We have not eaten hear before - but have visited another Gollem bar. The selection of beers is incredible - with lots of friendly helpful advice on hand! Selection of snacks and meals was excellent (with advice on what beers to choose with each choice). I had the fish from the specials board - ended up with 3 beautifully grilled... More

AMAZING beer, hearty bar snacks and great friendly service. What's not to like? We visited on a bright, sunny Sunday afternoon and we could have sat there all day. Staff were fantastic, had superb beer recommendations and there was an immensely chilled atmosphere. Perfect for a cheeky stop in you are in the Vondel area. Can't wait to come back!... More

The beef stew is a must for visitors, but anything on the menu will treat you right. Orval and Troubadour Magma are two of my all time favorite beers, but the Gollem Precious is a nice house IPA as... More

Went here on a recommendation which I am happy to pass on. As none beer drinkers our main aim was to eat but given its reputation as a beer Mecca, over 120 beers on the beer menu plus lots more on draught, we had to try some beer too. We ordered the vegetarian fondue made with Trappist beer. It quickly... More

This little bar is not on the main streets but is a hidden gem for those enjoying real beer. Knowledgeable staff, who advised well on the beer. Part of the Morebeer tour.
