Lovely friendly natural staff, varied options for breakfast, reasonably priced. Had an omelette here which was extremely tasty. Some of the gang had pancakes which I believe were lovely. Freshly squeezed orange juice. Will go back and will recommend it

Came across this place by chance whilst exploring the Red Light District. Service was superb and the food excellent...had the best crepe Suzette EVER here! The fondue wasn't bad either 😊

Great experience in a very relaxing environment. Service both helpful and friendly. My wife and I shared a fondue and a salad; there was certainly enough for both of us and the total bill was quite reasonable.

We were lucky to get a seat at this restaurant near Centraal station, probably because it was past lunch time. We nestled in a corner and enjoyed a delightful meal and lovely coffee. They serve a wide range of foods and we were given a warm welcome by the staff. We sat inside as it was chilly but outside seating... More

My friend and I walked around for a while until we found this place and we decided to give it a try. We've managed to find a table in the corner. We ordered the Carpaccio with Pesto dressing, Pine Nuts and Parmezan as a starter and then we had the Karbeel fondue as a main. This place is just perfect... More

My mom and I wanted to get some fondue (perfect for a chilly night) and this place was near our hotel and was easy to make reservations online (though you can walk in fairly easily I think). We shared the traditional fondue (comes with bread cubes) and had the small sirloin steak and gambas (large shrimp) as our entrees. It... 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.
