Fodor's Expert Review Restaurant-Café In de Waag

$$ Nieuwmarkt International

The lofty wood-beam interior of the 15th-century Waag (weigh house), converted into a 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 North Sea shrimp and steak tartare, while you can't go wrong with entrées like rib-eye of Dutch beef. Breakfast is served starting at 9 am, and lunch items include salads and sandwiches.
