Lovely old building with pretty mosaics on the walls, though some of the cheesy pop music clashed a little. The food was nice and portions filling (good chips too), but frankly overpriced - the cappuccino and sandwich offerings were average at best, and they'll charge you 19 euros for a burger that's nothing too special.

Located in a Berlage building (the Beurs is the Dutch stock market), the Grand Cafe is ideally situated right off Dam Square near many major bus/tram routes, next to the Beijnkorf (high-end department store) and is a step above most of the restaurants in this touristy area. In nice weather you can sit outside at the top of the steps,... More

We had just been to the Body Works and fancied a ditch down to give our weary feet a rest. The square looked a great place to people watch and we sat on chairs provided with a cushion and even a blanket for warmth. We chose a Sauvignon wine and a rose beer and enjoyed it so much we decided... More

We always eat at your restaurant but not now, we had visitors with us and told them how good the restaurant was, but to see mice running about was not excepted by us , and the 6 people next to us left, this is not good for Amsterdam restaurants

We first discovered the delightful square outside Beurs van Berlage when I visited the Bodyworlds exhibition opposite on Damrak. Hubby didn't want to see Bodyworlds, so we agreed to meet back there for drinks in an hour or so's time. We enjoyed a gin and tonic and a beer, discussed the exhibition I'd just seen, and watched the world go... More

Only sat down to have a beverage off the highways and byways of the hectic Amsterdam streets and really enjoyed the vibe and hospitality. Unobtrusive and yet attentive! Nice to sit by the windows overlooking the busy Damrak street.

Served by the manager who advise not to order side dishes with our croquets that we had ordered. Inside and outside dinning areas ,great meals freshly prepare as there was a little wait for them to come to the table, piping hot and delicious, also great coffee , teas and of course hot chocolate, reasonable prices.

Walking tour of the city and luckily stumbled into this lovely restaurant. In late April the weather raw making the warm atmosphere even more inviting. Ordered warm tomato soup and a "typical" cheese plate for two. If you believe you eat with your eyes, it was beautifully delicious. The cheese plate was five cheeses, nuts, dried fruit, bread, butter and... More

The first impression of this place is great - beautiful building, inside and out. Great atmosphere on a sunny day with people sitting outside. Didn't get served for ages - there seemed to be only 3 wait staff for the whole place. My friend ordered a drink and wanted to change her order but wasn't allowed to as the order... More

This restaurant was once the old stock exchange.Situated at the far end of the large red brick building opposite the Central Station in Amsterdam.Had a wonderful table overlooking the square, in the warm suntrap at the top of a flight of steps.Our waiter was attentive, cordial and efficient. After one ice cold beer, ordered the Hamburger (not cheap at 14.75 Euros) although it came with fires (piping hot) crispy bacon and cheese.You have got to have one of these. The burger was great minced beef was delicious, about 1 inch thick and perfectly cooked. The juices from the meat oozed out as you took each bite. It was one of, if not the best burger I have ever eaten. A totally enjoyable experience as you watch the world world go by. Try it you won't be disappointed.

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.
