5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014 NEW

It was a rainy night, we didn't feel like going far. So, we looked in the handy map view, and found De Zotte. It was highly recommended, and seemed to be open. That was good enough for us. And we were not disappointed. Maybe 5 stars is a little generous, but certainly we had no complaints. The fries are, as... More

We came here on recommendation and we weren't let down. We arrived to an empty bar as it was still quite early but spoke to the barmaid who made us feel welcome and advised us what beer we might like (from an extensive menu!). Also ordered the steak which was one of the best I have ever eaten (order it... More

I wish I could give de Zotte 6 stars. The food is fantastic. Besides being a great meal, the value of the meals are absolutely the best I have found after coming to Amsterdam nearly 10 times now. The service is also the best I've had in Holland. Our bartender/waitress, Nikka, was efficient, friendly, helpful . . . and provided... More

More than 300 Belgium beers to choose from, plus great food and fantastic pomme frites! What else do u need? This is a small unassuming place with great service. If u r looking for great beer, then this is the place!

Unexpected great beer menu in the heart of Amsterdam, yet not on a too-crowded street. The range of food is not huge, but it sure is tasty and filling, which is what you need while pouring down all those amazing beers. Also, good value for money. Make sure you are there early though since it gets very crowded at around... More

Excellent bar/eaterie. Even though it was midweek in February the last free table had gone by 7.30 PM. Very popular with the locals and well worth the few hundred meters walk from Leidseplein. The food is generic european 'fusion' but you would have be someone with extremely restricted tastes not to find something good to eat.

Fantastic little Belgian beer bar and restaurant not far from Leidseplein in central Amsterdam. Excellent beer selection, and always a new and interesting "beer of the month" to try if you cannot decide on anything (like me). Food selection is not a huge range but it is excellent quality and great value for money. The service is always super friendly... More

Enjoyed a meal here when away for the weekend in Amsterdam. All the food was lovely and they do really nice beers/ales and the staff are really friendly. Read about it in the guardian and really glad we went but if you're going make sure you get there earliesh 7.30-8 as it gets quite busy and is a cosy place.
