The environment is friendly and welcoming, but the lighting needs to be adjusted as it is quite dim. We were attended immediately by the waitress who was friendly and fast. We did choose to not get any appetiser and opted for the garlic bread and butter while waiting our main courses. For the main courses we both ordered ribeye steak... More

Had a great meal here. Steaks are cooked on a grill in the middle of the restaurant - and can be ordered in sizes from 225 to 500g. 225g fillet was just right for me. We also ordered the mixed starters - in retrospect we should have gone straight to the main course and then we might have had room... More

I enjoyed my business dinner. Friendly and polite staff took fast our order but main dish came late. Sirloin steak was good, ribs were also good and salad was excellent. Fried potatoes were burned. We ordered a well done steak without any blood on it and they served exactly what we ordered. I wish that someone could explain more about... More

This is a family owned restaurant selling fabulous steaks which are served on sizzling hot plates (although you can ask for cold plates). Ribs, lamb, chicken, prawns and many other dishes are available but the steaks are why most people eat here. The place is not fancy and is having a facelift to pull it out of 1970's style decor....

First night in Rotterdam and how lucky were we to find this great restaurant. Perfectly cooked meat accompanied by lovely salad and chips. Very reasonably priced and tremendous service from all the staff. We also had a great bottle of malice from Mendoza and when we settled the bill they invited us to a glass on the house. Heartily recommended... More

We went there by accident and were surprised. Don't get distracted by the looks of this place it's not your "shiny, top notch style, inner city Steak House". It appears to be a family-owned restaurant. With simple wooden tables and benches a huge open grill and a bar. You actually can order the steakes by gram starting from around 225g... More

This restaurant is he place to go when you want to eat brilliant meat. The quality of the meat is excellent and the cook has a giant grill inside the restaurant, on which he prepares your orders. No secrets, what you order is what you see and what you get. We tried beef and pork ribs. The beef is served... More
