“Amazing beer, amazing steak!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

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 blau). We left and returned later in the evening to a packed bar with a great atmosphere. Everyone was so friendly and despite it being busy the staff still made time to come to our table and recommend our next beer whilst listening to some of my favourite music.

Overall a fantastic experience, we left with massive smiles on our faces! We will be back.

“My favorite place in AMS -- fantastic food, value, & service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

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 such great service that all of my fellow American friends wanted to take her back home with us to the USA. Thank you again, Nikka!!!!!!!!

I almost hate to write this review because many people might find this hidden treasure.
