Blauw aan de Wal

European in Medieval Centre & Red Light District

Refined Blauw aan de Wal is a rose among thorns. A long, often-graffiti-covered laneway off Oudezijds Achterburgwal 99 in the middle of the Red Light District leads to this 17th-century former herb warehouse where the whitewashed, exposed-brick, multilevel space features old steel weights, and tables fill the romantic garden in summer. Seasonally changing menus are artistically presented; service is first rate.
