My wife and I went on a city break to Amsterdam during April. The guardian newspaper advised visiting de Zotte and the recommendation did not disappoint. The atmosphere is lively whilst it seems a little crowded inside. There is an awesome choice of lovely tasting beers. We both had the homemade quiche that was just delicious, I really recommend you try it.
We both had a great time. Get there early to get a good seat as it gets very busy.

We walked in for some comfort food on the last night of a 2 week trip and were pleasantly surprised. Friendly service -- it is always humbling how many people speak English as a second or third language so well, whereas Americans like us typically can't manage any other language. Excellent beer recommendations. We had very, very good stew, with phenomenal flavor and sauce.

A fun place to have a special beer with a friend. They have a nice beer-menu with special beers from Belgium. The public is a mix of locals and tourists, having dinner or drinking.

I like to atmosphere in this bar, they play good music and the staff is friendly. The prices of the special beers start from 4 euro's, which isn't cheap but an average price for special beers in a bar.

Eaen here several times now and the food is usually pretty good. Had one or two specials that were really special and one or two that were decidedly not special. C'est la vie.

Anyhow, beer-wise I tend to think its a bit expensive and the quality of the draft beer isn't all it should be. Having said this, it's a much Better place than the vast majority of Heineken haunts in the area so well worth checking it out.

A long established haunt of serious beer lovers, De Zotte offers dead safe food options and the occasional gem for the dining clientele. Essentially a pub but I noticed parties arriving to dine rather than sample the extensive Belgian listings.
I did dine and thoroughly enjoyed my meal, but De Zotte is near the top of my pub list and there will be many more visits.
Can be a little tricky to find, so homework first and avoid a lengthy wander around Amsterdam!
