“Belgian Bar to be sought out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

Crowded bar serving excellent beer and decent food. Get there early to grab a table - they start food just after 6. By 7 on a Thursday, Friday and Saturday the tables are full. Wide age range, good atmosphere, lots of locals, eclectic music in the background, low lighting, you'll always find someone to have a chat with if you're on your own.
Service is good, bar staff seem to change every few months, steak and chips are both excellent and of course an eye watering list of beers on draft or bottled.
Just far enough off Leidseplein to be off the hen and stag party groups radar.

“Best meal I've ever had in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

Went to this place last year and loved it. Delicious food, nice atmosphere, great selection of beers. Later in the night they play lauder and good music too, sort of like a pub/club. Totally recommend it!

“Fantastic beer!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

A fantastic Belgian beer bar serving limited (but delicious) food! The atmosphere is relaxed and once you step in, you can see that this is a favorite local hang out. Plenty of tables and seats at the bar to enjoy a pint!

“Not a restaurant but what an awesome "bar a biere"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

In case you want to try belgium beer in Amsterdam, this is one of the place to absolutely go. And don't worry, the cook there knows is business too (but don't expect much of the choice), and you will for sure enjoy simple but well done food.
The atmosphere is really cheerful but be aware that if you arrive after 8PM, you might not find a place to seat as the place is pretty small, and quickly crowded.
