Stumbled across this little place and were quickly seated and served. We ordered cheesy garlic bread, pizza and a pasta and they were absolutely delicious !! We even received a 10% discount card. Friendly staff would definitely recommend :-)

Went here for breakfast, however, after waiting 25 minutes for it to arrive it was cold. On asking if it could be heated, it was taken away and returned a few minutes later colder than the first time! On complaining again, the manager came back shouting at me to tell him what was cold as he had taken the bacon... More

Disinterested staff and bland food. Worst place I've eaten in Amsterdam. Would have been better going to a food vending machine.

Stumbled across this restaurant while walking round Amsterdam, we had a lovely meal at Marco Polo. The service was fast and the staff were lovely, they couldn't do enough for you. I had Garlic Bread and Pizza and it was delicious. I'm currently planning my second trip to Amsterdam and I will definitely be returning to Marco Polo.

We came here for breakfast and chose a table outside. There was plenty to chose from on the menu at reasonable prices. I had a vegetarian breakfast and hubby had the full English breakfast. Both meals were awful, lukewarm, service was very slow and we know now why the prices were reasonable. Full English breakfast bacon very fatty and sausages... More

Not sure what to make of this place, such a mixed experience. Wife had pasta with chicken and mushrooms which was gorgeous and the cheesy garlic bread was awesome. But the steak. Claimed it was fillet but not convinced, never had fillet you struggle to cut before. And it wasn't seasoned! What?!? Waiter said this was in case customers had... More

We came here very late one evening as our flight was delayed but they were very accommodating and happy to have us, the food was excellent! I personally had the pizza which was the best ever! It was massive, you can easily share a normal sized pizza. Yes it was a little pricy but everything is in the centre of... More

We popped in for breakfast and it was well cooked and great value. The bill came to 36.25 Euros. I handed over a 100 Euro note and noticed when the waitress returned that I have been short changed by 10 Euro. I challenged this, she made out that she had forgotten how to speak English, so I challenged the manger.... More

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
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.
