“worth a visit”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

this is a really nice, atmospheric, old bar. nice traditional environment, great range of beers and helpful, knowledgeable staff. not sure if it's a top city attraction, but well worth a visit as a contrast to some of the more touristy parts of town.

“Just Perfect”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

I've been visiting this bar for many, many years and it never ever fails to impress.
Huge choice of beers, from the standard hum-drum pilsners to some very special (and strong) beers that are difficult to find. The beer list is ALWAYS outstanding!!
The staff are very friendly and knowledgable and will guide you through any choices you need to make.
There is no music and instead you are left to chat comfortably with your friends or read a paper or book whilst enjoying beer.

This is a great little hideaway amongst the hustle and bustle of Amsterdam. Seek this place out; you'll be glad you did.

“Have no idea why this place is rated so highly.”
Reviewed October 2, 2012 via mobile

It's an average pub with rude staff . Got a plate of very ordinary cheese and beer after being mocked by the barman. It's pretty grubby and charmless. Don't go out of your way to find it.

“Great Service, Selection and Atmosphere”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

This bar has old world charm with outstanding, knowledgeable and friendly service. Great place to relax and watch the world go by. "The Burger Bar" a couple of doors down has great juicy burgers and fresh cut fries. When you get done eating, go back to Wildeman and try another beer. I'm sure they will have one that you have never tried and they will certainly greet you with a smile.

“An absolute gem! A must for beer lovers..”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

This place is a real find in Amsterdam.. especially if you like your beer.. and when I say beer, I mean PROPER beer.. which also means it's NOT frequented by 'hens and stags', who tend to want to just poor pints of Heinken down their necks!
The staff are friendly and really knowledgeable about the product.. will gladly advise you and let you try draughts if you're not sure..
We went in on our first afternoon in Amsterdam and 'gambled' by taking it in turns to pick a number from the list of 20 draught beers which the staff found very amusing! (if you're going to do this then make sure you only have small ones.. some of them are rather strong!) The weather was OK for September so we were able to sit outside and people watch.. a great way to spend an afternoon or evening.. and 6 beers later we were more than happy!
They also do nibbles to help soak up the alcohol..
