The only thing that worked in this restaurant was the waitress (a young Polish girl), the rest was bad, bad, bad. We waited 1 hour for our entrees, which were undersized, then we waited a further 1.5 hours for our main courses, which were not to our order (rare in stead of medium, etc.). Other guests were leaving disgruntled left... More

Very poor service. First (3 people) we waited 30min for the waiter to just pass by our table and take our order. Then many other people and groups just came in, sat at other tables, had their orders taken, had food brought to the table and even left but our order still did not arrive. Still no food after 1:30h... More

There are lot's of restaurants and eateries that surrond this place so why choose here? We were tempted in by the specials board as for €12,50 each you could select Spare Ribs or Grilled Chicken Steak. As our appitite was affected by illness we thought the lower price of the plate would be reflected in the quantity of food that... More

Average steakhouse. The meat was OK, the sour cream was missing for the baked potatoes and the salad wasn't good. Lack of ambiance, staff is pretty friendly though.

After checking reviews on TripAdvisor we decided to check this place out. Decor wasn't much to look at but food was excellent! Steaks were well prepared and tender and cooked well! Sideline portions were huge as well so we were very full afterwards. Definitely the best meal we've had in Amsterdam so far. :)

We visited Albert's Carreta and picked it because of the Uruguayan kitchen. This is just the way you will find grilled steaks in Argentina or Uruguay, grilled, and high quality meat. If you adore steaks, then this is a good place to go. The meat we had was of an excellent quality and was prepared very well. I had the... More

Just come back from a stag weekend in Amsterdam and found this little gem. On the outside does not look fancy and across from it was another better looking restaurant but if you can see past it it serves some of the best steaks I had in a very long time. So good we ate there again the next night.
