Great place to eat lobster and steak

The menu is limited to lobster and steak, which i found a plus rather than a minus. Easy to make a choice, i had the surf and turf which was delicious. French fries and salad make the meal complete. A very nice choice of deserts is also available, and all for reasonable prices. The restaurant... read more

This place only has steak and lobster as the choice of main course, but for those of us who aren't vegetarian, it's worth it because the location, decor, food and service is excellent. It's also really good value compared to what you typically have to pay for this type and quality of food (we had three courses, with the steak... More

Choosing what to eat is very easy, lobster or steak or a combination of the two. The place is in a great location, right between Spiegelgraacht and Keizersgraacht, the restaurant has a nice, chic style and the service is good as well as the dessert, I'd recommend the coffee with the selection of small desserts.

Had dinner here tonight. Very disappointed. Waited almost an hour for our food. Given that there were only two choices- steak or lobster, this didn't make sense. Observed that those seated way long after us received their food first if they ordered surf and turf. Didn't appreciate that. Waitress was non-existent for most of the evening. Food was good but...

My companion and I spent a long, wonderful day wandering around the canal area. When it was time to eat we found Red by using a travel app. I probably should have read the reviews because i would have learned there are only 2 items on the menu: steak (we would call it filet mignon) and lobster. We arrived without... More

We were impressed with the food when we visited in 2013 and we were just as impressed this time! This is a popular restaurant so booking is advisable - which you can do on-line. They don't try and fit in two sittings, so it is a relaxed evening. We started with glasses of Prosecco (€ 4.50 each), Italian Bread and... More

We went to this restaurant two nights ago, thanks to the suggestion of a friend. The environment is surprisingly green, differently from what the name would suggest! On the ceiling there is a giant paint of a girl making a balloon with a bubble gum, while at the entrance there is a very big vase of perfectly arranged flowers. The... More

I was fortunate to be in Amsterdam recently and took a recommendation from a friend and went to visit a restaurant called Red. This is an excellent restaurant, not quite fine dining, but silver service, but with a relaxed and not stuffy atmosphere. It also has an amazing wine list. They only serve lobster or steak, as well as having... More

We had researched this on Trip Advisor and weren't disappointed at all. Very nice decor and ambiance. Great steak and lobster which came with a small salad and fries. My husband finished with the cheese board which he usually enjoys but not so much this one. I would advise booking it is not huge and seemed very popular.

We, a group of friends, had an amazing evening at RED. Perfect meat, very cosy interior and lovely staff. The only thing that would have improved our visit would've been if they'd had a real bar/bartender (now they only have a few different drinks, not even cocktails). Felt like good value for money.
