Today was my birthday and we were searching for a good, beautiful and romantic restaurant. Than we found the "De Nachtwacht", but they had no free table at the time we arrived. Unfortunately, we had not reserved a table in advance. Fortunately that was No problem for the waiter... and just a moment later he offered us a table. The... More

I found the restaurant here on trip advisor, read the reviews and they were right! The meat was great, also very nice personal in the restaurant. Only thing what you should be aware of is how they prepare the meat. If you like teh steak "medium" you should thell them well done, because medium was rare. :)

It was my cherished outing with a lady friend before the movies. We had some delicious prawns for the starter and some grill for the main course. The dessert was for sure good; vanilla ice cream with hot chocolate sauce.:) The service was good and the wine too. I will surely be back.

Seen from the outside, considering the location, you might think this is a "tourist trap". It is not. The food they present here is just great. We have spent a lot of time in Amsterdam, and we try to find new places for lunch and dinner when ever we have the opportunity to go back. "De Nachtwacht" is absolutely on... More

We visited for a late night dinner, as a chef friend had recommended this restaurant and the ribs, in particular and we were definitely not disappointed. Its not cheap but it is good value for the quality of the meat, the preparation and presentation. You have to order chips as a side, rather than them being included as part of... More
