Good food, good service, reasonably priced.

stumbled across La Boca and had great food and great service. Looks very small from the outside but has larger rooms available. Quick service. Toilet facilities upstairs which could be a problem for some.

15,95 for a" mixed tapas plate" composed of one chicken wing, a small sausage, a small empanada, and a baby rib. A ridiculous plate, in which the best thing probably was the lettuce ( without any dressing ). Overpriced tourist trap. We went to mac Donald's afterwards.

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 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 you want (this... 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!

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
