In de Waag

$$$ Nieuwmarkt International Fodor's Choice

Fodor’s Expert Review

The lofty wood-beam interior of the 17th-century Waag (weigh house), converted into a grand café and restaurant, is lighted by hundreds of candles that nicely help maintain the building's medieval majesty. The seasonal, international menu uses mainly Dutch (and mainly organic) products, and a spacious terrace is open when the weather permits. Appetizers will likely include Dutch shrimp and steak tartare, while you can't go wrong with entrées like tenderloin of Dutch beef. Breakfast is served starting at 9 am, and lunch items include salads and sandwiches.
