We were in Amsterdam for a little under 2 days, staying at friend's apartment on Overtoom. We ducked in to this bar just to escape a passing bit of rain. Enjoyed the place so much that we came back the next day. They have 22 Belgian beers on tap and many more in bottles. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable, and... More

I've been here twice in a two year span.. The first time it was great but we were just there for drinks and a snack. The second time it was for dinner. We got seated and waited forever for menus. Took super long to get drinks. In the meantime the waitresses friends came in sat down got served immediately. We... More

Nice lunch. Tasty hamburger and a variety of beer. The pub has a house cat so if allergic, take care.

Then Gollem is the place to indulge it. This branch of the mini chain of bars serves food as well as beer. I have been coming here for over four years. The staff are welcoming, the beers are excellent and the food is an unexpected bonus. They have 20 beers on tap and about 130 in bottles. So you really... More

The title says it all really. busy place; different staff; different times all give you a different experience. They do have a great range of beers and the food is very good too especially some of the snacks. My tip is that if you wait too long then simply go to the bar & order. They will then bring your...

Food was OK but the service left a lot to be desired. We had to ask for things several times (like five times). Some of the wait staffs friends showed up, say down and got served right away. 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
