This place is just awesome, could be one of the small cafe/restaurant/bars in Amsterdam, but the quality and service is extremely impressive. Had an amazing three course meal of baked Camembert (starter), Steak & Chips, plus salad & Cheesecake for desert for €14.95. Service was excellent and so was the food. There's also a tourist photographic opportunity outside on the... More

Ordered burgers and sides and to be honest one of the best burgers i have ever tried so good job chef! Big portions that... More

The beer was also good. The service is friendly and pretty quick for how busy it was each time we went. We'll certainly visit again the... More

Great beer and food, the staff is polite and helpful. During our stay we came here few times . They also have excellent prices of a three course menu but often it can be really full in the evening and difficult to find a table.

Just happened to walk past this place and decided to try it out and we were not disappointed! Probably enjoyed this restaurant experience the most when we were staying in Amsterdam. The place is very cosy and has a great relaxing atmosphere to it. Value for money is great too! Drinks were cheap and the 14euro three course menu was... More

We were advised to go here by our local walking tour guide. And I would say that it was good recommendation. For 14,95 EUR you will get 3 dishes menu set which was quite big for one person and quite tasty, good variety of drinks in the bar and cheap prices. The service was a bit slow because of too...

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.
