The beer was quite good with a large variety of beers to go around. This was the saving grace of course! The problem was with the bartenders. They were both difficult and condescending giving suggestions of the beer or other suggestions for bars. I get it that I'm not an expert on beer or Amsterdam. This is why we asked... More

Who knew The Netherlands had such good beer? Forget the Heineken rubbish, get yourself here to enjoy beer Dutch style. It's more like being in a Belgian bar with a fabulous selection of beer on draught and by the bottle. Great service with a smile from knowledgeable bar staff make this probably the best bar in amsterdam.

The barman totally ignored me and my two friends, when we visited this place on the 15 oct 2015. Not many costumers and he looked busy, but was only trying to awoid us, he started conversation with a customer right infront of us. We left and went to Belguiqe and was treated like humans. Avoid avoid avoid.

I'm very sorry. This is normally not the way how we work. It is one of his last days (the bartender) because he is not the right guy for our bar! Hopefully you we visit us again so we can show you how our service should be. Please send us a email to peter@morebeer.nl More

A visit to Arendsnest is a must on a trip to Amsterdam. Beautiful Dutch beers but they also stock the traditional spirit of Holland, genever (kind of a sipping gin). Snacks like cheese and sausages available but the beer is the focus. Depending on which bartender you get, you have get great service and beer advice or someone who really... More

Great choice of different beers and really good to just have Dutch beer, some excellent beers on tap, the staff were really good and the atmosphere pretty good. However the beers were priced for tourists and expensive, not good value for money

Note: We only sell beers from small breweries (craftbeer) en we are a "free house". These beers cost more then you buy beers from the bigger breweries. (all the investments we did ourself!) Hopefully you understand why our beers are higher in price than by "regular" bars. More

Absolutely agree with Varun D that this place is really worth patronising. The Dutch craft beer range is second to none.

Fighting for worlds attention with Belgian and German beers, Dutch beer never really gets its due credit. Arendsnest is the knight in shining armor that is going to save the wonderful beers of the Netherlands from the depths of ignominy and bring them on par if not help them overshadow their neighbors to the east and south. Truly a must... More

Great place to take a break in the afternoon. The bartender was very knowledgable and samples were plentiful so we got a beer we loved.
