Lovely interior though we just sat outside in the late afternoon sun enjoying coffee and watching the world go by. Nieuwmarkt is lovely in the sun and this terrace has a commanding position.

I was pleasantly surprised to have dinner in this location. The staff is very friendly, the prices are relative cheap and the food tastes great (and also the wine). One of the main advantages of this place is that it is situated in a central area and you can arrive here easily (just take any metro which will leave you... More

My husband and I take all of our out of town visitors (mostly from America) here. It's a gorgeous, historic building, the food is lovely, and most of all, the service is some of the best in Amsterdam.

I saw this on the trip advisor site and thought it would be fun to check out. The building was fun and so is the interior. The help inside the restaraunt was super friendly. I read that the menu was typical Dutch. It was interesting and a small menu to choose from. We decided on some beef with bernaisse sauce.... More

We were looking for an authentic place to eat during a city break. In de Waag was recommended in the guide book. Although listed as a cafe, we booked for dinner and had the most delicious cote du boeuf cooked to perfection. Complete with wine recommendation and lit by over 250 candles, steeped in history this place is a "must... More

We visited In De Waag as part of our quick break in Amsterdam. I have to say, we were not disappointed in the slightest. This was another place that I'd recommended to my friends who had never been to Amsterdam before, and I'm glad I did. The food and wine are perfect, I had to try the 750gm steak and... More

De Waag is a building that dates back to the 15th century and has served as a city gate, weigh house, medical theater and museum. It can be seen in famous illustrations and paintings of Amsterdam. Today the building serves food, to many residents and tourists in a contemporary design that recalls the past with excellent balance. The food is... More

The building is quite cool (used to be a gate to the city, then a weighthouse, now a restaurant/cafe). We went there for lunch. The amosphere was a little destroyed by the roadworks, but that can not be effected by the restaurant. What could be is the quality of the food - I had a burger and it was just... More

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.
