Small burger place between cafes. Good burgers (bacon and blue cheese) and fried fish. French fries are large chips (topped ours with cheese). Fried cheese starter was really good. Drinks we had rose beer and strawberry milkshake. Good food for quick lunch.

My wife, daughter and I ate at the Downtown American Diner recently. My wife and I had their black angus burger. My daughter had their chicken sandwich. We also ordered a side of fries. The burgers and chicken were tasty, as were the fries. I thought the sodas were a little over priced, and they charged for condiments. A single... More

Tourist trap. Overpriced. Even fast food tastes better. There are much better alternatives around in Amsterdam. Dirty toilets as well.

Just got back from a 3 day stay in Amsterdam. I ate breakfast every morning here, and loved it. The full English is perfect. Great price, and great internet connection.

I came here with my husband to grab a quick dinner after a long day of walking. I was excited because the menu had a veggie burger with a 'homemade recipe' - I'm vegan. This veggie burger came out as what appeared to be canned and overly greasy mushrooms and onions on a bun - hardly a burger. The fries... More

The portions are big but the burger was a bit salty. I ordered the Jack Daniels burger but couldn't really taste the bbq sauce. And they charged €1 for ketchup which I thought was a bit much on principle. I won't be back.

We stumbled across this place one day just before dinner time. We got a seat outside under the heater and watched the people walking by. The service was not very good however we eventually ordered. The meal didn't take too long and when it arrived it was a decent portion and tasted good. Would recommend this to other travellers looking... 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.
