“Cramped Seating and gourmet food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

Amsterdam food place has a wide plethora of steak houses, so we decided to take the plunge. They have seating outside and warm cozy wooden interiors. It looked very invited as we entered so we decided to park ourselves. Lady taking the order was quite cordial and help us decide the chicken dish. Service was prompt and food was well cooked and presented. We enjoyed our meal though stuff was a little spicy. Would recommend the place for a gourmet meal. Suggest you go off peak hours to get prompt and good service, otherwise they could be short staffed. They have seating arrangement in the first floor, over all quite cramped every where, so off peak hours less people so little more peaceful.

“Excellent meal and overall experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

My boyfriend and I ate here for dinner while in Amsterdam and loved it! Despite it’s location, it is not a tourist trap! The food and service were excellent and the price was very good. We got the platter for two, priced at 49,95. With that, we got two different kinds of steak, ribs, chicken, sausage, shrimp, and corn on the cob. (A serving for each of us of those items!) We also each got our own bowl of french fries and our own salad. It was honestly too much food for us, and we were not able to finish it all. We were saying it could have been enough for three of me, or two of my boyfriend. (Haha!) The tenderloin was melt-in-your-mouth delicious, and is worth getting just on its own on a future visit. We got the garlic sauce along with our platter, and used it on the meat and the french fries - REALLY good! This restaurant appears to have several locations around the city, but we ate at the one right off of Leidseplein. Highly recommend!

“Do not try the menu for two!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

We entered this restaurant for lunch and ordered the menu for two, including steak, fries, salad and a bottle of wine for €49; it seemed like a good offer. Unfortunately, the steak was nothing but fat and it was extremely nervy that I couldn't finish it. The service was very slow, the staff was careless. Overall, a very bad experience, not recommending.
