We stumbled across this venue after hours of wandering around Amsterdam tired and hungry. This place is classy not the run of the mill restaurant in Amsterdam. Lovely atmosphere, lovely music in the background, friendly and helpful staff and great food, not to forget a rather nice glass of wine. This is not a venue for young people on a... More

Dived in here to shelter from the rain for a coffee - ended up having a slice of the most delicious apple cake I've ever had (and I've eaten a lot in Germany!). The place has an art deco look and feel. Very comfortable. Very good and friendly service. Menu was good so we went back later for dinner. And... More

Sometimes you´re in a city center of a foreign city and you just want to have a quiet lunch or dinner with good food. Brasserie Beems is in the middle of the Amsterdam City Center and offers you good quality international food in a quiet atmosphere where you can have a good conversation over a good glass of wine.

We have eaten at Beems on several occasions during different visits to Amsterdam and always come away very satisfied with both the meal and the service. The surroundings are very well appointed while being neither tow old school or too contempory. Very popular place to stop on a pleasant afternoon for an outside drink and some people watching. Meals are... More

I'm really surprised this Brassarie has got a low score. Really nice food, nice service. Very helpful waitress, saw us looking at a map and asked if she could be any help. Highly recommended if your in the area. Only round the corner from the Royal Palace.

It's lunch time and you're walking down Rokin with hundreds of others. You see a restaurant with tables out the front, looks ok,and you decide to stop for lunch. We order drinks, by the time we got them we were wondering if they were brewed in house. The service was lacklustre, our meal order of club sandwiches poor, soup was... 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.
