Great selection of beer in a cosy historic setting. Great part of town. Service was excellent despite it being busy. Beers over candlelight.

If you’re a beer lover visiting Amsterdam, check this place out. Great list of Dutch beers and staff were friendly to tourists. We grabbed a couple drinks here before heading to a dinner reservation at another restaurant.
