Great steak

Elegant restaurant on the Keizersgracht. The interior is classy, and the staff friendly. When ordering the main course you have three options, lobster, steak, or a combination of the two. Would recommend everyone to visit. However, you should make a reservation as it is a very popular place.

A very simple menu but so good. The steaks are cooked so well, service is good and the lobster is delicious. The salad was very small and it would heave helped if the menu was also in other languages than Dutch but the food cannot be faulted.Nnot our first visit here and certainly not our last.

We ate here to celebrate our engagement and it didn't disappoint. It was recommended to us before we came to Amsterdam and then it is also recommended in the Banks Mansion hotel guide for visitors which made our choice even better. It is quite a subtle building with a white lamp on door. It isn't coloured red in anyway and... More

I don't have anything bad to write about this restaurant, we went because of the great rating on trip adviser and it didnt let me down! Great atmosphere, amazing food, attentive staff and reasonably priced for the quality of food and drink.

Both steak and lobster was delicious and the service was great. You should make a reservation couple of days before, as it gets filled up quickly.

Our first dinner in Amsterdam. Nice setting, overlooking the Keizersgracht; reservation mandatory. The menu is simple: a tenderloin steak or a lobster - or a combination of both. Regretfully, the execution is not perfect - at least, it wasn't that night. The lobster, in particular, was *way* overcooked; the bearnaise and the mayonnaise sauces very bland and lacked of consistency.... More

We couldn't go to this restaurant since we had no reservation when we asked at 18.00 pm. Especially at the weekend all good restaurants ask for reservation and if you don't have any they confirm after 22.00 pm:(

Since this restaurant has a limited menu they do an excellent job in preparing the food. I had the surf and turf and the meal was delicious. The lemon pie for desert was also very good.

When my boyfriend asks me where I want to go for dinner then RED is always the answer! The lobster is delicious, french fries are tastefull and the wines (italian prosecco!) are fantastic! Simply my favorite restaurant of Amsterdam! A place we absolutely advice you to visit.
