Place wasn't busy, staff were more interested in talking to locals and each other rather than pulling beers. avoid.

Arendsnest is a very classic beer room that also serves wine, scotch, and snacks. They have around 15 beers on tap and many more by the bottle. The upstairs is noisy and fun and the downstairs in the back can be a bit quiet. You can try anything from a real Belgian Trippel to a locally brewed west coast style... More

I was fortunate enough to find this little bar in the city. It has an excellent selection of various Dutch hand-crafted beer. Probably one of the best in the city. Very friendly staff. A must stop.

There are at least 30 reasons to go to this place and if you don't limit yourself to drafts their are plenty more. Basically this place is all about good quality beers. It has a relaxed feeling to it and is a perfect place to begin your evening.

The ground floor is rather small and crowded but that's where the beer is. There's more room downstairs but you need to go upstairs to order. Selection is very good. You won't be disappointed.

Favourite place in Amsterdam. Amazing beer choice which constantly changes. Fantastic staff who are keen to recommend beers you might like (give tasters etc), even when it's busy. Even if you can't get a table it's fun to sit at the bar and soak in the atmosphere. The cheese/meat boards are delicious too. And try their Jenever, again a specific... More

Wonderful place to meet nice people and drink great unusual beer. This got rave reviews under restaurant category, which is quite misleading, as there only cheese plates available. BUT beer, room, people , and bartenders were great! Go for the beer and the vibe.

It's a normal looking bar with a great beer selection. We sat down by the canal, which was very nice. It's located in a great scenic neighborhood. The prices are good for a bar with a good selection.

Always worth a visit to the Arendsnest when in Amsterdam to try out a wide choice of Dutch beers. Be prepared to have to wait to get served.

Very good choice of draught beer and close to Jordaan which is the prettiest part of Amsterdam. If you can sit outside then even better.
