“Fantastic little Belgian beer bar and restaurant”
Reviewed March 27, 2014

Fantastic little Belgian beer bar and restaurant not far from Leidseplein in central Amsterdam. Excellent beer selection, and always a new and interesting "beer of the month" to try if you cannot decide on anything (like me). Food selection is not a huge range but it is excellent quality and great value for money.

The service is always super friendly (especially by Dutch standards) and the music selections is always good (again, by Dutch standards). My only complaints is it can get smokey later in the evening and is sometimes very busy. But overall this is one of my favorite places in Amsterdam.

“Great!”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

Enjoyed a meal here when away for the weekend in Amsterdam. All the food was lovely and they do really nice beers/ales and the staff are really friendly.
Read about it in the guardian and really glad we went but if you're going make sure you get there earliesh 7.30-8 as it gets quite busy and is a cosy place.

“Belgium beer”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

They have nice set of Belgium beers. Especially I like fact that they have Kwak from tap, it is rare case in the Amsterdam. Food is rather tasty, spare ribs are awesome and lamb stew is ok. They don't have much place, so you definitely need to make a reservation for the evening visit.
Staff are rather friendly and cheerful.
Overall it is great place, I love it and I'll visit it again.

“Wish this was closer to home”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

Lovely bar that was recommended to be by a local barman. Me and a friend visited twice in a 4 day holiday. Great beers, helpful and friendly staff and a wide selection. Nice atmosphere really adds to it. Some of the beers I discovered there I now actively hunt for at home. If I return to Amsterdam I'm certainly going there again

“Great range of beers”
Reviewed March 11, 2014 via mobile

Great bar. Lots of beer choices and reasonably priced. Didn't eat there, but the food we saw looked delicious. Only negative was that the wine they served wasn't great, so swmbo wasn't as keen....
