“Love this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

Wow I love this place, I always go for the area at the back that overlooks the canal, it's a perfect place on the weekend to relax with a paper and unwind...

But I usually get the pizza or the burger as the steak can be hit and miss as it was last weekend when we went for lunch, my steak looked like it had been cooked in the microwave. I ate it because I was hungry but wasn't that impressed, we were in a hurry so left but next time I'll avoid the steak.

Such as shame but still good food and great location and somewhere I usually take friends when they visit Amsterdam for some Bitterballen and some beers.

“Good location + pizza ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

Nicely situated place with small tables on the sidewalk. Great for watching locals zip by on their bicycles and centrally located with other great eateries to make for an energetic part of town. Margarita pizza was overall pretty solid- a bit peppery, but had fresh spoonfuls of mozzarella cheese.

“poor service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

At first service was prompt and ordered quickly. After drinks arrived was told one meal wasn't available. Agreed to share the pizza and have a side dish of chips. After 20 mins the food hadn't arrived and had no further info. People who arrived after us had there food before us. Was given the chips after half an hour and asked where the pizza was. Only then we were told the chief had gone home and turned the oven off and there was no more food. The table next to us told us they had the wrong pizza, which turned out to be ours and they had arrived after us. The waiter let us have the drinks and chips for free as an apology but I'm sure it was only as we kept asking for our food, but was not given a real apology. Ruined a first night in Amsterdam, after travelling a long way and no romantic meal with the girlfriend as promised....

“Fun place to eat and drink”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

On a girlie trip for 3 days - first time in Amsterdam and we found Dante's around the corner from our Hotel on Spuistraat. It's pretty central. The atmosphere was what attracted us and the amazing array of shelves behind the bar reaching to the high ceiling, filled with hundreds of bottles of wine and spirits. We had drinks and a lovely sharing platter and thought it was good value. A great way to start our break in Amsterdam.
