A MUST

Tiny restaurant with maybe 15 tables. No menu. There's only steak and lobster. Or both. The steak is filet mignon, the knife practically slices through like it was melted butter.... The lobster (half) is cooked to perfection with a heavenly sauce. The staff is nice and attentive. Need to make a... read more

My boyfriend made a last minute reservation at this restaurant on a Saturday night. Finding restaurants that will still serve food at 11 pm in Amsterdam is not as obvious as one would think and we had no expectations, but this place turned out to be really nice. It has a lovely view over the canal and it's very nicely... More

We adore Amsterdam and have visited the city over the last 26 years, this time we decided as it was just the two of us to make this visit a gastronomic experience. RED did not dissapoint. Walking through the cloaked entrance into the dining room was an experience in its self, the dining room is cool and funky with a... More

I came here with a large work group. The simple menu - lobster, steak or combo makes ordering with many easy. Food was good. Not amazing. I had the lobster with garlic butter. It's wax a good size and well prepared. I wouldn't rush back but happy to have tried. The atmosphere was pleasant and suitable for all occasions.

We had a nice dinner in a lovely setting. Service was excellent and the prices are reasonable for what you get. The only small issue for us was the number of people walking in asking for a table (we were sat near the door), all of whom were told the restaurant was fully booked. Perhaps a sign outside could have... More

My friends told me that I have to come and try (they are known for lobster&steak). I was a bit sceptic but it really was one of the best steaks I ever had, so when in Amsterdan book a table and enjoy! (P.S. order half of a lobster and the steak :) )
