  • Stunning selection of wonderful beers, fantastic staff and quite simply it's a brilliant bar. I could happily spend hours in here drinking the world to rites. Hopefully I'll be back there again soon.  more »
  • Great service and knowledgeable staff at this European bier bar. Great selection of beers all brewed in the Netherlands, particularly the Belgian inspired styles. Other selections are representative but unremarkable. Large selection and great atmosphere. Close to some boat tour locations.
  • Amazing bar. The feel and charm of this bar brings you back centuries. They have an amazing beer selection from mainly only Dutch breweries. The food is solid and the staff helpful and friendly. Well worth stopping in to check out yourself if you are in the area.
  • Classic dive bar, in the good sense, with long list of Dutch beers. Mostly specials. Seating is ample if a bit chaotic. More space downstairs. Service there is a bit slower because of the blind spot you're sitting in but not too bad. You can always walk upstairs ;) Staff was helpful in suggestions and friendly.
  • What can I say? I was in heaven at Arendsnest. Excellent service from the tall gentleman whose name I did not ask for but I should have. Courteous, engaging and warm. The draught beer is all Dutch and there are some delicious choices to be made. If you don't know what you want, the staff are more than capable of helping you out.
  • Great bar with a large range of beers. Good atmosphere and friendly prompt service. I would recommend and will be back.
