Quite simply this is a place to go and eat steak, and lots of it... The choice of steaks is quite comprehensive and there are plenty of sides to choose from too, and if your not into great big slabs of meat there are some other options, although I didn't take much notice to be honest! Anyway, back to the... More

I visited Amsterdam with my girlfriend of which we walked past cau. The place is in a great location and near everything. I think you do pay a premium for the food due to the perfect location. The food was really nice and steaks were cooked as we asked but I did find the service was really rushed. The tables... More

The atmosphere is nice, the staff is really friendly and the food... the food! My meat was really good. A bit more of table and dish decoration wouldn't hurt.

Went on a Wednesday night and it was packed. As a large group of nine we all appreciated good food and are quite hard to please but we also wanted somewhere jolly and unpretentious- this place fitted the bill. We all ate steak and despite one hiccup with a slightly delayed order, we all enjoyed ourselves, received friendly and fairly... More

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighborhood Profile
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 less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
