Very good steak

Came here for a meal on a Monday evening, my girlfriend and I both ordered the rump steak which was cooked well, however my side dish of fries was quite small. The restaurant decor is nice and modern and has a good feel about it. The staff were very friendly and efficient; the meal was a tad... read more

The restaurant is huge, so if you don't have a reservation it's ideal. the small dishes are really good, specially the pork tempura. Then you think the beef should be even better - wrong. Ordered a vacio steak and the meat is not good. Recommend to go there for the small dishes

Glad we had booked as it was very busy in the evening - people were queuing. Started with nice cocktails followed by fabulous Rib Eye steak (300g was enough). Sides are extra - triple cooked chips very good. Believe it or not there was a vegetarian with us but none the less her Pumpkin Risotto with side dish of Broccoli... More

The restaurant decor is very modern, and extremely clean. The food was lovely (we both had pasta) and a nice bottle of wine. The cost was... More

A nice restaurant at the heart of the city with a cosy atmosphere. Food is lovely, but I was a bit disappointed with the side dishes. They are quite small and I missed some vegetables on the plate itself. It was just a steak, that's it. I expected a bit more imagination... Service was friendly but chaotic. Empty drinks were...

Visited this restaurant 3 days ago to grab a quick lunch as we were in Dam Square. The food was stunning, staff were lovely. Slightly expensive but nothing major considering your in a Capitol City! Would definitely recommend!!
