Description: Restaurant De Nachtwacht is situated on the corner of Thorbecke square and Rembrandt square. From our closed veranda you have a fantastic view on one of Amsterdam’s most lively squares: the Rembrandt square. It is also possible to taste the 70´s and 80´s retro atmosphere at one of the lounge tables or at the bar, both figuratively (the atmosphere of our restaurant) as literally the scent and taste of our steaks on the charcoal grill. For the best steaks you are at the right place. Our butcher from the eastside of the country preserves the high quality of the meat he delivers and our cooks prepare your steak the way you prefer.

“Average food, nice location.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

Being a local in Amsterdam for the biggest part of my live, i ofcourse know this restaurant.
It has changed owners several times in the last few years, Before that it used to be a family owned restaurant and was part of a small chain which included restaurants such as 't Seepaardje and Castillo and Castell.
Nowadays i would consider the food ok, not the best, but it is good food. The steaks are of a reasonable quality. The "Gamba's PilPil" are also nice.
The location on the corner of the Rembrandtsquare is quite nice though! If you wan'na have a nice meal, in a typical Amsterdam steakhouse, with also something to look at outside, this is a good place to go to!

“Great steak...but spareribs are simply delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

On a business trip to Amsperdam we invited our clients to this small but cozy and nice restaurant in downtown Amsterdam. Very good choice. We were enthusiast beef eaters and after that we are more convinced that if you find the right place you enjoy the taste of great food in a great environment. Also service was great: all waiters and waitress are kind and quite fast even if it depends on how much the restaurant is crowded. Worth to go!
