Went here a couple of evenings during a longer business trip. The place seems to be a little bit of an institution in Amsterdam centre. The place is intimate and small with some curiosities around for display. Great beer menu. Friendly service. Very central location...More

My wife and I stopped here to try some traditional Belgian Trappist beers- and we were not disappointed. They had a really good range to choose from. The bar itself is small and cosy with a unique atmosphere, it has very limited seating outside however...More

Me and my friends were regular customers not anymore!!! They really have cero customer friendly attitude. We were passing while celebrating a Bachelorette party and as everyone who knows this place would know that you can also sit outside. As long as you respect this...More

I enjoyed the atmosphere of this little bar and the beers I had were great. Only negative thing I have to say is that they were out of a few beers. Other than that, would definitley visit again.

What luck. We had two beer houses in the small laneway style street where we were staying. This one was our second choice, as the other was full of historic atmosphere. Cafe Belgique was still outstanding, with the service 'spot on'. Make sure you sample...More

Great little gem to stop by and have a great beer when in central Amsterdam. Very kind staff and interesting art work on display. And beer...well we all know how good Belgium beer is. Cheers!

Very small beer house but with an impressive variety of rare beers in the center of Amsterdam. Excellent music. It is not for staying a lot but the perfect choice to take a break in the tour for a half hour drinking fine beer.

A quirky, intimate bar full of character and awesome beer, Kwak on draft and served in the special glasses. Friendly land lady, spent a good couple of hours enjoying beer, just off dam Square.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
