At first service was prompt and ordered quickly. After drinks arrived was told one meal wasn't available. Agreed to share the pizza and have a side dish of chips. After 20 mins the food hadn't arrived and had no further info. People who arrived after us had there food before us. Was given the chips after half an hour and asked where the pizza was. Only then we were told the chief had gone home and turned the oven off and there was no more food. The table next to us told us they had the wrong pizza, which turned out to be ours and they had arrived after us. The waiter let us have the drinks and chips for free as an apology but I'm sure it was only as we kept asking for our food, but was not given a real apology. Ruined a first night in Amsterdam, after travelling a long way and no romantic meal with the girlfriend as promised....

On a girlie trip for 3 days - first time in Amsterdam and we found Dante's around the corner from our Hotel on Spuistraat. It's pretty central. The atmosphere was what attracted us and the amazing array of shelves behind the bar reaching to the high ceiling, filled with hundreds of bottles of wine and spirits. We had drinks and a lovely sharing platter and thought it was good value. A great way to start our break in Amsterdam.

The food was good as far as flavor is concerned. And the atmosphere was not bad considering the price point and that we went for a late dinner.

Luckily we had time on our hands, but service was indeed slow. Real slow. And not just the waitress. In fact, the waitress was responsive to requests for service - but we had to flag her down several times.

The kitchen was really slow producing the meals... Once they were "up", the waitress was prompt in serving them, however.

In summary, this place was close to our hotel and was serving meals late. It served its purpose. And we had time on our hands, so we did not mind slow service, both on the part of the waitress but more so on the part of the kitchen. Once the food arrived, however, it was good eating.

Would not go back if time is a factor. But for a decent late-night dinner, one could do worse.

Food was the best we have had so far in Amsterdam although it was the service that let this lovely place down. Waiting staff seemed rude. A round of drinks did not arrive although they tried to charge us for them. However this said the food was the best we have had this trip even though we had to wait awhile for it.
