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

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. :)
