“Good value restaurant near centre (handy for Rijksmuseum)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

Enjoyed a leisurely lunch in here and particularly enjoyed the open sandwiches. I went for the Old Amsterdam Cheese sandwich and my wife chose the BLT- both were delicious and the Belgian Fries were good too. Good Heineken Beer and all at sensible prices-pleasant ambience very laid back!

“Good restaurant, Amsterdam Centrum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

There are many restaurants around the Leidseplein in central Amsterdam competing for your custom. On the Korte Leidsedwarsstraat you are asked what you would like to eat by the promoters outside their establishments half a dozen times in one block. Around the corner on the Kleine Gartmanpalntsoen, overlooking the busy Leidseplein, is the Palladium. Simple proposition: Italian-style menu, not too large, decent wines though not expensive, and prompt service. A glass of merlot, a good seafood pasta with huge prawns in a tasty sauce, well-steamed but still crisp vegetables, a galss of prosecco and a coffee for 35 Euros. I will go again.

“Good food but a little bit too crowded”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

I went there with colleagues, who highly recommended the place. Food was really good - the tuna steak was cooked to perfection. Although the menu is not elaborated, all 3 courses I ordered were prepared very well. The service was also good and quick, given that the place was a little bit overcrowded. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to those who are looking for good quality food in a non-pretentious setting.

“Nice Food, Good restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

1st night in Amsterdam we picked this place as it look busy and it was raining so didn't want to get any wetter. Service was quick and bordering on rushed but not too bad. We went for Steaks which were cooked as we requested. Place was busy with good turnover of tables.

“great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

I loved this place, in fact we ate here twice. The second time was a little disappointing because the bottle of red wine was chilled and had to be sent back our main course arrived without us having had our starters first and my husband's steak also wasn't cooked as requested and needed to be sent back. To be fair the restaurant apologised immediately and rectified these mistakes and continued with good service. The food is excellent and the steaks are wonderful.
