This bar is 100% Dutch beer. And it’s amazing. We hung out here multiple times during our short stay. The bartenders we met were wonderful people. One of them remembered my partner from his visit a few months earlier.

One gripe I had (and don't let this detract you at all from coming here): slow service. I’m an impatient American, so sometimes I’m overly picky about service that is actually not slow. However, waiting a half hour to be able to get the bartender's attention, finally being able to tell him what I want, and then after 10 more minutes of him not pouring the single beer I ordered, we left. This was on a relatively slow Monday night, but there was only one bartender and he couldn’t handle the crowd. It was an isolated incident, though, and normally the service is fine (it was definitely satisfactory every other time we were there). I walked to Beer Temple, so I guess they got my money anyways. Oh well. They’re nice people.

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.
