“Good Burger”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

Stopped here for an early dinner on a Sunday evening and we were immediately seated. I had the bacon and cheese burger (14.75 euro) and my wife had the lomito sandwich (11.50 euro). The burger was cooked perfectly and my wife really liked the sandwich. In fact, she asked for the recipe for the red onion marmalade topping on the sandwich and was given it. The dishes were not inexpensive, but were reasonable in comparison to other restaurants we visited in Amsterdam. A ten percent gratuity was included in the bill. With a bottle of wine, the total bill was 54.95 euro; not too bad for a nice dinner in Amsterdam. Service was prompt and friendly. There is outdoor seating. The restaurant is not fancy, so it is comfortable for tourists who are roaming the city in casual wear.

“I am sure the steak is good but Eat the Burger”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

A lunch stop - it just look good on passing. - We asked for our burgers rare and If you like stake tartar just blackened on the outside you will love this. We did and rate this as possibly the best burger we have ever had.
Just off the Dam, Atmosphere is modern and buzzy - When considering the prices, which are not excessive, remember this is not supermarket mince.

“Very good steak”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

Come here if you want to enjoy a good steak and a nice atmosphere. The place is quite busy so don’t expect to dine alone. The interior is dark and modern.

We shared the 500 g steak and it was tasting great, the meat was of good quality and the chefs certainly knows what they are doing. With starter and side potatoes the big steak was enough for the two of us.

The service was nice and friendly but our server was a little bit pushy, a salesman if you like.

We paid 60 € for the two of us, which is ok considering the good quality of the meat. But 5 € for a water bottle is ridiculous.

“Best burger ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

Ordered burgers rare. Like a warm steak tartare.
Absolutely delicious Brioche bun and a wonderful salsa ( I had the spicy one with avocado) hubby had cheese and bacon burger
The meat was so lean and fresh and soft. I think I would order it medium next time
Then we had pancakes with an amazing caramel sauce.
Great meal.
