After looking at a few places I panic picked this one and I'm glad I did. Goulash soup to start would have been enough to do as a meal it was so rich and flavourful. cajun chicken for main, not sure about chips and salad included in the price as I couldn't finish it all! staff were outstanding and... read more

We ordered Sirloin Steak and Spare Ribs. The steak is about as good as what cheap supermarket offers, and the ribs are just atrocious and feel like they've been frozen for ages. I can't believe we paid 60 euros for this meal.

If you feel the need to dine at an excellent Argentinian restaurant when you are in Amsterdam then La Casona is a good choice. The meat is beautifully done, the wine list includes excellent Argentinian malbecs, and a nice touch is the chef quietly coming around the tables at the end of the evening to inquire how things went.

Having just been in Argentina we were surprised how many Argentinian restaurants are in Amsterdam. La Casona is a lovely chef owned establishment on trendy Utrectstraat. Our meal was tasteful and nicely served. We did not expect the lomo beef to be exactly the same as in South America. But it was very good. The chef spent some time chatting... More

Just had a meal at La Casona & was quite disappointed. The starter of Serrano, well should never be served with a salad, as every good Spaniard will tell you, Serrano must come with bread. The Serrano was machine cut, if you are going to charge E9.75, cut it by hand. Where do I start with the steak, Argentinian means... More

Food was good and setting good. My wife had Tuna which was very nice but my steak was fatty and not good value as a result. It was a good meal but not somewhere I would go back to as in our two week trip we ate better elsewhere.

A nice enough place, but we felt a bit rushed and never really relaxed into enjoying the evening here. The empanadas were tasty, but small for the price and overly fussy - instead of the frills of added sauce and garnish I would have preferred 3 empanadas rather than 2. The steaks were fine - not bad, but nothing particularly... More

I had the pleasure of dining at La Casona late february 2014, with my sister and my son. The meal from start to finish was wonderful! The service was great and they had a nice wine selection to accompany the dinner. The food presentation was beautiful and the portions plentiful! I had the grilled prawns, my sister had the tuna...
