We loved the twinkling lights and romantic atmosphere for our date. Our three course meal was delicious, with unique flavors and ingredients in each dish. Everything tasted very fresh, and the service was outstanding. A plus for us thirsty Americans - free refills on water! We will definitely be back!

Excellent food and service. Be sure to allow enough time to fully enjoy your dinner. The experience is just as important as the quality of their food. It was a lot of fun to sample their amazing selection of local beers throughout our meal. This restaurant is also wheelchair accessible which was an added benefit to us.

I have been to Dwars for an informal dinner with my company. The staff and the chef were friendly, easygoing and made the atmosphere nicer by explaining the different types of beers they were serving us. The food was delicious and well accompanied by the beer! Highly recommend the restaurant!

Wasn't quite sure what to expect with Beer Pairings. However, it was a great concept and it works. The staff are beer experts and the food is equal to any Michelin guide standard. Really enjoyed our evening, especially as my husband is usually made to feel second thought when he asks for beer rather than wine at most high quality... More

Great care and top quality ingredients in all dishes. We had friends in town, and they were happy to have us enjoy a relaxed meal and take our time.....really nice to not be rushed. The duck was exceptionally good! The chef came out for a chat after our meal to see what we enjoyed most, which was a nice touch.

It's no longer enough to serve fine food. The best restaurants have a theme that delivers an experience. DWARS is unique in that it serves not fine wines but fine beers with each dish. The beer sommelier is very knowledgeable and passionate about her job and will offer you two options with every dish so you can choose. The menu... More

Go and enjoy - the beers are extra though - share the beers for greater economy! We had a lovely time and stayed for over 4 hours so make sure you have lots to talk about too.

Staying in Jordaan

Neighborhood Profile
Jordaan
One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll through this especially convivial warren of narrow streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and quality galleries. Historically a haven for the working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is better known as an enclave for artists and designers. As popular as the Jordaan is as a destination for locals and out-of-towners alike, the area never feels particularly touristy or overrun with outsiders. A highlight even for long-time Jordaan residents, be sure to accept any invitation to step within one of the area’s beloved courtyards or to have a sneak peek inside one of its many working studios.
