“Good coffee, a really good late breakfast, great people watching spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

We wanted to be sure we knew where we needed to be for our Lindberg tour, at 26 Damrak, before we ate that morning. As we passed, one of the restaurant employees was encouraging people to look at the menu. It was just what we were looking for. The coffee was good, and the breakfast very satisfying. Prices were reasonable, and the employees friendly. We enjoyed watching the constant stream of travelers and other tourists on the sidewalk, since it is close to the Central Station. This restaurant is also called Pizzeria Marco Polo, btw. I definitely would go back to this restaurant fo another meal.

“Rude cashier”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Went there with friends for lunch. Food was good and service was ok. When we went to pay the bill we were dividing it amongst us, when the cashier tried to pull the money from my hand and i told him we were not finished from dividing the bill. He moaned that he was busy and tried to take money out of my hands. This is unacceptable behaviour!!! The only reason I am giving this place 2 star and not one star is that the food was good and that it was one person who ruined the experience at the end.

“Great food, friendly service and a good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

This was the first restaurant we visited in Amsterdam and it set the bar very high for the rest of our trip. The staff were friendly and efficient and struck the rare balance of being attentive without bothering or interrupting us. My husband had Penne Carbonara and I had the gnocchi which was one of their specials. The food was served promptly - it was hot, fresh and delicious. We felt the restaurant offered good value for money, especially considering its location and when compared with other restaurants in the area.
