“Nice small bar - no food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014 via mobile

Popped in here for a quick beer and it was so nice we had to come back again after our meal at a nearby restaurant. Small bar with a great atmosphere and apparently very steep stairs to the toilets although I didn't visit them.
Bar maid is very friendly and beer is good. Music is on tap and if you have a request it can be accessed via their tunify account.
Well recommended for a drink.

“Great LITTLE bar”

Stumbled upon this bar by chance, luckily it was on first day in Amsterdam. It has a lovely atmosphere, good service. worth a visit just to challenge the steps up to the loo!

“Cosy people watching place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2014 via mobile

Set just off Dam Square. Small cosy bar to enjoy a gluhwein on a cold day and watch the world go by. Bar staff are very friendly and offer advice on where to try if needed. The music played was eclectic but great! Visited 3 afternoon out of 4 spent in Amsterdam.

“A Great Place.......NOT A RESTAURANT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2014

A great little pub. Lots of visitor memories all around. Excellent service from Ank the barmaid. Will return to The smallest pub in Amsterdam next time I travel there.
