If you want steak then this is the place to come to. A very simple restaurant where you can watch the owner cook your steak to your instructions. The meat is top class and the passion for steaks come throughout the menu. Mind you the home made chocolate mousse is rather nice too. The service is excellent too making this... More

Fantastic, Joop is a butcher managing the oldest restaurant in town managing the cooking himself. Real authentic Dutch food and very excellent meat. Go there also if your not Dutch!

If you want to have the best pan fried super fillet steaks, look no further. Joop is Danish, who both owns and cooks himself. A more perfect pepper fillet you will never find elsewhere. Ask for medium rare - it's the only way to enjoy their fillets to the max. Their bar one milkshakes are also fantastic.

The steaks were done to perfection. Would have made many a very fine steak house in London feel embarrassed with the quality of the steak here. All round a very good experience. Highly recommended.

The title says it all. Sure, the service is great, the atmosphere relaxed, the wine list well-appointed but really we're all there for the main event - the best steak you'll ever have. Pick the pan fried pepper steak and move directly on to what heaven tastes like. I've been coming here for nearly 20 years and I've never left... More

I have heard so much about this place over the years and how good it was, I decided to try it as my choice for my mates. I must admit I was very disappointed and wouldn't rush back there in a hurry. The service was average, but we were told at about 1.45 that the kitchen was closing at 2... More

I have never been so dismissably treated in a restaurant that aspires to fine grill eating. The food was fine, but how can a supposedly serious restauranteur FORCE diners to partake of the sub-optimal wine on offering. I had brought along Faithful Hound 2007 BUT WAS NOT PERMITTED TO DRINK MY OWN WINE!!!! I even offered to buy Joop's wine... More
