Lovely food here, great location and great atmosphere. Accomodated a party of 13 of us easily at short notice, waiting staff could have been a little friendlier though!

Great place for a good argentinian steak. Almost better than in Buenos Aires (except for prices). Nice place, nice people, good food, good prices. Unexpected to be found so far from home.

I always try & eat here if I'm in Amsterdam. Really funky decor, great atmosphere, really good service & mega juicy big steaks with great sides! One of the best Steakhouses outside the US!

The only thing that did not live up to expectations were their side dishes ( which you must order separately ) they could have been done better. Try the... More
