Very good food, a good selection of local beers, and pretty good value. My wife had a pork fillet in cream and mushroom sauce, and I had a "Dutch" steak with mushrooms. Both beautifully cooked. Thoroughly recommended. We tried to go again, but it was fully booked. I rest my case!

Near central station (nice view, on the station that is ;-)), good food for a fair price. Friendly service and fairly fast.

Wouldn't return here, ordered half chicken and it tasted so bland and not fresh at all for the price they charge. I would advise walk a bit further to Dam square where all the better restaurants are.

Food was OK but rather pricey for what you get but given that the restaurant is in the tourist area near the Central Station that is to be expected. Service was fine. Not sure if I would return but I don't have any real complaints.

We reached a bit late for lunch so the place was deserted but they were willing to serve which was a relief. The staff were pleasant enough though one man was quite brusque. The food was as expected.

In Amsterdam for only one night (Sat 22nd) due to a connecting flight, hungry and in a hurry, attracted by the "specials" prices on the window, my wife and I came in here for a meal. We ordered a coke and a beer (Heinekin) and two steak and chips, one well done, one medium. Steak & Chips at 10.95 seemed... More

Very good positon , just near red light . We had group reservations for 15 people and everything was just fine . A little slowly in serving but it's a crowdy place . Many beautiful paintings inside.

Average food, poor service, high prices. When we wanted to pay cash with notes and coins - as we were leaving the country and didn't need any change to take with us back home the waiter said it is not acceptable. After a discussion that we are not going to pay any other way he took the money.

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighbourhood 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.
