Good meal but unfriendly staff

We ate here during our stay in Amsterdam. That was a sudden decision and because of the meals it was totally worth it. The atmosphere of the restaurant was also good, but the service! Guys, why do you earn your money as a waiter/waitress if you don't like people? The only one exception was Nora... read more

Don't be sucked in by the bad reviews on this place. Me and my friend went and we had a lovely meal which was brought out in no time. Piping hot and tasted wonderful. I got fish and chips and my friend got the burger and chips, we also got a side of garlic bread that was full of flavour.... More

Me and my partner went to this resturant on the way back from dams square, it looked nice from the outside. The service was very standoffish and the staff didn't go out their way to exceed my expectations. We both ordered a pasta dish which was very big standard but ok, we also had two cokes which when I checked... More

Although not terrible, this restaurant failed to deliver. My wife and I both started with the onion soup. It was the most curious and tasteless onion soup I have ever had. My wife ordered the veal which comes as cubes of veal in a white sauce; her response is "it was alright". I had the "Argentinian T-bone steak". I'm pretty... More

There's always something going on and the cafes are great to sit and people watch.As usual you pay a bit more for food and drink but it's worth it.

My girlfriend and I were looking for somewhere to grab a quick breakfast before our flight and since Restaurant Dam Plaza was located close to our hotel we decided to give it a go. We both ordered pancakes which looked like they'd come straight out of a packet and were served cold. The decor was tacky and the service was... More

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.
