De Nachtwacht / This restaurant has great meat dishes and for everyone there is something to love! All the main dishes are different kind of steaks. Look on their website for the menu. Especially knowing that the animals had quite a good life comparing to others. 50% tourist and 50% locals because they love this place. And it is called after the famous painting from Rembrandt.
At the end of 2011 Restaurant De Nachtwacht started a new concept that lays focus on better life conditions for the cattle they get their meat from. To them this means that they mostly buy their meat by Dutch farmers. What’s also very important to them, is that the calves are brought up without any growth stimulants.. What is worth mentioning as well is that the calves matures an average of six months longer on the estate. The slower ripening benefits the flavor and tenderness of this pure meat.

They also serve exquisite meats, fish and even vegetarian dishes from the barbecue. But it gets even better. At Julius Bar & Grill they have a large dry-age cabinet. Here they mature amazing pieces of meat. Choose your own piece and their grill masters will grill it to perfection for you.
For them barbecuing is so much more than just grilling a piece of meat. They also grill fish and vegetables.

All dishes are incredibly rich in flavor but the icing on the cake are perhaps Julius Jaspers ‘homemade’ barbecue sauces.

Braai / In South Africa, a Braai is known as a social meeting, where food is prepared on open fire. In Amsterdam, Braai is a place to meet, to talk and to enjoy the good things in life. Friends and invites are more than welcome and most people bring something to eat. But the main principles from ancient times are still the same; gathering around the fire, chatting and telling stories. Once you’ve experienced a real Braai, you will never forget.
These are the principles and values they want to express in their venues. Spending time with friends and family, enjoy good food, cold drinks and local goods.
They don’t have a typical South African kitchen; They use braai, barbecue and grilling techniques from all over the world in their dishes.
They live by the saying; eat together, serve yourself. This means they don’t do table service. What?! Yes, you order at the bar and pick up the food when it’s comes just of the barbecue. Simple, easy and affordable. Let Braai be your backyard and find out for yourself.
