Time Out says

3 out of 5 stars

This famous old Dutch pub was once a refuge for homesick Dutch sailors, then later became a rallying point for the Dutch Resistance during World War II.

Dotted with retro beer ads and faux Dutch Masters, it now attracts punters savvy about their Benelux brews, with taps offering the likes of Hoegaarden, Lindeboom, Franziskaner, Früli and Leffe. The bottled options fill one of the venue’s natty menus: Kwak, Delirium Tremens and Chimay all come in their own logoed glasses, although the gift-wrapped Bacchus is pretty enough without.

The food menu mixes English and Dutch cuisines, along with the kind of bar snacks – bitterballen, loempia – you might find in any Amsterdam café.
