Bang in the middle of vibrant Nieuwmarkt, the historic Waag buzzes day and night; its outdoor cafe is filled to bursting all afternoon and serves a decent, if unremarkable daytime menu of soups, sandwiches, and salads. Late-night snacks of bitterballen and platters of Dutch cheeses and meats soak up any surfeits of alcohol. The restaurant inside the Waag is made for romance, with a candlelit dining room and long trestle tables ideally suited to one of Amsterdam’s oldest buildings. The evening menu is short but solidly tasty, offering mostly steak and fish; a dinner deal of three courses runs 39.75€.
