The selection of beers is amazing. The place is acceptable. But the service is bad ...one of the waiters got pissed because i ordered the beer by its number instead of saying its name. He said: "we are not in a Chinese restaurant".

There is no bar like it. All ages go and mingle together. The bar staff know all about the beers they sell - and what a choice of beers. Too many to mention. They change regularly and there is definitely a beer for anyone. The street outside is incredible. Always fascinating people passing. This bar is a real must if... More

With so many beers to choose from we thought we'd be intimidated but our barman for the afternoon was such a great host that we easily managed to try some of the best that Belgium, Holland and France have to offer in terms of beers and lambics. Some are great value, some are wildly expensive but if you love beer... More

This place has a great many very good (and often very strong!) beers and knowledgeable staff who are happy to assist you in your choice. It's easy to while away an afternoon here playing one of the board games with a friend, and the atmosphere is relaxed and jovial. I will definitely be returning on my next trip to Amsterdam!

I don't know if this is the world's best bar as there are too many I have not visited but it is certainly the best I HAVE been in! I have been coming here for more years than I care to remember and have seen many new staff arrive but the common denominator is that they all know and love... More

Lovely beer but I would say that we was the youngest at 21 by at least 10 years. I would recommend it though it's a bit hard to find a seat so small groups recommended

Lots of beers to choose from but limited tables so if you need to sit down for a drink this may not be the place for you. Good service and good price!

Still the best bar by far, if you ask me. Great staff, great beers. My taste spots hit the roof every time. If you don't go here, then you haven't been to Amsterdam! Cheers!

A place famous for its vast collection of beers, and because it was one of the venue's for Michael Jackson (no) to record his Beerhunter TV series. They've been around for over 25 years and boast 18 taps, with regular guest appearances of casks. The 18 fixed taps have but three beers always on: the rest rotates. You'll find Dutch... More
