Fodor's Review

A decade ago, the lofty beamed interior of the 17th-century Waag (weigh house) was converted into a grand café and restaurant and has remained a popular option for many reasons, one being a strict dinner-lighting policy of candles only—from a huge wooden candelabra, no less—that nicely helps maintain the building's medieval majesty. The menu is Mediterranean with Dutch touches, including entrées like the entrecote with fries and Dutch lettuce with walnuts, and the

deep-fried polenta with spinach, smoked ricotta, and chanterelles. The long wooden tables make this an ideal location for larger groups, and if you happen to belong to a party of eight, you should definitely book the spookily evocative tower room. Daytime hunger pangs are also catered to from 11 am on, when you can enjoy a sandwich, a salad, or a snack on the spacious terrace (and you can even breakfast before that, starting at 9 am).
