How far from Dam Square is your outer radius, and what type of food do you prefer? Then we can give better suggestions.

Brasserie Harkema or Mappa on Nes about 5 minutes from the Dam could work. But as juejosh said we need more details and you shouldn't limit yourself to the immediate Dam area.

Start of in Bubbles and Wine on Nes. Agree about Harkema. It's large enough to swallow 20 ladies. They can seat you all at one table.

If you want steak then Cau. Chinese, try the Oriental City upstairs from the Golden Chopsticks.

Bar Italia is quite cool.

On the Nieuwmarkt In de Waag.

Is there a reason for needing to be so close to Dam Square.

We dont get to our hotel. The citadel until 8 pm. We only want a short walk and Dam square seems very central. We are not fussy as to cuisine, location and venue are better for us.

I agree about Bubbles and Wine - had a lovely evening, and several flights of wine, last week, it would be a really good place for a group of ladies to start - or end - their evening, but book in advance.

In de Waag would be a good choice for a meal, they also have a balcony room that may be fun; also near the hotel is Van Speyk - had 2 lovely meals there last week, but again, book early to be able to seat 20.

If you go to De Waag, or a chinese in the direction of Zeedijk, very close is Sake, a cocktail bar that is also fun and one of our favourites.

Have fun!

With 20 you should perhaps reserve ahead of time. We like Oriental City. Chinese food. Walk to Dam from CS, take left at Monument in front of Krasnopolsky Hotel, it is the next block.
