While exploring Amsterdam, we passed this restaurant and checked out the menu from outside. The manager then promised us that he would give us free drink if we dined in. So, 8 of us, just went to have early dinner there.
The food is OK, not that special. The atmosphere is also OK. But, when we asked for the bill, the waitress asked us to pay for the drink, although I told her that his manager outside promised that we would have free drink.
After double checked with her manager, she said, the manager said he never promised us such thing. What a liar! Infact, he didn't have to promised us anything before because we planned to dine in his restaurant anyway.
This gave us a very bad last impression.

After checking into our hotel, we headed out to explore Amsterdam and to find a cute cafe with outdoor seating for lunch & found Marco Polo Pizzeria & Steakhouse. We were promptly seated. The pizzas, wine, and beer that we enjoyed were just perfect. the four of us ordered a variety of pizzas, which were individually sized (but if you weren't too hungry, two people could probably share one). We liked it so much that we recommended it to another couple at our hotel & they also had a good experience.

Went here for breakfast one morning and service was absolutely appalling from the moment we sat down. They took a long time to even take our order and when the server came it was like he wasn't paying attention and was incredibly rude the whole time. Had to read the order back three times with several mistakes. Food came out fairly quickly but was of awful quality. Nothing fresh and not well cooked. For the server, even getting us salt seemed like a chore. Not to mention that they also got our order wrong and took an incredibly long time to bring us the cheque when requested. Do not recommend. Plenty of better places right nearby!

We ended up eating at this restaurant because one server/manager that happened to be outside while we were walking by recognized our native language (Maltese) because his girlfriend is from Malta too. He immediately told us that he is going to give us a 10% discount because we were Maltese! We sat down on a large table while watching a football match so atmosphere was hyped and fun to be around.
Food was mouth watering and above average (typical Italian cuisine) and also relative to its price. Staff was constantly checking that everything was all right. Steaks and burgers happen to be the restaurant's speciality from what I gathered from my group of friends.

Keep up the good work!
