  • We had to wait for such a long queue but it was worth it. The service is a bit slow but still, the food was super tasty!  more »
  • Great market and great terrace to pause. Had a fun place in shade and there our next planned villages. Good wine and delicious food. Only our waiter had a bad day I guess, really had to wave several times to order and was not so friendly. We have not to our hearts.

  • I went with Family dinner. Soon on arrival felt a tense atmosphere. No one received, just after a few minutes. Every hour came a waiter or waitress different meet. They were all in a reserved in the background talking animatedly. Every time we needed we had to scroll to call them. One was eating crouched behind the counter, another took a desk that customers had gone a dessert and squatting too, but in front of everyone, ate. To quit also. It took a long and rather than bring us the change, they talk. I had to ask for the change to go. Very bad, unpleasant environment, just take a picture of the outside and go eat somewhere else. The food is reasonable and the portions are small.

  • 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.
  • Beautiful building in the middle of the "New Market" Square. Surrounded by bars and restaurants, really near from the most colorful part of the city.
  • Historic old building that served a variety of different functions throughout its existence, but started out as a gatehouse. Located in a nice square that often features a local farmers market.
  • Weigh House or The Waag is the oldest remaining non-religious building in Amsterdam. This 15th-century building on Nieuwmarkt square in Amsterdam has also served as a guildhall, museum, fire station and anatomical theater, among others. One can enjoy the flee market, the surrounding or the cafe in building.
  • Picturesque historical building.
