Came here on our first night in Amsterdam. The food was alright, the burger was good the chips had a strange sweet taste to them. The staff were friendly enough. The price was about reasonable. I would not want to put anyone off visiting here, but I probably wouldn't really recommend it either.

We didn't eat here, just had drinks; but it's a great place to sit and watch the world go by, just past the seedy parts of Amsterdam so it's nice.

One of the many restaurants lining Nieuwmarkt square. They serve american style burgers on soft large sesame seed buns easily squeezed flat to fit into your mouth instead of the european style burger requiring a knife and fork to eat it with. They also have draft and bottled beer as well as an assortment of alcoholic drinks.

The food was ok, but if you would just keep walking about five more minutes, you can do better. This happened to be close to our hotel and we were tired, so we didn't put in the effort to find quality food in the area. Service was great though, and sitting outside made for great people watching.

We came here as a group one evening for drinks. We sat outside people watching and were served in quick time. Drinks were reasonably priced for the area.

My husband and I ate here when first arriving in Amsterdam after a long journey from Cornwall. We were absolutely hank marvin and chose this place as it had a table free and was in a nice location.

Small burger place between cafes. Good burgers (bacon and blue cheese) and fried fish. French fries are large chips (topped ours with cheese). Fried cheese starter was really good. Drinks we had rose beer and strawberry milkshake. Good food for quick lunch.

My wife, daughter and I ate at the Downtown American Diner recently. My wife and I had their black angus burger. My daughter had their chicken sandwich. We also ordered a side of fries. The burgers and chicken were tasty, as were the fries. I thought the sodas were a little over priced, and they charged for condiments. A single... 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.
