Dining options: Breakfast
Neighbourhood: Red Light District (De Wallen)
Description: "Just moments away from Dam Square, Brasserie de Brakke Grond combines historic elements with a laid back contemporary ambience. No wonder that this is one of Amsterdam’s most favoured spots, day or night. The classic interior, with its sophisticated dark wood and black leather seating, green painted wood panelling and chrome beer taps plus tongue in cheek fireplace TV makes for a warm welcome any time of year. When the sun breaks out take a seat on the terrace to enjoy a cold beer or light meal. The seasonally changing menu is a delight giving diners a taste of Belgium right here in the Netherlands. Vegetarians are treated to imaginative specialities while meat and fish dishes are a joy. And don’t miss those waffles… "

Displays first night in Amsterdam, weary of travel, we arrived by chance to this restaurant that was close to our hotel for the purpose of a quick dinner and a formality before going to bed.
But lo and behold: a place with charm, delicious food, warm atmosphere and excellent reception memorable made ​​our first night in Amsterdam. Thank you!

This place is in the city center, yet far from the madding crowd:) set in a quiet cosy square it offers perfect setting to relax and have some great coffee (we didn't eat there). We could also see a free photography exhibition there, really nice one! The staff is very friendly and the atmosphere is kind of 'of bohemian nature'.
A minus would be the smell from the toilet - I guess it's not the only place with this problem, just sit away from WC and it's gonna be fine.

This restaurant was really near our hotel hence our visit but glad we did as it has a really nice relaxed atmosphere and didn't feel at all touristy! Good choice of food (including for me as the some vegetarian in the group!) and the staff were friendly & helpful. Would certainly eat there again

This little restaurant, just a few steps away from the madness that is Dam Square, is a haven. The food is great (especially do not miss the excellent Belgian fries with mayo) and the atmosphere is very cosy. It is a go-to place for many Amsterdam locals when you need to meet in the Centre for a reason. I love the food, ambiance, and reasonable prices and will happily eat here anytime.

This is one of our regular stops for nice Belgian beers and reasonable food. Located just off the tourist hell that is the Dam, things change quickly as you walk just a few meters off down the Nes. The value here is good, the selection of beers is wide and the service friendly. Worth a stop if you're in the area.
