Great laid-back atmosphere

great place to have a beer or glas of wine, while enjoying a nice meal with friends. Choose one of the platters and share! Food is great and this way of having diner is really cozy!

It is a 4 stars deserved restaurant with a 5 stars staff. Our waiters Diego and Deborah were very kind and helpful. Steak is good, bit overpriced but think because the great location, fair enough. They show football matches, this is always a good point :)

I had the pleasure of eating here with some colleagues and customers after a day at the Rai. There were 9 of us and after some moving of tables we were seating and being served. The waiter was very enthusiastic maybe because there was 9 of us on expenses, this is where my only warning would come. There was a... More

We've been invited from outside by one of the staff. He showed us what he recommends and we followed him. Great choice of mix grill and nice presentation. I will eat there with the first occasion.

A very nice place for meat lovers. Good steaks! We took the advice from the waiter and got one steak and one mixed grill. Mixed grill looked fun but the steak was tastier.

This steakhouse is located just off Dam Square. We were hungry when we walked past and thought why not? The decor inside is nice enough and the service was friendly, but the fact the restaurant was very busy meant that we were left waiting longer than I would like to be served. The food was quite bland. We had mixed... More

We visited mid week and it was fairly quiet but the staff were very attentive. The mixed tapas starter was lovely but the reason for the visit was the steak which was perfectly cooked and we would certainly recommend to anybody.

7 euro for two chicken wings. Enough said. Guys our front trying to persuade people to come in with cheap specials, you get what you pay for, except here, where you get less than you paid for. You are better off anywhere else I'd say.
