“Bad service”

Nice place, confortable and big BUT the service was a nightmare. The waiter was very drunk, he made mistake whit beers and let fall glasses. He was very slow, he didn't clean his mess.

“Great Beer, food so so.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

Went here twice on our recent trip to Amsterdam. The beer is great, named after famous dutch singers. The price was reasonable even did the tour for 10 euros where you get to taste 4 different kind of beers. Went for dinner and was a little dissapointed. We both had fish and chips, it was okay the batter and remoulade was okay, maybe a little to much batter. However the potato wedges were not very good. Would return for beers, but not food. Also visited their store and bought two beer glasses, prices in their store are very decent.

“Great Micro brews”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013 via mobile

De Prael is a great micro brewery. The selection is great and the enviroment is relaxing. We didnt have any food but the beer sampler was outstanding. The menu was in emglish and they gave great backgrounds of all of the different beers on tap. Would recommend this place to anyone who is in Ansterdam!

Wonderful surprise in the edge of the red light district. The brew pub serves excellent beers and hearty pub grub and snacks.

“Great beer, great atmosphere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Our second visit to Amsterdam & our trip on both occasions included visits to De Prael. Last time we tried to taste as many of the beers as possible, plus bought some bottles to take home with us from the shop round the corner. This time we went on the brouwerij tour & ended up in the bar, where we sampled several different beers (obviously!!) & went back again later in the evening for live jazz. We also managed a final visit before making our way back to the airport. We didn't eat here, but the food we saw being served looked tasty. So, yeah we like this place & would definately recommend a visit. Staff are all very friendly too.
