“Excellent Beef”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

Found this place on Utrechtsestraat. The food quite good overall. The prie fixe meals helped keep the overall meal cost in line. The house red wine was good. The servers were friendly and helpful. All the items our party of four enjoyed were first rate. The beef was particularly good.

“Expensive beyond its value”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

The meat is good, but it's served without any (!) garnish. The service will of course recommend ordering it separately, which is of course a sensible thing to do. But it's just their way of hiding how much more expensive a normal course results compared to any other restaurant in their quality range.

They have very limited choice of beers, and of course incredibly expensive. I don't think you can find a more expensive glass of Heineken in all Amsterdam, and that's pretty much what they have. They also have Argentinian beer Quilmes, not very good, and of course even far more expensive.

You can find many better places to eat.

“Good tasty food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

We picked this lovely looking place at random, the waitress was friendly when seating us and taking our order. We went for Argentinian tapas to start, which was a spicy sausage and 2 corn & emepeda pastys, which were very tasty. We'd gone for ribs for the main in a medium spicy sauce, they were good but the meat didn't exactely fall off the bone. There was plenty of them, as well as the side order of fries. They do have bottled Argentinian beer, as well as local brands.
