We seated ourselves and were promptly waited on at a time when the restaurant was moderately but not overly busy. My wife and I intended to split a pizza and another entree. We attempted to order some tap water from the bartender/waiter who waited on us before we decided on our pizza ingredients, but he he informed us we'd have to order some food or a drink first. Per his comments and attitude, we felt pressured into ordering bottled water (which we did, as I didn't want to create a scene with my wife present), but did so reluctantly. It ended up costing us 5 euros, as I recall, which was a total waste of our money. We're an affluent couple who are poised and well-dressed, so it was stupidly presumptuous to assume we'd simply stop in for free tap water while we perused the menu, then order nothing. We ended up ordering one pizza, as I was put off by his comments. I figured I'd order the entree after the pizza arrived, if our experience got better. The pizza came in a reasonable amount of time and was quite good, with the exception of the fact that they don't cut it for you and it's extremely difficult to cut with the rather dull knives they provide you. While waiting for our pizza, the couple next to us asked the waitress if she would please cut the pizza she delivered to them. She gave them a HUGE attitude and barked that if they wanted the pizza cut, they should have asked for that before they ordered it. She took it away, brought it back (cut into pieces) and shoved it across their table with a snotty look and no comment. In short, our pizza was good and reasonably priced, but the employees of this establishment ruined our experience - and since dining is as much about the positive experience as it is about the quality of the food, I would never return here. There are many other good restaurants in Amsterdam that have good food AND offer a positive experience. I would strongly recommend you choose one of them.
