We had been there for 30 minutes and were still waiting for our drinks. Staff seemed more interested in smoking cigarettes with... More

Gollem has a good choice of beers (tap and bottled beers), with a good location and tasty steaks. It has two rooms (one for smoking and one not) and tables outside. It is a great stop after a walk in the Vondelpark

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

True to their Belgian inspiration, Gollem has a consistently good Belgian kitchen. Something I miss after moving to Amsterdam from Belgium. 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
