First impression: Small, cozy, too much staff! We went to La Boca with a special offer (29,00 in stead of 88,80 for 2 people) including a mixed tapas starter, mixed grill and a icecream as dessert. When it's a offer then you should offer the exact same but in this case we had smaller portions. Staff asked us if we... More

They have cards in the door with menus for tourist, but inside they show the list with other prices. But the food is grate and not very expensive. The meat is great.

The service is swift and friendly. The menu is mainstream Argentinian. We had grilled sirloin steak with a crisp salad and pepper-sauce. Excellent meat and grilled exactly as we ordered it.

Coming from Africa and spending 23 days already in Europe, I was craving for some real lecker steaks. Amsterdam actually has quite a few steak and pancake houses. We ended up going here as they had a very convincing and good tourist menu. Service was excellent - a bit small - feels like you are in a small western saloon,... More

The service was incredible friendly , they even recognize me all the time as I am residing in the city for a long... More

On our first visit to this Argentinian grill restaurant, we played safe by ordering spare ribs and pork chops. The ribs were rather dry and did not come with generous serving of BBQ sauce, while the pork chops were overcooked. These items, plus beer, Margarita and orange juice added up to 71.60 euros. The second evening, we just tried the... More

I hosted business dinner for 12 people and the restaurant take care of this really well. Food was good, service was OK and overall experience was (again) really good. I'd recommend this!

have you ever eaten at a place when you get angry when you've finished your meal? If you want that, than swing by here! We ate the menu that was exposed outside, and were amazed by the amount of food we got. We could've gone to another Argentinian restaurant! Do not, I repeat, do not swing by if you want... More

Extremely slow service. My wife ordered spaghetti bolognese. The sauce was basically water. It had clearly just bean taken from a tin. The chef left the restaurant in the middle of the meal and came back about 15 mins later with bags of food. Waitress started apologising but also said that it wasn't her fault and that she was just... More
