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.

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.

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.
