A small, very popular bar with a party atmosphere (so it can be crowded, with people spilling out into the street). The beer list is reasonable although itís mainly Belgian, which is a pity when there are so many good Dutch beers these days. Service was friendly and quite efficient. (Visited 23 September 2014).

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.

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.

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.

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.

Belgium/Dutch-mix style bar focused on Belgian beers and younger going-out crowd. Kinda small and a very relaxed atmosphere. Liked the music, too. We were (very?) lucky to find a table on Saturday night and it was busy but no overcrowded at all. Staff seemed surprisingly knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. Selection almost exclusively the more well-known Belgian (and some Dutch) ales. Would have expected more rarities but frankly there was enough to choose from. Liked the offering of Arabier and Oerbier, for example. Also the Orval was presented with the last yeasty bit served in a separate shooter glass - havenít seen that level of detail before in a bar like this. Prices are reasonable, especially considering how close it is to Amsterdamís Leidseplein. Recommended!
