Very disappointing. Steak had been frozen, cutting it made my plate like a soup. French fries were horrible, every fast food place has better ones. Salat was of a kind you get in the cheapest supermarket pre-cut. I would say tourist trap! Do not go there.

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...

Well we were looking for a nice restaurant on our last night in Amsterdam, not to poncy or rough for that matter and walking around noticed La Casona. We were not to be disappointed. On entering they were very welcoming. Offered drinks and we had a couple of bottles of Malbec. Also asked if we wanted bread with garlic butter... More

We wanted to get a bite to eat near but not on Rembrandtplein and almost stumbled upon this fantastic Argentinian steakhouse. The pre-threatre deal in particular was superb value and the waitress and chef were very friendly. The salad was huge and full of flavour, the chorizo starter immense, and the mains were great served with various sauces and brilliant... More

They really know how to cook a steak. Excellent food. Friendly staff. Hope to visit again before we leave Amsterdam even though there are many restaurants to visit.

We enjoyed fantastic steak at this restaurant, it is not a place for vegetarians. Service was good and friendly. We appreciated the open and honest explanation that my starter was delayed as it had accident,y ended on the kitchen floor! The dips and salad served with the steaks were the perfect accompaniment.

Walking along Utrechtsestraat in the Jordaan and we came upon this restaurant. We decided to give it a go with no high expectations, and were we ever glad we stopped here! We weren't sure when we looked at the starters but Joe chose the beef carpaccio and I had the onion soup, which I love. for our main course we... More

Found this place on Utrechtsestraat. The food quite good overall. The prie fixe meals helped keep the overall meal cost in line. The house red wine was good. The servers were friendly and helpful. All the items our party of four enjoyed were first rate. The beef was particularly good.
