub certainly does overcrowd at weekends, and staff make a valiant effort to serve everyone as quickly as possible. This all points to Zotte being something of a victim of its own popularity. Punters were, however friendly, one kind enough to surprise me with a beer simply because I was sharing a table with him and his friends. I recommend a visit but do be prepared for a "sardine tin" if you go on a Friday or Saturday night.

I could skip this in the future... ok for someone not into beer, but a bit disapointing for me.
