    A really cute restaurant with great cheese fondue! I had the one with truffle and it was a great add to the already rich taste.

    The servers were perfectly nice but the actual service was slow. I ordered drinks I never received but it was on the bill. I was desperate for another drink with my meal and had to go up to a server who seemingly entered in the drinks on the computer but never actually brought it up. There seems to be no designated responsibility as servers were all around doing various tasks. No one checked in on us.

    Fantastic evening in this beauty of a bar. The service was brilliant, they know how to pair Jenever to food and have just the right suggestions. Looking forward to our next visit at this Amsterdam gem.

    Excellent food, nice cozy atmosphere and great service. Also good to have the ‘old distillery’ vibe. Overall a good lunch and not expensive at all

    We went the first night and had the fondue and congratulated ourselves on our ordering choice. Then we came back the second night for the mussels and again were totally satisfied.

    Quaint, good character in this charming restaurant. Friendly service, though not very quick service. Definitely good food, though not amazing. But a very fun fondue dinner overall that we enjoyed with our 9 and 12 year olds!

    Amazing night eating the best fondue in town. Service was very slow at the beginning, and we had the feeling we were creating an inconvenience to the restaurant (party of 11). But that didn’t prevent us from having a good time :)

    We where four persons who had made a reservation on this restaurant. It took very long time before we could order anything. Than finely we got the drinks. After long time, when the food finally came, the waiter drops half of our foods on the floor! So some of us could eat and the fourth must wait for another while...When we payed we asked if we do get any compensation for the accident, but the waiter just went away whiteout an answer.So, slow nonchalant service.

    It was not a touristic place and there were a lot of local people eating at the restaurant. The staff were nice. I would visit this restaurant again during my next travel to Amsterdam.

    Traditional Amsterdam proeverij with a small number of classics and some seasonal items on the menu. Excellent service. Chocolate dessert was fabulous.

    Actually visited twice. Once for dinner and once for a drink. We had the plate with various items including meats and cheese. It was delicious. Visited the bar for jenever and the bartender was very nice and friendly. Made great recommendations.

    Great genever and the staff were friendly and helpful and very knowledgable on the genever. The menu leaves a little to be desired but what there was was well cooked. Overall a great night out and one I’d recommend to anyone

    The wait staff were really friendly and warm and very helpful about recommending the different types of gin. We had the steak, the cheese fondue, the bitterballen and the Apple pie and everything was delicious. And we sat outside overlooking the canal. A great experience!

About the restaurant

In the official tasting house A. van Wees the ambience is unrivalled. Of course the magnificent building and the cozy interior deliver a great contribution to that. But it’s also the exceptionally high quality that immediately embraces you here. Quality of food and drinks, but also of the staff. That is definitely necessary, because they serve 15 types of gin, 62 kinds of liqueur, and also the popular Van Wees Gin & Tonics. What do you want?
