Nice and honest Dutch bar. Good drinks, great staff and "heerlijke bitterballen" (delicious bar snacks).

Brilliant vibrant bar. very busy in the summer months but really nice at Christmas time. Great selection of beers but watch the strength of some of them ! You can also eat here but that is a mystery as to how you order. Thoroughly recommend

We found this bar when our son was running the 2013 Amsterdam marathon. The bar is over 100 years old and is uniquely decorated with antiques and artwork. Lots of beers on tap and a full bar.
