An amazing bar with great service. About two years ago, we went there and we still remember. They are very friendly and they took the time to explain us about all bitterbal. And most importantly excellent food and drinks. We hope to go back soon!!

Popped in here for a drink on a cold, rainy night and loved it! Everyone was really friendly and helpful and understanding of my mangling of the Dutch language. The bitterballen are hot, fresh and tasty - particularly enjoyed the veal with truffle mayo. Definitely...recommend this place to stop in to refuel with an Ivjet and some bitterballen!More

Don’t book a table as the online system doesn’t work properly. These are not very strong tasting and are a smooth paste with no actual duck meat. These had no taste of duck either and were a total waste of money at €7.50 per 5...piece portion. Only saving grace were the fries. Try another dutch restaurant.More

The food and service at Bar Bitterbal are fantastic! We had the Beef, Wild Boar, Goat's Cheese and Truffle Bitterballen and every single one was delicious. Will definitely be back next time I'm in Amsterdam!
