Great steak in casual atmosphere

Was pleasantly surprised with quality of the filet that I ordered. Dark restaurant with argentine artwork and music playing. Great sides and food. Despite an unassuming exterior, would highly recommend checking out. You will be glad that you did!

As the title mentions, the steak was really excellent. The beef texture was like butter as it was so soft and delicious. The inconvenient as it was mentioned in some reviews is that when it's served it's served in platter with loads of smoking coming out but... it is a steakhouse and not a Gourmet Restaurant so for me that...

Its a very good restaurant where to enjoy a dinner with friends. Meat is very soft and tasty. They have a great selection of wine from all over the world. Little bit expensive

I visited twice whilst in Rotterdam on business. The food and service were excellent on both occasions. The view in the Harbour is fantastic and we had the opportunity to sit outside on a beautiful evening. They also cook the meat to perfection I had an excellent rare rack of lamb.

I was wanting steak for dinner but somehow the salmon caught my attention. The server was great about putting everything on the side whether it be the sauce for the salmon or toppings for potato. The dinner was really hot, served on a sizzling plate, and cooked just right. I look forward to going back when I'm craving a nice... More

I started there with some bread, but at the first bite I took I had a long womens hair in my mouth. For me that is a BIG NO! That is reason enough to give only 1 out 5 "stars". But the meat was really good, so that is why they got 2 "stars". On the other hand, we were... More

Restaurant is refurnished lately. Very good meat dishes served of friendly staff. A lot of smoke/steam form hotplates so a better ventilation system is needed. Good value for money.

Popped in whilst travelling on business. Food was very good. Went for chicken wing starter.. caution large portion and then the rump steak which was served on a sizzling platter. House red also a good drop. Could not complain at all.
