Description: MOES is a Restaurant and Beer Tasting Cellar of local craft beer brewery De 7 Deugden ( The 7 Virtues) in the basement under de Appel arts center in Amsterdam. Taste and quality go hand in hand with care for people, animals and the environment. With always 5 out of the 7 Deugden beers on tap and the rest on bottle, MOES is The place in the city centre to taste the best of this Amsterdam brewery. The 7 Deugden beers get their special flavour by adding herbs and spices. The brewery employs people with a distance to the labor market. Stop by for a glass or a full beer tasting with friends. Seasonal, local products are the basis of the international menu. Veggies are important to us. MOES makes a modest contribution to reducing the distance from farm to fork by growing it’s own herbs in the garden. We serve coffee, tea and homemade pie, flammkuchen and other snacks for the small appetite and four types of burgers from cocktail to closing time. Of course you can dine in the evenings, booking is advisable. Superuse Studios in Rotterdam designed the interior according to the same philosophy; what you get up close, is good. Through a ‘harvest map’ building materials from the environment are found and re-used.

Found the place by accident on our way to the Botanic gardren. We had some trouble getting our stroller down the steep stairs but it was definitly worth the effort. Relaxing atmosphere, good food and friendly staff!

“Great food, great service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

Booked a table at Moes on Saturday night. We didn't want to go to a chain restaurant and saw this online, after reading several good reviews.

It was 5 minutes from Central Station, near to where we were staying. It is a real nice place, the staff were friendly and welcoming. We only had mains as we had eaten a lot earlier in the day, one of us enjoyed burger and chips(!) and the other had a lovely fish with salad and potatoes that literally melted in your mouth! Again, the service throughout was great, a little off the beaten track, but well worth it.

3.90 for a local beer too, ace!

“Great place”

Nice and informal. Relaxed Place to eat dinner. Great food. If you order the wine per bottle and don't finish it, you pay only what you have drunken

“Exceeded all expectations!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014 via mobile

We stumbled on Moes by looking for dinner in Amsterdam that wasn't 'Argentinean', Italian or fast food.

Found this place that is just off the beaten track, but we are so glad that we did.

Arrived fairly late but the service and food were still all excellent. The service by the waiter (evening of Saturday 1st March) was fantastic: personable, knowledgable and confident. He didn't mind at all that we needed a translated menu! He explained the dishes and we opted for the set 3-courses for €32.50. I had the sardines stuffed with chickpeas to start, steak with amazing chips and the cheese board (€2 supplement). It was all absolutely amazing. Cooked, presented and served with confidence. My partner opted for steak tartar to start, guinea fowl for main and then crepe with pear and vanilla compote for dessert. Again, all was just sublime.

We also had a couple of beers and a couple of glasses of wine.

Total bill was €79. As with all Amsterdam prices, this may seem high but Amsterdam is a very expensive city to visit if you're used to British prices (like me), but Moes exhibits amazing value for money. You can easily pay €30 for a 'mixed grill' at any rubbish 'Argentinean' steak house but at Moes you get a gourmet 3-course dinner served with expertise.

Moes was just perfect from start to finish. I can't recommend this place highly enough. This is my 3rd time in Amsterdam and when I come back again I will visit Moes again.

“Delicious and healthy food in a restaurant full of great ideas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013

You can bring your own drinks to this restaurant, what a great idea!
You can eat best home make cookies in town, when you order coffee or thee.
When ever there is a new menu, you are invited to come and taste it.
The place is built with materials from the neighborhood.
And there is a even a room for small groups.
This restaurant serves food not only for your stomach, but for your eyes and for your brain as well!
