A v cute little bar and a good selection but is pretty blokey although I drank wine the night we visited and the barman was v accommodating so he gets extra ticks for that.

Good variety of Belgian and local beers. I was there in 2005, 2006, 2008, 2013. It is my tradition when I arrive to Amsterdam.

Another small and cramped craft beer bar in Amsterdam. When I entered the bar I needed a couple of minutes before I could read the tap list due to condensation on glasses. There is a sitting area up a few steps on a mezzanine, where we managed to squeeze in six more people. Indeed a charming place! Decent beer selection and a flight is 4 x 15 cl for€ 9.25. Attentive and nice service. Male drunkards, be aware! The staircase down to the loo is extremely steep, actually more like a ladder! And when you have unleashed the Salmon, some may have a problem with the elevated toilet bowl. Dwarfs will face a serious problem! I enjoyed my stay. A fun experience.

Ok als je voor Belgische bieren komt helaas is er verder op nationaal en internationaal front weinig te ontdekken. De prijzen zijn er redelijk en de sfeer is goed

Visité en octobre 2013. Endroit minuscule (qu’est-ce qui ne l’est pas au cœur d’Amsterdam) dans un petite ruelle. L’intérieur est à la fois superbe et déconcertante. On a peine à croire qu’on ait réussi à mettre autant de tables et de bancs dans cette superficie. Aller au toilette est un défi en soi avec son escalier (échelle) à 80 degrés. Bonne sélection de bières du pays et quelques belges. Bon service également et prix abordables. Belle place si on n’est pas trop claustrophobe.

Very cozy (cramped) in a beautiful area. Selection is decent. Can’t compete with the best ones but you’ll surely find something worth drinking here. Friendly staff, so worth a visit.

This place not impressed me .. Nice small place with a good guy serving you but the selection is overrated here .. It’s a good place to hang out but not a must visit beer destination ..

Visited late evening, not as crowded as I expected but still plenty of people. Wooden interior, big bar that looks good to sit around, some tables on the back. I don’t remember the tap list but it was nothing interesting, otherwise I’d remember I guess. Bottle list was nothing special either, mostly belgian beers and some local dutch ones, I had their own beer here plus another from a bottle, good atmosphere, too much light though. Prices on the high side.

Cozy, small, rather dark and old-fashioned bar with lots of wooden interior. Seating is placed around the bar and at the tables in the back. A bit more than a dozen taps with a rather bland selection plus an extensive list of allegedly 200 bottles. Focus is heavily on Belgians, especially the classic ones, accompanied by a few Dutch micros and a handful of classic German beers. This is definitely not your tick-heaven but a very broad and complete collection of Belgiums beer heritage. The staff is attentive and very helpful, the prices are rather high, even for Amsterdam standards. I thought it is way too warm in there by the way.

Small, smelly and charming place. Visited on a saturday afternoon, enormously crowded but that’s to be expected. Nice selection of mostly Belgian beers and some Dutch craft. Not too exciting for the Dutch beer geek looking for new beers, but the beers served are dependable and of high quality. They serve two pretty good house ales brewed by Muskeers. I’ll probably revisit one day for the atmosphere.
