Only had breakfast there 2 mornings, which had a broad choice of breakfast items from cereal, omelettes and good old eggs on toast that had melted cheese over the top.

We were walking around Amsterdam looking for a place to have dinner, then we walked past this place and looked through the windows. It was packed so we knew there was good food. We managed to get a reservation for an hour later and came back to eat. Food was delicious! We ordered a great wine recommended by the waitress... More

My boyfriend and I went to the Lobby on a Saturday night. The dining room was lovely, with candles lit everywhere and dim lighting which created a fantastic ambience. We decided to go for the three course meal for 39.50 Euros each. Which, after having eaten this food, is exceptional value for money. I am a vegetarian, and although there... More

The setting of the restaurant is spacious and allows for adequate privacy. Staff is very friendly. Portions are telative small for a 3 course dinner. So an offering of fries... More

We originally had booked for dinner on the Saturday night of our visit but head read a TA review saying it had mice so we decided to cancel the dinner reservation and ended up stumbling across it on the Friday evening for drinks. As we were just drinking wine we didn't think anything of it and enjoyed the dimly lit... More

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighbourhood Profile
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 Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
