“Food to die for”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014

The restaurant was beautiful with a lovely sun room where you can sit and people watch in the plaza. The staff was friendly and prompt. Dinner was presented in a timely manner. The food was absolutely delicious. I had a steak cooked to perfection, a salad that was crisp and fresh and a baked potato with a wonderful cream on it. Dessert was equally divine. Overall a truly great experience and a fantastic way to celebrate my birthday!

“Great Spareribs in Amsterdam? Yup!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

Who knew that Amsterdam was ga-ga for Spareribs? I didn't, but I'm sure glad we came to De Nachtwacht to experience them. The restaurant is in Rembrandt Square, directly opposite of the bronze statues of the Night Watch.
We started off with an order of frog legs and Dutch Shrimp Cocktail, both were great. We also ordered the spare ribs and were not disappointed, the meat fell of the bone and the BBQ sauce was very tasty. The french fries were perfect and the service was good.
If you want great spareribs and a fun atmosphere try De Nachtwacht.

“Good choice from Christmas Eve”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

We had no reservation for Christmas Eve. All tables were reserved, but we could seat in a couch, which made our dinner more cozy. The fries were awesome and so the meat. Nice place to go!

“Great steaks and sides”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013 via mobile

Found this through the Tripadvisor map and we don't regret the extra walk! The steaks were great, the medium-rare was perfect and both the baked potatoes and the french fries were good. I only misses a nice bbq sauce to break off all the mayo-based sauces and the garlic bread should have been grilled. But the steaks...
