Description: The Bekeerde Suster is a brewpub in the city centre of Amsterdam, close to the Nieuwmarkt. The brewery is at the back of the pub and is worth watching. If you're Lucky you might be able to see the brewmaster live in action...Besides the brewery we offer another 8 beers on tap and at least 45 bottled from breweries all over the world. We serve a good quality lunch and dinner menu, with some classic dishes.

“delighted with our return visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

We loved it here the first time we came over six years ago and chose our accommodation this time so as to be close to it (amongst other things!). Beer is still great, atmosphere still as good and the food was a great deal better than it used to be (tho it wasn't bad before, but a bit more 'ordinary')

“Great food, okay service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

The food was borderline incredible. The beer bread and beer butter were hearty and flavorful. I had the steak and it was perfectly cooked with a tasty hollandaise cream sauce. The service was neglectful at times and lacked any friendly, welcoming spirit. The overall atmosphere was nice but the place is more properly considered a "bar" than a restaurant. I would certainly go again though.

“Dreadful Staff”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

DON'T GO HERE! Last Sunday, at around 7.00pm, 3 of us went to De Bekeerde Suster. The place had few customers in it. We sat at a table and were asked to move as it was a table for 8. We were shown to a small table in a dark corner. I said no as you could not see. We were then shown to a tiny table by the window and were told that a third chair could be put there. (I wish I had asked to see it done as there was clearly no room). I said no again and we went to sit in a table for 5. We were told that that was not possible. A phantom rush was expected. We left. Service in all your other De Beiaard cafes has always been great - and I have been to them all. In De Bekeerde Suster it has always been poor. (Why did I go back?). We had been there the previous Friday and was served by someone who was making a personal telephone call while he 'served' us.

“Very nice for beer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

A nice place for its awesome beer, made there, in their own brewery, with a nice canal view. During the evening it is also a pub.

“i want to go back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

This place is excellent

The food we had ( a selection of starters to make up our own tapas menu) was wholesome, plentiful, tasty and reasonably priced. The beers are excellent although like everywhere else in Holland are ridiculously priced (I can still get a pint of excellent ale from a micro-brewery here in Cumbria, UK for £2.30)

The atmosphere was just right as all reveiwers have remarked upon and the staff are really friendly and patient

I wish we had found it earlier on our visit
