Good Food, Cold Beer, Great Place to People-Watch

We stopped in for a light lunch and drinks and are glad we did so. The service was prompt and polite. We sat outside, beneath a nice awning. The tables and floor were clean. The menu is very nice. Much to choose from. I had the smoked turkey, avocado, and bacon sandwich. It was delicious and... read more

I'm really surprised this Brassarie has got a low score. Really nice food, nice service. Very helpful waitress, saw us looking at a map and asked if she could be any help. Highly recommended if your in the area. Only round the corner from the Royal Palace.

It's lunch time and you're walking down Rokin with hundreds of others. You see a restaurant with tables out the front, looks ok,and you decide to stop for lunch. We order drinks, by the time we got them we were wondering if they were brewed in house. The service was lacklustre, our meal order of club sandwiches poor, soup was... More

What do you reply to a waiter who asks you if you would like another drink after giving you an ultimatum of either ordering a drink or leaving the place only because you want to sit along with your friends who went in to take a drink at the place?? I laughed my pants off :)...... It was unimaginable to... More

Just nipped in for a drink and a snack, sat outside and people watched. Our server was very pleasant, our drinks arrived quickly and with a smile. We just ate from the fingerbite section and had their croquettes, which were incredibly tasty. The only down side is that there is only 1 loo, which meant a long wait for the... More

Service was absolutely dire! Sat down on front terrace for around 15 minutes before being acknowledged. Grumpy staff who gave the impression that everything was an effort. Luckily we did not eat there as two gents sat in between diners puffing away on huge cigars seemed to be bothering the ones that were, staff should of stepped in. We counted... More

We stopped off here for lunch and to escape the torrential rain. The service was friendly and very efficient. Our food was simple - a home made potato soup and a Club Sandwich, both of which were good. Based on a simple lunch I'd recommend the Brasserie.

Visited this establishment as it was close to my hotel and although everyone else was dining at the outside tables...it wasn't a problem that I chose to sit indoors to eat my scallops, followed by a steak and then a red berry pane cotta. Great service but must importantly great food as a good price.

We stopped by here for a large, cold, glass of Warsteiner on a sultry June afternoon. Despite the weather we sat at an outside table (of which there are many but soon fill up once vacated) to watch the world go by. The pleasant staff and service as efficient as one can expect for a busy brasserie led to one... 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.
