“Great Argentinian steaks..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

If you are looking for steak, this is a good choice. They have an excellent selection of cuts, all argentinian beef. They cooked my steak perfectly and the service was excellent. The only thing that did not live up to expectations were their side dishes ( which you must order separately ) they could have been done better. Try the corn flake ice cream sundae!!!!

“Beautiful food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2014 via mobile

Absolutely fabulous dinner for 2, more on the expensive side but worth it. Shared bruschetta and sausages to start, both were delicious. Steak and pork belly for our mains which were also great. The waiter was attentive and friendly but not overbearing. Would return if I go back to Amsterdam.

“Good fare, good price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

We had dinner last night and for a Friday night in Amsterdam when it's ridiculously crowded out in the streets, it was really nice to be inside with a cold beer. I would recommend the fishcakes and a selection of the sausages as a "tapas" type starter for two. For the main I had the sweet
potato salad and my better half, the sirloin and slaw. All was completely delicious and reasonably priced. Better half commenting that his steak was one of the best he'd had for a long time. CAU is an easy walk from Dam Square. Get there before 7 if u can as it fills up quick.

“Fab food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2014

The place is really buzzy, very busy and the food we had was perfect. We were on the second floor but the hostess asked if I was ok to take the stairs as I had a walking stick with me. So they scored points straight off for that, not may places are that considerate. Our waitress or I should say caugirl Gemma was lovely she was helpful with recommendations from the menu, polite and took time with us which even though the place was busy was really nice as you didn't feel you were being rushed.
The atmosphere was great and the wine and food of a high standard, we will go back next time we visit. The homemade coleslaw is really really good, and the steaks delicious.

“Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

This is a lovely restaurant just off Dam square. The food was tasty if a little pricey but that is to be expected so close to the center. I found allot of lovely restaurants a few minutes further away from the busy square but if you don't mind paying the extra this is probably one of the better restaurants right in the "tourist Trap"
