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.

Food was not bad, but it was not something that you expect to get in a restaurant. Honestly, Mc Donalds food is more delicious. And what we really didn't like, they fooled us with pictures in menu. In real life meat was much smaller than on the pictures. When we told it to waiter he said 'what did you expect... More

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
