“Excellent food... but”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

The food was excellent but having to wait 90 minutes to be served is NOT acceptable... the problem seamed to be on the service and not the kitchen. We tried again after a few days and it all went very smooth... still it should not have happened

“Nice Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014 via mobile

My wife and I ate here last night. The service was great and the steaks were perfectly prepared. The wine list was a little thin but I would definitely return for one of their steaks again.

“Be aware what you will pay for!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

In the moment of payment it turned out how small portion is foreseen per 1 person in case of variety of grilled dishes... Food is good but it is much better to ask just for a steak - then you will be sure hwo big or small steak is for you. In case of variety for 2 pax, when 3rd pax was added the portion per person turned out to be more like a starter with a price like for a normal dinner. The welcome was also with not very pleasant joke by a waiter... generally speaking only good quality of meat helped them to get from me as a guest a note "average" instead of "poor". But I will rather not recommed my friends to go there...

This was a tip from a local for a good steak. I was very happy with the service, the food and the wine selection of this restaurant. I will be back here next time i am in Amsterdam.
