An overhaul is needed

the food was ok - nothing to complain about. Simple without chances for extras. Jacked potatoes or French fries for the steak - I could have used a few more options. The restaurant was completely run down. Only half of the lamps where working and paint was falling of the ceiling. Perhaps... read more

the food was ok - nothing to complain about. Simple without chances for extras. Jacked potatoes or French fries for the steak - I could have used a few more options. The restaurant was completely run down. Only half of the lamps where working and paint was falling of the ceiling. Perhaps everything felt too authentic?

I go to Alberto's everytime Il am in Amsterdam! This Uruguayan restaurant serves excellent meat you cannot miss when in Leidseplein area. Stop by Alberto's for a good and money valuable dinner in a cosy and often busy atmosphere!

We were undecided where to eat on our 3rd night in Amsterdam but we ended up choosing this place and weren't disappointed. Within a minute's walk of the tram stop and in amongst the entertainment district, this Uraguayan restaurant serves some fantastic meat dishes. My better half had the special rump which I was surprised to see her finish as... More

We had the specials which was a choice of steak/ribs/chicken for €12.95. The food was great. Chargrilled chicken was very good. The atmosphere and setting was good.

I visited this restaurant twice with my wife and on both occasions we opted for the twelve and a half euro 'specials'. There's only two options chicken or steak. I had the steak both times cooked medium rare and found the meat to be perfectly cooked, succulent and tender. My wife enjoyed the chicken option on her first visit and... More

we actually went here cause my boyfriend wanted a steak, and he was very satisfied with what he got. But it's in a very touristy street and they don't really have anything for us that doesn't like big steaks. I had a salad and it was not good, and it's not hard to make a salad, but as I said...

Came here after reading the Trip Advisor reviews, but was rather disappointed. The restuarant is located on a strip with many other grill and BBQ restaurants. It was rather empty when we walked in - never a good sign. The inside was very dim and dark, not very welcoming. The staff on the other hand were very nice and helpful.... More

We wanted to eat some chicken burgers, but didn't had a lot of time to look for a burger restaurant. Even though, it wasn't on the menu they still could make it for us. Goes to show how friendly the staff is. Chicken had a great smoky taste!

Was visiting amsterdam with my brother, and was in this area of town looking for somewhere to eat. Most of the restaurants in this area had people outside trying to drag people in which always rings alarm bells to me. However this place had no one dragging people in, and the reviews on trip advisor looked good. Inside was nice,... More
