Steak heaven

We were looking for a steak meal and saw this place right by the Dam square. The waiter was outside and was friendly so we decided to go in. With plenty of room, tables spaced apart it was a nice atmosphere. Staff were attentive and helpfull. There are set meal prices or you can just add what... read more

I am sorry but 14 Euro for a hamburger without anything, just a hamburger and bread (seriously, people, not even mustard, ketchup, cheese or anything) plus about 10 fries and a small salad is a bit too much. You guys really took the word hamburger too seriously. Please, do yourself a favour and pay half the price for a big... More

The atmosphere in this restaurant is very gaucho-like! It is not too big, giving it a cosy feeling. The meat here is from the best cuts and very juicy and tender. Also they have a fabulous selection of wine. I recommend having a glass of Argentinian Malbec. You can also smell the aromas from the Asado grill! I would recommend... More

we came in here for my birthday meal and were enticed by the set menu outside but decided to eat from the normal menu. When we received our bill it was much higher than we thought it would be. We were charged for onion rings that we never ordered or had and when we paid it took over 10 minutes... More

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 :)

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!

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.
