The In de Waag is hard to miss if you're wandering around Amsterdam, it stands out around corners and across canals as one of the most interesting buildings there is to see. It sits like a mini castle, or large manor house in the centre of town, and it well worth a look. The inside is very well done, with the excellent atmosphere that comes of a place that knows how to do it well. The pleasant hum of happy customers enjoying the conversation and food buzzes across the rafters, and the candle lit evening meals make for a nice time, no matter what your budget or choice of food.The food isn't cheap, though also not overly expensive for those not on an extremely tight budget, and offers an interesting variety of Dutch cuisine and local favourites. If you are on a tight budget, however, as I was, it is still well worth a stop into In de Waag to check out the ambiance of the quiet Dutch restaurant and some of their brilliant and interesting (as well as very cheap) starters. If you go, (whether for a full on feast or a quick sample) try the mustard soup. It's unlike anything I've had before and was a nice cheap meal that wasn't from McDonald's.
