Café In de Waag History

Restaurant-Café In de Waag is located in an old city gate, called St. Anthony's Gate, in the center of the bustling "Nieuwmarkt" in the historic center of Amsterdam. This distinctive monument was built between 1425-1488, and functioned as the city gate and later as the "Waag".  

Illuminated by 300 real candles, this building exudes a unique evocative atmosphere: once you walk through its doors you can feel the warmth and rich history of this building.  

In addition to its restaurant function, there are also unique meeting rooms for your private meetings or dinners. An inspiring space with a beautiful view of the "Nieuwmarkt".  

Open daily from 9am, it is the perfect place to relax for breakfast or a cup of coffee to start your day off right.

In de Waag is designed to accommodate both individual diners and small groups, as well as large groups for lunches, dinners, meetings and drinks.

On top of that In de Waag has been named as an official wedding venue since September 2010. In the middle of the Nieuwmarkt you can get married in an intimate and private setting. The wedding ceremony can take place in one of the cozy rooms, and the wedding can be closed with a festive cake and sparkling bubbles.
