About the restaurant Proeflokaal A. van Wees

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?

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!

Interesting place with excellent local cuisine and a typical and relaxing atmosphere. Excellent fondue and hamburger. I recommend taking a medium breadboard to share with friends.

Very warm and cosy inside. Service excellent and value for money was great. We had the prawn bitterballens and then the cheese fondue. All of it was delicious! The interior of the restaurant is beautiful with all the traditional workings of a distillery still there. Lovely restaurant!

Lively upmarket bar with good range of beer, Excellent food though not a large menu. Mussels and ribs recommended. Quirky building in canal side setting.

What a great find with great service. Our server took the time to explain all of their gins and answer general questions about Amsterdam. We ordered the medium platter, a little bit of everything on the menu. A perfect dinner to go with some Dutch gin and beers. When I come back to Amsterdam, will be back here for sure.
