Honestly I had just enough of the fast food so I decided to go a bit healthy and I have no regrets! The Service was fast and great and its in the heart of Dam Square! The Salmon was very fresh and probably one of the best tasting I've ever had!

The plaza is filled with young people and a memorial to the fallen of WWII (however, the statute is odd and we needed to read a review of it to understand what it was. Two sides of the plaza are lined with restaurants. While we were there, there was construction on a large part of the plaza. So maybe without... More

Ordered a 3 type fish platter and a tomato soup. The soup was too spicy and the fish lacked seasoning and flavor. The waiter was a rude guy while the waitress were sweet and charming. Waited more than 20 mins for my order to arrive, when asked the waiter rudely remarked that it will come soon. There was a party... More

For people watching nothing beats this place! Massive crowds in the square and the outdoor cafes nearby. Does anyone work in Amsterdam? They are all at cafes. All signs are in English so it is a very easy city to visit for English speaking tourists.

Our visit here, was not one who made a lasting impression. The location is good, right next to the Dam, and it has a nice interior. Once inside, we were seated right next to the entrance. As the restaurent was less then half we asked for a new table, which seemed to annoy our waitress who just gestured towards the... More

Was at the Dam Plaza with my boyfriend and another couple. I had Tagliatelle a la Putanesca, my boyfriend spaghetti bolognese and the other couple both had a Wiener Schnitzel. I was completely disgusted! 11,75€ for a portion of Tagliatelle that tasted like nothing, the "fresh" vegetables shouldn't be allowed to be entitled as vegetables and were nothing near fresh....

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. Thank you Nora for your... More

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
