Wow this place I don't know how its open still. Absolutely disgusting and dirty. Asked for a jug of fresh tap water and the state of the glass and jug it came in i felt sick. It was so dirty i dont understand how the person pouring the water could not see how dirty it was. Told the waitress who... More

We stopped at Poco Loco for a quick dinner, since the outside tables were quite full, so we expected a good meal. Sadly, when I received my burger, the bread was hard and stale. After one bite, I decided to eat just the burger patty, and it was a bit burned and tough. Since we were in a rush, rather... More

This was the most disappointing of all the eateries I visited on a recent trip to Amsterdam. I hate it when a menu says one thing, but what you get is something different and this happened to me and someone else in my party. I ordered patatas bravas from their tapas menu, but what arrived out was potato wedges with... More

Usually you expect places that are fully loaded with tourists to encompass all the same components (cheap/dirty food, bad service) that make up a tourist trap. But this is not the case at all with Poco Loco which has super friendly staff and serves tasty Mexican/international food and scrumptious tapas! In summer they have a terrace looking out on the...

Visited Poco Loco spontaneously, when we were looking for other planned place, but totally lost between Amsterdam channels. We had chosen Poco club sandwich (mostly bacon, onion, egg, cheese, salad) and beef tenderloin with onions, paprika, mushrooms and fries. Well, on the one hand the beef was incredible tasty! Even bread was great. But on the other hand sandwich was...just... More

Try their scrambled eggs with bacon, et al for breakfast - its delicious. Located close to many dining options offering some delicious food and a good selection of alcohol!

Visited this place purely on the overall good score from trip advisor, and we definitely agree with the lesser reviews posted. Tapas were bland and not good, service was friendly but we didnt get the free bread everyone else is mentioning here. I also ordered the 7-tapas sampler but they only brought me the 6 piece (which was fine since... More

Had a really disappointing meal here. We'd read the good reviews and thought we'd give it a go, and at first all was promising! It had a great vibe, a free table even though we hadn't booked, and the waitress was very friendly. We ordered drinks but when mine arrived it definitely didn't taste like what I asked for...then some... 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.
