Great steak, good atmosphere

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... read 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.

We went to La Boca with a lunch voucher, for starters it was mentioned spanish tapas: not the reality. two chicken wings with bread and a empanada that was not good. the grilled steak was nothing special, after that we were not in the mood for the included dessert and we asked for a coffee instead of it. we were...

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
