This restaurant is very near Dam Square, hence the name. We were attracted by the Lunch Menu (about Euro11) shown at the front window, which offered either the pork ribs or steak.

The interior is quite small hence, cannot accomodate a big parties as seen in most of the restaurants around Dam Square. We tried the steak and the pork ribs (which comes with a side salad and chips) and sauce (4 types) is charged separately. If you wish not to pay for the sauce, I suggest to order ribs as it is quite well marinated, hence no sauce is required and the steak tends to be quite dry.

The pork ribs wins hands down compared to the steak, though Argentina are famous for their steaks. The reason that there are alot of Argentina's restaurants around AMS is probably due to the fact the current Queen is an Argentinian, we were told!

Tip: Once inside, the waiter will show you their ala carte menu, just make sure you remind them of the lunch menu, as the prices on the ala carte menu is quite inflated.

We were in Amsterdam for a football match. We stayed there 3 days. The 2nd afternoon we chose to go for a steak, and picked the Dam Steak House. There were 6 of us up for an afternoon meal.

We were quickly shown to a table and beers were served quickly. The food came up in good time and was fine. It wasn’t the best steak, but there was no reason to complain – it was fine. The chips were nice, too! We had sweetcorn on the side, but that was a little overcooked. But, again, it was fine.

We’d all go back, so it must have been ok. If you’re at Dam Square, walk out the east side towards the canal and the Dam Steak House is on the right about 80m along. Recommended for a reasonably-priced steak.

I decided to try this restaurant during my stay in Amsterdam in the beginning of May 2013.

BIG MISTAKE!

The stake was absolutely garbage and the waiters were unbelievably rude and unfriendly. They just wanted to get customers in, give them terrible food, steal their money and get rid of them as fast as possible.

So, if you want to have a good steak in a nice restaurant... please, avoid this place! There are plenty of other REAL steakhouses in Amsterdam to go to!

Popped in Dam Steakhouse on a cold Tuesday night this past week. The greeting was friendly enough, seated quickly and presented with a menu. We all had different cuts of beef, and we all were happy with the meat. The tenderloin was, in fairness very nicely cooked, well seasoned and I was more than happy with it. However, the salad was pretty dismal and the chips weren't great.
That said we only visited for the meat not the trimmings so we all left happy.
The toilet is up a very steep spiral staircase, which after a couple of drinks proved somewhat difficult to navigate. The restaurant is hardly plush, but its location is ideal, the prices are reasonable for Amsterdam and the steak is good.
