Visited on Friday 14th Oct 2005. It is a lovely long room with the bar running down the left hand side, with the exception of the area just inside the door where a large circular table is located. This was where our foursome sat.

The atmosphere was tainted slightly by the music being played. It wasn't the kind of music one could ingore and leave as a background. The other minor irritation was when people passed in, they invariably left the door open causing a cold breeze to blow on us.

Enough quibbling! Excellent selection of Dutch beers (only Dutch, so hence the 4 ranking). I had Joppen Hoppen, Mary (de Prael), and Texels Bok all on tap. I confess I wouldn't really know enough about Dutch beers to order many bottles.

This is a very nice beer bar, and a must visit when in Amsterdam. (803 characters)

They have a great selection of Dutch beers, only Dutch beers that you can not find many other places. Bar staff were very friendly and willing to help with making a choice. Looking forward to going back!! (206 characters)

A cracking pub with 30+ beers on tap & more bottles than I could count, all of the Dutch beers. The place also had a good seleciton of Jenevers as well, literally everything they sell is Dutch. Had a good few beers here and the majority were excellent, with plenty from De Molen, most of the La Trappe range and some good beers from Emelisse too. The price wasn't bad either, I got the tab at the end of the night fearing the worst but was happy to find most beer were around €3-4 with some of the stronger ones coming in at €6. An excellent pub that was quite busy on a Friday night but very friendly. The bar staff were also very pleasant, recommending various drinks and letting you try a few as well. A must visit. (722 characters)

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. (537 characters)

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. (153 characters)
