Second visit to Amsterdam, and visited again… steaks are really tasty, come with sauce and potato of choice (baked with soured cream is delicious)… ambiance is friendly, and you can see the food being prepared and cooked in the open kitchen. Well worth a visit.

As soon as we walked in the restaurant staff were polite and helpful. Although it was very quiet it didn't lack an atmosphere, everything about our evening was lovely other than getting one drink wrong which I think was more of a language barrier. Would definitely have gone back if we were staying longer! You'd be crazy not to go... More

If you want a decent steak then it has to be Argentinian (or wagu) depending on how hungry I would go for the fillet or the ribeye . Cooked and seasoned to perfection all within a very nice atmosphere. This is a proper steak house so make sure you leave enough time to soak up all the atmosphere the beer... More

People were very friendly and courteous, and had a great attitude. The food was well prepared and presented, and had wonderful flavor. Being able to see the activity on the street (you... More

We went for meal here late on a Friday evening after flying in to Amsterdam. The restaurant had a great menu with lots of different choices (including good options for vegetarians, which is good at a steak restaurant) and a great wine list. Everything came out really well cooked and was really enjoyable. The staff were very attentive and helpful... More

Visited here recently and I have to say its one of the best restaurants I have dined in, not only in Holland but in Europe. Fantastic, delicious steak, attentive staff, nice ambience, excellent wine list. Faultless. Visit.
