great food in the hart of Amsterdam

a very nice restaurant close to the Dam. Great atmosphere and service. The steaks were great and also the hamburger was very nice. The side dishes were also of a good quality. Great value for money.

Stumbled across it after visiting the smallest bar in Amsterdam literally accros the street Food and atmosphere excellent but what really stoke the show for us was Damien the waiter who took our order for 3 with starters, mains and side dishes without writing it down, as the restaurant was busy we feared the worst but he returned with the...

Had an amazing birthday meal with my girlfriend in here! The selection of Tapas was perfect, with probably the best Pork we have had in a restaurant. Great atmosphere and very friendly, helpful staff..Highly recommend this place!

The service was okay and the first dish I ordered was very poor but they replaced it for me, they replaced it but still charged me for half the dish despite barely starting it. My partners Penne Arrabbiata was the best i've tried so they perfected that.

Found this a bit by accident, the staff found us a table even though we had not booked, a good selection of meals, including vegetarian and a good atmosphere with friendly English speaking staff, menu's were also in English. If you are in the area, then I really would recommend a visit as the food is excellent.

Well, considering we didn't really venture far this was the best restaurant we went too, it was modern, the service was great, cocktails were beautiful and the steak was divine. Obviously like all steak places it is going to be a little more expensive, but I didn't care because it was top standard food. Had a great evening here, I... More

The food was impecable! Steak was delicious. On par with Gaucho, but cheaper. Very good burger, steak sandwich and pastas. All 5*. The service was very friendly. Wine options a little limited but a fair selection. 3 floors of seating so chances are good if you haven't booked. Lots of stairs though (as have many Amsterdam buildings).
