Good beer, good food!

Be warned ahead of time: This place can get packed. Lots of locals love it and with good reason; you can find tons of beers and have a great evening. The bar staff was knowledgeable - since I'm from out of town I described the beer I would like and they brought over exactly what I was looking for... read more

Great beer bar with around a dozen or more beers on tap with plenty more in bottles. Can get very buys and whilst most smokers do go outside to smoke, they "waste" in my opinion a third of the space as its given over to a usually empty "smoking room" - how weird is that ? And annoying when you... More

One of the places in town with the largest selection of Belgium beers, cozy , friendly, not far from the center and with a good food range. Live band on Saturdays, always recommended to book in advance as the place is crowded at anytime.

This place is a short walk from Vondelpark and the fancy shops on PC Hooftstraat. They do a fantastic meat or cheese board. Very traditional Dutch style food. The chefs bake all of their amazing breads on the premises. This place gets VERY busy. Summer or winter, in the evening it is packed. Normally very quiet for lunch though. They... More

A bigger brother than the much smaller bar near to Spui and with a better food range. The meat platter is great. Always a great vibe in the evening. Try their Precious IPA brewed especially for them.

On our recent trip to Amsterdam,we made a point of visiting as many great beer bar's that this great city has to offer. It is no longer a point of just drinking,heineken,Amstel,brand,dommelsch,or gulpener beer's while your here. Craft beer bar's are popping up all over Amsterdam,the Gollem cafe bar's,were the first and in my opinion,still the best. We were here... More
