In the area for two nights for work and looking for places to check out, this kept on popping up and was a great find. Small intimate bar with seating for about ten with plentiful tables in the seating area around. Unreal beer selection and...More

This is a great Belgian beer bar with good local food, and the best bitterballen I had in Amsterdam. My partner is a brewer, so on our first night we made our way to this bar. They have all the proper glassware, and we drank...More

Had a meal in here last night and their special of lamb stew was just superb. very tasty indeed ! They have also got a much improved bottle beer list. Only problem was that they no longer accept Visa or Mastercard: just Maestro & cash.

De Zotte is a small and intimate bar with a great atmosphere. We visited a couple of times and there was always a warm welcome. Fabulous selection of bottled beers and the bar staff were very knowledgeable. The food was delicious, not a huge menu...More

You would never guess you are going to have an amazing dinner at this at times completely packed dive bar with one server and virtually no space. Somehow, though you find not only great food but the biggest selection of beer in Amsterdam. Don't get...More

Walk a couple of block out of the tourist area to find this friendly neighborhood bar restaurant. The beer selection is extensive. I especially liked the Belle Fleur IPA and Zoot IPA. Try a kwak for a cultural experience. We ate steak with mushrooms and...More

We have been burned by some Trip Advisor recommendations on our trip. Some top rated places were subpar. My friend that lives locally recommended this place. We had quite a bit of food and beer and ended up around 50 euro. Highly recommend.

We stayed for two nights in Amsterdam and were told to go there for a meal and beer. What a good recommendation that was. The choice of beer is so enormous that it is hard to choose which one to go for. We also had...More

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring

Its not necessary to book though if you are not going to go early say 17.00 but later at say 19.00 on some busier nights then I'd book to make sure you have a table.

Not sure of the legality but have never seen any children here in 15 years. There are plenty of lighter, airier places that welcome children who I think would feel out of place.

Reasonably priced and they do have specials which are often cheaper than some of the normal items. I'd expect to pay from 15 Euros to 20 Euros. Their menu is very similar - price-wise to the Tripel bar (which they also own... More
