Whenever I saw a bit of sun while I was living in Amsterdam I always went to Waterkant. It has an amazing location and I loved chilling there after work or on the weekends with friends. Their super nachos is just amazing. They don’t offer...More

I've been twice to Waterkant and both have been brilliant. At night the music is great, the bar isn't too packed and if it's not too cold it's lovely to sit right by the water. The second time I went was about an hour before...More

Created from an otherwise abandoned space below a car park, next to a canal, and made from recycled shipping containers, Waterkant is, visually at least, not a typical restaurant. It's also self-service, you have to go and fetch both your food and your drinks yourself,...More

I have visited Waterkant a few times and have always enjoyed my visits. However my visit on 4/20 was my last. Took over 1 hr for them to serve nachos on my table. Just simple nachos. At some point we were told to leave the...More

Weren't too sure we were at the right place initially because of the angle we approached from, but so glad we didn't turn around. Beautiful location by the canal (sit outside!), delicious food (loved the rendang) and chill vibe! One of the places we would...More

One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and
some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two
of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll
through this especially convivial warren of narrow
streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and
quality galleries. Historically a haven for the
working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is
better known as an enclave for artists and designers.
