Ive been to Amsterdam many times, and always visit Louis Bar , The Atmosphere never changes , and the staff are always so helpful and efficient. It is a tiny bar with incredibly steep stairs to the loos which just add to the charm of being somewhere unique. Its also so easy to find being the first bar on right off Dam square so ideal for meeting people.

Maybe I missed it but I didn't see any food available,still it's a great wee bar,owners a lovely guy and the staff are a good laugh.The stairs to the toilet are a nightmare but its all part of the fun.Definitely worth a look but not for food.

I have been to Amsterdam sooooooo many times now, I have lost count. One thing for sure is.......... I always call in to Café de Dam for a beer and a chat with the great staff. It is so small but I love it. Always a good atmosphere and good Dutch lager, mid priced bar for Amsterdam.
There are soooooooooooo many pubs in Amsterdam that have no atmosphere at all and all they want is your money! So get yourself to Café de Dam :-)
This is not a place for food, only drinking :-)

A small and lovely bar with great location in Central Amsterdam (Dam Square). The place is cozy and has friendly staff. You are not allowed to smoke in there (loved it). The beer is not so cheap though.
