Be ready to wait at Blauw aan the wal

Tucked in the Red Light district this place is located in a Golden Century spicehouse, the 15th Century Bethaniënklooster, one of the few buildings in Amsterdam that are still left over from the Middle Ages. Authentic details are the original wooden beams, brick and wood floor on our top floor. It features a fixed, local produce menu and  a fashionable clientele. The food is good but the service is really really slow. we go there on a second dinning round at 20, we finish at 23, we wait too much and as a consequence we drink too much, and we pay too much. Shame as the place is nice, but we will not be back. Interestingly, there is another Blauw restaurant in Amsterdam but apparently the two are not connected (or should I say, I could not find any evidence of a connection).

Address: Oudezijds Achterburgwal 99
