A popular small bar in a prime location. Usuallu very busy. Staff efficient and with a good selection of beers. Highly recommended in a number of guide books with good reason. Has that authentic brown cafe feel that certainly makes it worth a visit

Stepped into this tiny pub because of the sign outside advertising lots of craft and unusual beers; we weren’t disappointed. The bar woman was extremely knowledgable and friendly and we had some flights of 4 beers to taste a variety of different drinks. They don’t...More

What a great find. They stocked my favourite beer and the bar staff knew about the beers they had draft and in bottles. Couple the great selection of ale with a cosy and friendly atmosphere made this a place where we returned nearly every evening...More

Stopped in on a whim. Only meant to have one beer and then move on, but Jonathon was amazing. If you're an American tourist, go see if he's there. We talked music, politics (in a good way) and beer, both American and local to Amsterdam....More

Great bartender, cozy atmosphere, tiny and old. Lots of beers available and great music playing. On the edge of the red light district.

Nipped in here for a swift lager. The name means Eleventh Commandment. It has a delightfully old-fashioned feel with religious nicknacks - mostly Trappist monks - adorning the walls and shelves. Thought this place was more of a pub than a restaurant.

Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the
Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its
saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to
view some of the city’s most picturesque canals,
historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples
of traditional local architecture – not to mention
Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some
