Delicious ribs with bbq sauce. One portion with fries is enough for two women. We were totally full. Inside nothing special but totally recommend for a good grill food. 4,5 stars 😍

shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the
Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the
Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get

Restaurant De Nachtwacht is situated on the corner of Thorbecke square and Rembrandt square. From our closed veranda you have a fantastic view on one of Amsterdam’s most lively squares: the Rembrandt square. It is also possible to taste the 70´s and 80´s retro atmosphere at one of the lounge tables or at the bar, both figuratively (the atmosphere of our restaurant) as literally the scent and taste of our steaks on the charcoal grill. For the best steaks you are at the right place. Our butcher from the eastside of the country preserves the high quality of the meat he delivers and our cooks prepare your steak the way you prefer.
