“Just great all around!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

What a great restaurant. From the moment you enter the smiles say it all. Being in the service industry, this restaurant deserves thumbs up. The Zeebaars was just cooked to perfection but our favorite dish is the Zalm Carpaccio!! Really, what a tasty combination. If you are looking for friendly, authenticl, as well as value for money... then give this cozy place a try!! Tip- ask for the table above the bar as you have the view of the entire place.

“Amazing food, good value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

I've been to la Cacerola a few times now, and it has been amazing every time. A real discovery in Amsterdam. It's famous for its amazing meat, especially the signature Churrasco Picanha which is simply so juicy and full of flavour. But the great thing is that the chef creates new amazing combinations each time, and keeps surprising you. There are also some exotic dishes and day specials varying from curries to scallops in saffron sauce or the amazing Asian fish cakes with green mango salad. Desserts are equally amazing, with the runny Guava Soufflé being one of my favourites!

The atmosphere is cosy, and the staff are very very friendly. It has a homely atmosphere as the restaurant is not so large, and the food is simply delicious, creative and original!

“fab”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

We had a starter called hide and seek which was lovely and then sirloin and fillet as main. These guys really know how to cook meat! The chef was trying 5 different meat sources, (I had the Scottish beef) and was obviously interested in our opinion. Atmosphere was great ,the staff were lovely and the service was fab.

“Absolutely loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

From the look of the restaurant, the atmosphere in general, to the staff, the food and the chef. Everything just works and you can feel that. It's a very relaxed, almost homely place, and the food is amazing. I would definitely recommend the picanha!

“Excellent Brazilian food, great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

The place may easily be mistaken as to be an average place that you wouldn't even consider by the looks of it. Very rustic...
We were met by a very service-minded waitress who offered to carry a table down the stairs and put it outside for us to enjoy the warm summer night! From then on she didn't disappoint either, tentative and there when we needed.
The food was amazing. Very well presented and it was a joy letting the pallet sense the tastes and concistences.
Dutch chef trained by a Brazilian making Brazilian food with a Dutch twist. Highlight was the picanha. Supersoft, juicy and perfectly salted steak made to perfection.
Highly recommended.
