Welcome at Cafe De Walvis (The Whale)

De Walvis has been a save haven in the fast growing and working-class Spaandammer district since 2012. A cafe for everyone. De Walvis offers elaborate lunches, dinners and aperitifs in a familiar atmosphere. A well-deserved gin and tonic after work, a specialized beer to close off the weekend or a quick sandwich, De Walvis is ready and open to serve you seven days per week.

Did you know that De Walvis is also a true football fan? We broadcast all Ajax’s matches and those of the Dutch national team on a big screen.

When you have something to celebrate and would like to give a party or would like to go out for dinner with a group of colleagues or friends, De Walvis is open to your questions, suggestions and flexible towards your requirement.
