One of the top watering holes in the city. The crowd is predominantly local (if generally of non-local origin) and a bit alternative. But don't let that put you off: the vibe is convivial and the music playing, which is usually done by a DJ on almost every evening, is eclectic to say the least.

Sure, it's no de Wildeman, but it's not trying to be; this is a purely unpretentious place where the point is to socialise and just have a nice night out at the bar where there just so happens to be a diverse selection of Belgian brews.

Stumbled into this place on our honeymoon in Amsterdam .Right off the Dam on a side street it wasn't opened during the daytime. Finally at nite on our last weekend there we visited this place. At first we felt like intruders to the mostly local crowd but they soon warmed to use when they found out we were honeymooners. A German sheperd came by a few times and we pet him and then he went back to his corner to lay down. As I stated before it was all locals except us. Met a cool guy named Volley(Voldemier) I think. He told me that if someons stole his bike , he would steal someelse's Haha. Later that night they locked the doors and wouldn't let outsiders in just people they knew. Oh and the Beer was a real taste of Belgian Ales, White, Trappe, Red, All kinds of tastes and potency. Finally we called it a night and stumbled the few blocks to our hotel. I guess anyway!!! To this day I don't remember leaving, or entering our hotel. Next day we went to the Liedesplien to watch the EAGLES/Giants game at a sportsBar. VERY COOL PLace and people. if you fit in that is.

Visited back in June 2012:

Stopped in while on a recent visit to Amsterdam, among other place...and the only way that I can really explain this place is that it feels very much like a dive bar...there were some suspect individuals hanging out there that afternoon. It was a completely different experience and vibe than In De Wildeman. I think that we may have only had one beer and left. They had a good selection on tap, mainly Belgian beers, but the service was not good...the bar tender acted as if we were a burden to her and frankly it was a burden for her to be there as well. The other reviewers have described it well, so no need to harp on that. Overall, didn't have a great experience and I am not sure that I would go back if ever back in Amsterdam.

Cafe Belgique is a great place to visit if are in Amsterdam. A really nice Belgian-beer bar that has all the Belgian staples. It is extremely small and has only a few tables inside, but does have a bench or two outside of the place where it is nice to sit and drink some beers. They have a bunch of good brews on tap and a nice bottle selection. It is close walking distance to everything in Amsterdam (and if you like hamburgers...the Burger Bar has the best hamburger in the world...a short walk from Belgique).

Highly recommend a stop at the beer bar...
