Amazing churros freshly made in front of us!! We went for the ones sprinkled in sugar but the chocolate ones also looked nice! Cute little place, not far from the red light district. Would definitely recommend!

The Nederland people know their desserts, coming from one sweet tooth to another. We went to Rene's after dinner for a sweet treat. We tried the chocolate waffle and chocolate crepes one evening, and loved it so much we went back for the chocolate Nutella churros the next evening, all were equally delicious. This is not an actual sit down... More

Came here 2 yrs ago and had the best crepes ever. Came back and still the same, perfect! The 2nd day we tried somewhere else. Nowhere near as good as Rene's. Only downside is that the girl serving us was not very friendly at all. Very stern looking. But hey, she made a good crepe and it's not a restaurant... More

Every time I visit Amsterdam I make sure I stop off here! Beautiful pastry shop open until late serving savoury and sweet home made delights. Nicest cakes I've ever had! You must visit!

The best part about this spot is that it is open till really late, so if you feel like having something sweet after dinner but your are too full you can wait a while because Rene's is open up until 2 or 3 am! They have the BEST churros and crepes in town! and if you love nutella, they will... More

Fresh, hot and filled with powdered sugar. I love the churros at this place. They had other options like chocolate and caramel but I went for the sugar twice. ;) i'm pretty sure there are other dessert options are just as good but I was strictly there for a churros visit. Go get 'em 👍

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.
