Because of the great weather we decided to sit outside and it was nice chilly but the drinks are very expensive. Coffee very small. Well, we can tick it off our list.

Only good thing about this place is you can smoke inside (but that's not uncommon in dam) apart from that it's not great, staff aren't particularly friendly, we had a breakfast which had enough food on the plate to fill up a small child. Food...More

A group of girls so we sat outside watching the cruise boats go by. Service was excellent. You do have to pay 50 cents for the loo but they were really nice and very clean.

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
