  • I was at a lunch organized by my company, with a menu that consisted of starter, main and dessert. Everything was good, the meat was typical here a kind of hamburger without bread made with stew meat, not the q I understood from my translation of the menu but was good. The brownie ice cream the best. Service slow but consistent with our opportunity to enjoy the site.

  • This fortress located in the city centre was once the gateway to Amsterdam, then turned into a weighing. It currently houses a restaurant. Nice building, especially at night with the lights

  • Located in a beautiful building on the Nieuwmarkt square, in the building where managed to preserve many elements from the old equipment and décor, food excellent, tasty and artistically presented. A real culinary feast.

  • Great location for a coffee , lunch or dinner. Friendly staff en good hot coffee or latte. But the ambiance is what is the best. All the real candles they light. It must be hundreds of them. If you are a tourist it is a must to visit the Waag where Rembrandt painted. If you are a local like me from Amsterdam it is still great to visit.
  • Cozy bar and a restaurant in an picturesque historical building from 15th-century, which was a part of the GATE to Amsterdam placed in the middle of the New Market Square, surrounded by many bars and restaurants. It is one of those must see places in Amsterdam. Weight House is the oldest remaining non-religious buildings in Amsterdam. In the past it has also served as a guildhall, museum, fire station and anatomical theater, among others. Today is a cafe together with a restaurant. Staff is friendly and atmosphere is very cozy especially if you are seated upstairs.
  • Beautiful part of Dutch history, older than the USA. This is our view of DeWaag from Cafe Stevens.
  • The building is clearly outstanding in terms of its history , the restaurant is not, the food is quite mediocre and expensive for what you get. The main dishes were served cold after almost an hour waiting. Venison and the fish were savourless - not an enjoyable dinner
  • This historic building was once part of the city gates. Now, a market spread around it and the road runs around it. It makes a good stop on any walking tour of the city. Cool spot in Amsterdam.
