Uruguayan meat rocks!

I have never tried Uruguayan beef as it never occurred to me that it might be any better than British or Argentinian. But hey, we learn something new every day. The fillet I had was one of the best I have ever tried and I would highly recommend to anyone. Service was friendly and ambience was... read more

I have been going here for 5 years and each time I visit this city I have to treat myself to one of the best steaks in the world. (possibly a slight exaggeration but it is fantastic). The open kitchen allows you to watch the chef cook your food on the charcoal grill right in full view of the restaurant.... More

First venture into an Uruguayan restaurant. The fixed menu price was the attraction. A lovely friendly atmosphere, the restaurant has an old fashioned feel to it. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The meal - first course, main and then tea or coffee was really excellent. The starter - soup was tomato - not usually my favourite, but this... More

Food was plain, asked to get meat well done, was given it still raw. Sausgae given was not a chorizo as I had asked.

we visted this steak restaurant twice on a weekend break. There are so many steak houses in Amsterdam its overwhelming. We were both happy with our starters & main & the wine. Food was very tasty & good value. Service was excellent. I would only comment the place could do with a little TLC around the edges.

There are a lot of steakhouses in Amsterdam, so why choose this one? Well for one the food quality is exceptional, both of our steaks were done to our liking and had a lot of flavour. The sides of chips and salad both came as sharer plates between the both of us, which was a nice touch. Service was quick,... More

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
