Had a huge lomito tonight. Rare. Great meat with a nice blue cheese salsa and salad. The pancake with dulce de leche! Very friendly international staff. Reasonable prices.

I went here with my three sons to have a special dinner for the older son's 21st birthday. It was the perfect place. Fun, relaxed and excellent food! The birthday boy had an delicious and expensive 50 Euro steak and his brothers had an equally delicious bacon cheeseburger.

I love this restaurant! Every time I'm in Amsterdam I visit this restaurant and never disappointed! The starters are tasty and the mains are satisfying and the desserts.. Well a perfect end to a wonderful meal. They have a good wine selection and the atmosphere is pumping with good vibes. Highly recommend!!

Went there for dinner. Reservation required. The meat was good. The salads are not on the same level. There are more more restaurants with the same quality of meat with a better decor and atmosphere.

I went to this place on my first day for lunch and I payed €20 for a steak and it was just a steak on a plate no chips or anything not even a sauce! I ordered some chips that was like €5 and there wasn't a lot and there was loads of salt on them. If you wanted a... 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.
