Great little place

Obviously, the beer menu is the story of this place. Best collection of Belgian beers in Amsterdam, plus it's always served in the right glass, even if the glass is a glass horn put onto a wooden stand, and the locals have to tell you that you're supposed to lift the whole thing, not just the glass... read more

Went here for some quick beers. They have a great selection of different beers at reasonable prices. Only had some different pub snacks for food but it was really good with delicious sausages and bitterballen. Would definitely come back here if I was in the neighborhood.

Only stopped in for one beer, but loved the bar. Great beer selection, good music, relaxed and knowledgeable staff. Just what a bar should be.

Just got back from dinner at De Zotte. We really enjoyed the country pate but the rib special was the best. The beer selection is vast and pretty darn tasty too. This was the best meal in Amsterdam and the competition is strong.

We wanted a break from all the touristy stuff so sought out this little place after seeing it mentioned on Trip Advisor and so glad we did. They have a great range of Belgian beers and the young girl that was serving us was excellent. A properly dark and cosy little bar with a big atmosphere. All of the food... More

We booked on the day for 8pm, and it was quite busy. There was initially just one woman serving both the bar & restaurant and doing it very well. We had Trappist cheese & country bread to start, which was excellent, followed by coq au vin and lamb fillet, which were both also very good. There seemed to be lots... More

I find it quite difficult to write a review when everything was amazing... so here are a few of the highlights: 1. The barmaid went out of her way to rearrange tables for us even though we hadn't booked for such a huge group (about 12 of us I think). 2. All of our food came out at the same... More

Visited De Zotte last week after a recommendation from a barmaid at another pub in the Leidesplein....SO glad we listened to her! Fabulous atmosphere hits you as soon as you walk in - the place was buzzing! We wanted to eat there and had heard the steak and ribs were both to be tried - so we obliged! I had... More

An absolutely brilliant place. My spare ribs were really tasty. The smiling staff was really helpful. Clumsy me spilled my beer all over the floor but was only met by a new beer on the house. We asked for a recommendation for a beer to go with our meal and they were spot on. I will definetly revisit my new... More
