Whereas Gollem is akin to De Garre this place is more like Cambinus in Brugge. More polished, bright, and modern. Great location on the edge of the "nine streets". Another perfect stop after a long days walk. However as most places in Belgium and the Netherlands it opens late. (generally after 4pm) As you know they are serving only Dutch beers (of which I am unfamiliar with) the barman was most willing to suggest and inform. Back page of the beer list had quite a few dutch vintages of course including many from La Trappe. He recommends a very nice cherry beer for my wife that is more beer and less kriek. I have a few of the Brouwerij De Prael offerings. The Mary on tap was particularly good (somewhat reminding me of Bells Batch 8000).

This is definitely a place to expand your beer horizons with an excellent rotating tap selection.

I was recently in Amsterdam and ended up coming back here three nights in a row. The beers are all Dutch and most I had never heard of, but the bartenders were great in giving suggestions and I did not have a bad beer while there. The bar itself is very attractive, lots of dark wood with vintage posters and a long bar that can seat up to a dozen or so people. The clientele seemed to be a mix of locals and visitors and had a great, friendly atmosphere. Highly recommend this bar to any beer lovers who find their way to Amsterdam.

The only improvement I can see is on the food side, which is good but really just bar snacks. Enjoyed a nice afternoon between flights through Schiphol.

Great selection of Dutch beers, and none from elsewhere. Of all the places we stopped on our trip through the Netherlands and Belgium, this place had the best service. The bartenders seemed to know the beers well. It was and brighter than the other great beer bar we went to Amsterdam (Cafe Gollem). If I try hard to think of a drawback, it's that they only have Dutch beers, though there are plenty of of those, and many of them are great.
