We were looking for a restaurant where we could sit outside and experience the evening in Amsterdam and we got the jackpot. Right next to Dam Square. Wood fired pizza and all fresh ingredients. Chef delivered the food! €18.50 for a glass of wine, wood fired oven pizza and a salad - special they had on. My pizza was 4 cheese, arugula, walnuts and pear... beautiful combination. High end in comparison to the take aways all over the downtown. Bruschetta was delightful. Service was a bit slow but it was busy and we rather enjoyed not rushing. Bathrooms were very clean, which was a great bonus. Worth the money, you got a real meal not takeout.

We came from Leiden to Amsterdam for the afternoon and after wandering through backstreets for a while, came out into the main street and saw this place. It was shaded, we needed feeding so we opted to eat here. It was very busy but the waiter found us a nice table outside - we ordered bitterballen and it and arrived pretty quickly. We sat eating those and people watching. It was a really nice place to spend time and watch the world go by. Super friendly staff too. I'd eat here again - good bitterballen.

Located at the dam square, this bakery / coffee shop offers a delicious choice pastries from croissant, donuts, Belgian waffles, cookies... and selection of coffee... you can enjoy having either at the coffee shop itself outdoor and indoor seating available or take them on the go!
Either way you want be disappointed!

This is the Swissotel' restaurant. Only opened recently the breakfast (at 18 euros per person per day) is a joke. Repetitive each day, often running out of food and dishes around closing at 10am. Coffee mugs and bowels were often missing and had to be asked for. Dinner here one night resulted in us leaving after 15 minutes of waiting with no one even giving us a menu. Eat elsewhere.
