I’ve never had a steak this good. Medium absolutely on point!!! I got it with fries but to be honest, the steak is all you need. You wouldn’t need sides :-)

They’ve got lovely steaks, I'd recommend the surf and turf because the prawns are also perfect. The French onion soup is a must have especially in his chilly weather. Service for the main course was a tad bit slow but I can understand since it...More

Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the
Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get
lost in a moody meander and a key component to any

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.
