Wide selection of local and Belgian beers, intimate setting

I've visited Het Elfde Gebod last weekend with some friends. What a nice place! Very close to the central station, but not too crowded. They have a very wide selection of beers and very nice local beers (e.g. Oedipus, a new Amsterdam brewery). We truly enjoyed our beers here and left in a very good... read more

We just love Belgian beers and this little bar serves a good range of different beers in a clean traditional setting. Excellent bar staff. Busy as the evening went on so became a bit crowded.

My friend and I recently went to Amsterdam with the aim of sampling a few local dutch largers and planned to go to a few of the top 10 recomended bars. This bar was not on the lists we found. We stumbled accross the bar purely by accident, only noticing the sign saying they had 50 beers on tap. We... More

I've been visiting this bar for 10+ years. It used to be run by a husband & wife team who were unique - he was one of the funniest men I have met, she was beautiful but with a steel core who stood no bad behaviour. He translated the bar name as The Eleventh Commandment (thou shalt enjoy thyself). To... More

We happened upon this bar when strolling around the city. Very small,intimate and quiet. Great beer selection!!! Met some locals and talked for a long time. It was one of my best experiences in Amsterdam and I can't wait to go again this December.

My spouse loved this place so much that we went back for a second visit. It is great beer bar in a very central part of town - oozes charm and warmth. They have an incredible selection of Belgium beers both on tap and in bottles. The bar is ran by man and his son. We spent time talking with... More

What a lovely cafe with a great selection of beers. Carpets on the tables and old furnishings add to the quaint atmosphere. It's the perfect cozy corner to escape the hustle and bustle.
