This atmospheric bar, situated on one of the more upmarket canals in the City, is a mecca for lovers of beer - Dutch beer in particular. With about 30 beers on draught and over 100 in bottles it is impossible not to find a good few exactly to your taste. Just don't spend too long looking at the printed bottle... More

This place has an impressive beer and jenever selection and staff that know what they're on about and make good recommendations to visitors based on what thing you like. Reasonable price. Very humorous and friendly bar man. Lovely good sized pub on the canal.

Arendsnest is a very cosy bar with helpful and skilled employees. The location is good, and the atmosphere was impeccable. But the main thing about this place is the vast selection of tasty and exciting beers. With the largest selection of draft beer i have encountered, this beer tasting room is bound to be a success.

Stopped here for a pre-dinner beer, vast selection to choose from and it was nice to sit next to the canal. Waiter was very helpful in choosing a beer for my fiancée. Rose beer for the ladies!

Dutch beer doesn't have to be mass produced fizz and this place is its flagship. The staff are very helpful with suggestions. They don't do much food except for little snacks.

My friends and i came here while visiting the canal ring. We had a lot of fun. There is a big selection of beers and the waitress was a great help in choosing the right beer. The music is great, mainly calassic rock hits. We ate cheese which was good to.

Place wasn't busy, staff were more interested in talking to locals and each other rather than pulling beers. avoid.
