This is by far the most disgusting place I have ever eaten. The vegetables looked like they were from 1994, and the burger was as dry as Sahara. Don't go!

We dined at Dam Plaza on New Year's eve, before heading to the party. They serve delicious steaks, which I ordered. The place was very crowded that night, but without reservations, this was the best place we could find, and it was up to our expectations

Very nice tasty pizza on the dam. Go for the pepperoni and onions, tastes real good with some of that local beer in Amsterdam.

Its a very popular place due to the location. The food and service could vary. had some decent experience and not so good experience at the same place. The place is always busy though due to its location.

Excellent service - very good food with lots of choice. The only negative was that we had to ask for a key to use the toilet. It is understanding to why - to avoid all using their facilities. Apart from this - very good experience.

Just a typical square with lots of open space. A Christmas tree was put up for the holidays, with minimal decorations. The palace is on one side of the square, as is a church, but both are fairly non-descript. Central location to reach a number of attractions.

Been here for a beer (evening), coffee (morning), lunch an other day. Service was always horrible in every possible way. Location ok for a drink outside. If you plan staying alive, NEVER EAT HERE! We ordered salad, fish plate with vegetables and pasta. Waited 50 minutes for what they call "food" We were 3 people eating, TWO OF US THREW... More

We had lunch there last week and it was -in one word- awful The food is positively disgusting, oily, reheated and of extreme low quality. The service is slow and unfriendly. In short an experience never to be repeated. It is a pity as the location is excellent.
