If you want a taste of the Dutch this is the place! Great beers, and very welcoming to Americans! Very knowledgable staff on beers and Dutch sensibilities. Very nice part of town close to many attractions, great stop for refreshment after long walk or tour. All beers are Dutch and can be matched with great cheeses and small dishes.

great Dutch-only beer bar. Knowledgeable staff. Great local offerings. Often quite quiet, but it doesn't detract from experience. I go there at least once every trip.

culture Pa......too busy too over priced you'll learn more about the Netherlands and people in general in a place like this. I'm a British real ale drinker so I struggle with pilsners, found this awesome place, 60 Dutch beers, a mixture of draught and bottled. The bar keepers have beer professor embroidered on their backs and for good reason. Their... More

We went to Amsterdam for the museums and the 'culture', but fell in love with the beer and the many beer cafes (why doesn't the good ol' US of A have places like this?). Of all we tried (and we went to more than our fair share), the Arendsnest is the best. Fantastic selection of beer on tap, and many... More

A favorite place to grab a beer and some cheese (very generous portions too) and chat chat chat with your friends. They have small tasters of beer and regular sizes and have a great selection on tap. They have a few tables outside so when the weather is nice, it's great to sit canalside and enjoy great brew!

Not exactly a restaurant, but the best beer tasting hall we found on our one-week trip to Amsterdam. We found it our first day in town and returned almost every day to try a couple more delicious Dutch beers. Very cozy, casual and comfortable. Always full, but we always found a seat. Lovely low-key wood and brass interior with beer-related... More

This is well worth a visit and not difficult to find. Lovely copper bar and great range of beers. Two really friendly bar girls when we visited - had quite a conversation with them! We stayed until 1 a.m but they never gave the impression they wanted us to leave. Would definitely return.

Wow. I cannot get enough of this place. Just sitting at the bar looking at the pristine polished beer pumps made my throat dry. Which is just as well as this place has to be one of the best ale houses in Amsterdam. My top pub to visit in 2013. On this visit I was in Amsterdam to see a... More
