My wife and I were returning to our hotel, the Sofitel Grand, from a fabulous boat trip (Small Boat Company) around the canals. We saw this place, sat outside and ordered some food and drink. Now, it is a busy road and the tables had smokers at them so we moved inside. Light, airy, good menu... My wife ordered a... More

It look normal outside but inside is very charming. The wait staff was extremely helpful and kind. Best restaurant experience in Amsterdam for us.

Visited here for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. Nice spots to sit outside and people watch. Menu has vast selection, but is let down by the slow service. The steak was a great choice. Good quality cut of meat and cooked very well. Would recommend visiting again, but not if you are in a rush!

Nice patio area to people watch. Good food at reasonable prices. The beer is cold and reasonably priced. Service was prompt and friendly with an English menu. Try an order of their Spring Rolls. Very Good

Nice friendly staff and an easy to find location. I especially liked the croquette selection - a mysterious selection of differently flavoured deep fried balls which were about the best I have had.

Nice place, nice views, nice food, nice drinks! Had a really lovely table outside eating lunch with friends. Little bit expensive but I don't regret going!

We came here after dekmantel festival needing some good and healthy food. We stopped here just by walking by and out of exasperation of just finding SOMEWHERE to eat. It was well worth the decision! We were served by a friendly waitress and we had the finger food buffet, the goats cheese Greek salad and the chicken ceaser salad. All... More

Stopped here to try some Dutch traditional food. Nice terrace friendly staff but 45 min for our food to arrive and cold! I thought they may be very busy so I didn't ask for the food, I don't like to be impatience but when I use the ladies I realised the inside was empty and most of the tables outside... More

Wednesday night dinner just down the road from DAM square. Chicken stuffed with cheese, prunes and dates was very tasty and served with gratin potatoes. The med salad was requested with dressing on the side which was provided. Between the two meals we were well fed and with a few beers/wine; well watered too. It seems to be frequented by... More

Waited over one hour for small burger and two wraps. Not very friendly staff, the food was ok, but overpriced.

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.
