Staff were incredible, food was amazing, and the view of the square just brought it all together. Although it's a bit on the pricey side it was definitely worth it!

Meat was great, staff was friendly, dessert was perfect. Vanilla ice cream with chocolate sauce, it is a must, if you come here.

We had rids and they were excellent. Fries weren't that good - probably prefried. Salad and beef sate also very good! Service was also fine for us but the people on the next table complained that they'd been waiting for one hour for their order...More

Great food and drink reasonable prices in the area of Rembrandt Square. We had different types of steaks on our visits and were not disappointed after being recommended by friends. A good staff team looks after customers in a swift but not pushy manner. It...More

Waited for 1.30 with a baby for old meat to be served. A serving girl brought coffee in a broken glass and just spilt it to another glass (didn't make new).

Restaurant De Nachtwacht is situated on the corner of Thorbecke square and Rembrandt square. From our closed veranda you have a fantastic view on one of Amsterdam’s most lively squares: the Rembrandt square.
It is also possible to taste the 70´s and 80´s retro atmosphere at one of the lounge tables or at the bar, both figuratively (the atmosphere of our restaurant) as literally the scent and taste of our steaks on the charcoal grill.

For the best steaks you are at the right place. Our butcher from the eastside of the country preserves the high quality of the meat he delivers and our cooks prepare your steak the way you prefer.
