This is just my sort of place to eat, there is nothing quite like it in the local surrounding area all these other little places are rubbish and charge an extortionist amount of money, when you go here you know it will be good food, which is what I care about more then prices. I had the turf and surf,... More

Waited for 1.30 with a baby for old meat to be served. A serving girl brought coffee in a broken glass and just spilt it to another glass (didn't make new).

Nice place to have meal. Better to make a reservation in advance. Otherwise you can only choose outdoor seats (and the heater is not really working...)

Good service, would visit... More

The lobster soup with cognac is just a piece of art and a festival for the mouth. Ideal to recovery from cold weather.

Restaurant De Nachtwacht is situated on the corner of Thorbecke square and Rembrandt square. From our closed veranda you have a fantastic view on one of Amsterdam’s most lively squares: the Rembrandt square.
It is also possible to taste the 70´s and 80´s retro atmosphere at one of the lounge tables or at the bar, both figuratively (the atmosphere of our restaurant) as literally the scent and taste of our steaks on the charcoal grill.

For the best steaks you are at the right place. Our butcher from the eastside of the country preserves the high quality of the meat he delivers and our cooks prepare your steak the way you prefer.
