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.

“Real Dutch food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

Most people ask 'what is real Dutch food?' well this is the place to find it. Real Dutch food is not that exotic, but it's tasty, filling and at this place, affordable.

My wife and I went here twice on our week long visit to Amsterdam. Busy and loud, the service was excellent and the food very honest. Try the ERWTENSOEP - pea soup with sausage, a meal in itself (just like my mother used to make).

“Really good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

We didn't know where to eat, so many restaurants were either Italian, Chinese, Thai or Argentinian steak houses, the menu looked OK so we went in. We hadn't realised it was actually recommended in our guide book. It is like a micro brewery with a huge choice of beers as well as wines and soft drinks on offer. I chose the Witte Antonia - unfiltered wheat beer - recommend that to anyone! The food was excellent too, I chose fish which was cooked perfectly and my husband had steak, again, beautifully cooked. Apple pie for desert rounded the evening off perfectly. Prices were reasonable for a city centre restaurant on a canal. Staff were friendly and helpful, couldn't ask for more.

“A place for beer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013 via mobile

We just stumbled across this place, unfortunately it was the day we were leaving so could only stay for a couple of beers which were delicious. They have 7 or 8 beers they brew on site a wonderful little place that I will visit again

“Good beer and food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

We very much enjoyed our sandwiches at this brewpub which overlooks a canal. We were even able to get a table outside - gorgeous! The beer sampler option, while not exactly cheap, is extremely generous (20 cl per each of the 4 beers) and comes with cheese!

“Great ambiance and food, service needs some work”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

The location, by the Niewmarkt, is great. the ambiance really good (feeling of old dutch bar). Food was great quality (fries, sate kip and ham great, nachos superb, yes nachos in Amsterdam). The service could improve, but would give it another chance.
