Tucked away inside one of the old Amsterdam city gates is a Dutch eatery: Restaurant Café in de Waag.
This historic establishment serves lunch and dinner. I went there on my last night in the city and ordered the beef stew with risotto, laurel gravy and green beans.
I ordered my meat rare and it came out perfect. This dish was flavorful, hearty, perfectly seasoned and cooked to perfection. I was recommended to Restaurant Café in de Waag by a local and I understand why. It’s a great restaurant to enjoy Dutch cuisine in a historic and sophisticated environment.
