Stopped here looking for a quick bite to eat at lunchtime. Great patio for people watching but the food was pretty average. Stop for a beer or two, its got a great location, but pass on the food.

A nice spot to eat some traditional Dutch food in amongst more nefarious bars - I would recommend here if you are looking for something a bit more upmarket than some of the localities have to offer. The bar staff are pleasant and helpful, and the Texels beer is worth a return visit alone. However, beware if you think the... More

Good traditional Dutch food. Lovely view across the merging of three canals, can see down the Red Light District canals. Good local beers too!

Located in the Old City, where the Red Light District begins, this is a good place to stop for traditional Dutch food or just for a beer. The bar is downstairs; the restaurant upstairs. Even if most people ask for satay--an Indonesian dish--I recommend the Dutch kroketten and a glass of the house's own brand of beer. Service can be... More

We stopped in for a quick drink and an appetizer. It's really cool on the inside. It great to rest your feet and grab a drink. We can't really comment on the food.

Although the restaurant has a beautiful location, which gave us expectations of a good time, the staff made the experience horrible. We came 5 people at about 13:00. The terrace was half empty. Yet we were still forced to sit at either a table in the shadow at the back of the terrace or at two separated tables. The server... More

The restaurant was very friendly with a good atmosphere. The staff were helpful but did not totally understand their own menu. Generally the food was good but the vegetarian salad lacked flavour, maybe the sauce could be spiced up. The location is excellent, a stones through from central station.

Outdoor seating along a canal in the old quarter made up for just average food. Couldn't tell the difference between the pork satay and the chicken satay.

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.
