Came here on a recommendation, wish we hadn't bothered. Waitress was the most useless waitress ever met. We ordered a Angus burger and a Jack Daniels burger and a side of fries. Burgers took ages to come and I noticed that both looked the same....More

It took ages for the food to come, the waiter/ waitress (we had both) were very unfriendly, they didn't smile once. We both had the burger, it was huge! It wasn't awful but it wasn't good. We both left quite a bit of the meal...More

My boyfriend and I visited Downtown on a number of occasions whilst visiting Amsterdam for 4 days. We even referred to it as our "local". The prices of alcoholic drinks were incredibly reasonable, and the 300g burger was amazing, and so tasty. The thing that...More

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
