This is just my sort of place to eat, there is nothing quite like it in the local surrounding area all these other little places are rubbish and charge an extortionist amount of money, when you go here you know it will be good food, which is what I care about more then prices. I had the turf and surf,... More

We dined here on our second night in Amsterdam. There's so many places to choose from but I had read the reviews and seen the pics and I'm so glad we choose here. It's very cosy and romantic with a lovely view of Rembrandt square. I had the prawns pil pil to start and they were so delicious. Serviced with... More

Went there for dinner last evening with my husband. He had the snails as a starter and it had a funny aftertaste. My fried mussels were average. The filet steaks were cooked well and the potatoes were yummy, but there was too much sauce on them. 85E for these items including 2 bottles of water. Just average service. I've had... More

This restaurant was close to my hotel and recommended. Given its popularity, I arrived early and still had to it at the bar. The good news is that the chairs at the bar are comfy. I came here because of the ribs and I was not dissapointed. They were wonderful! They were perfectly cooked and the serve was so large... More

On vacation with our family, De Nachtwacht was the place to go for 'real food'. Hungry and ready for a solid meat and potatoes meal, De Nachtwacht was the place to go. We had ribs and mixed grill and it was great. Ask for Amber for great service too. Really pleasant atmosphere. Plenty of steak joints in Amsterdam but this... More

Stumbled upon this place, and without reservation they found us a table. Nice place with good atmosphere inside. Steak was really nice but the ribs were unbelievably good! Superlatives do not do them justice.

What a lovely place. Didn't reserve (should have because it's very popular), but the staff found us a seat at the bar. The staff are friendly and the steaks are cooked to absolute perfection. Presentation of everything is perfect, even down to sugar packets on the coffee saucer. I can't recommend this place enough and will definitely be returning for... More

The atmosphere and the service is really good and classy. I've only had the chance in my last day in Amsterdam to try only the ribs. They are really the best I've ever ate. But, because of the ribs, I really think that anything you eat in this restaurant should be same quality. I highly recommend them to any of... More

The food at this restaurant was excellent. Fillet steak was superb as were all of the side dishes. The restaurant was full inside so we took a seat outside. It was little cold but there were patio heaters so it was fine. It is obviously popular due to how busy it was as there were plenty of other nearby places... More

Loved this place. Friendly service, excellent quality for a reasonable price, and we enjoyed the view and athmosphere in the city. Both typical and friendly, while unpretentious and relax
