This part of the Keizersgracht is beautiful for a walk to experience the glamour of old times. Grand Cafe Walem is one if the few restsurants at this part of the canal. Place is narrow. Menu not very special.

This cozy place is located in one of the beautiful canal houses however, the culinary experience and service were below average. The menu was nothing to write home about. I ordered a goat cheese salad with pumpkin and greens which unfortunately was not that great. Strangely enough, only my friends plate was removed when we were done. Since they never... More

I had lunch here with friends. The food is of good quality, and staff are quite friendly. However, service is quite slow.

Stopped here unplanned for Breakfast. Sat by the canal with the sun (and blankets) and enjoyed a really good meal. Good quality and great selection cheese, eggs, yoghurt, pastries and jam all in once breakfast combo. Service a little slow, but only one guy for the whole terrace and inside looked a busy too.

We visited this restaurant twice because we enjoyed the experience so much. Luckily, we managed to secure a canal-side table, which added to the convivial ambiance. The food was excellent - lamb chops can be highly recommended. We had a brilliant waiter who was on task and friendly. Our food arrived promptly and was of a very good quality. The... More

We stopped here for a late lunch and went out the back into the open air courtyard. It has canal frontage seating, indoor seating and then the courtyard. The food was really good, I had a fish and couscous salad and the coffee was also really good. The service was however slow. The staff were friendly and easy-going but our... More

Left outside for 45 min with no service at all. No apology when we complained. Won't be back. Shame because it's a lovely spot on the canal and food options looked quite good.
