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!!

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.

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.
