“Nice food, good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2014

We visited here as a party of four (one veggie). Now, In Amsterdam central you are spoilt for choice of Argentinian restaurants (they are plentiful). We stopped by here as my husband noticed the unlimited ribs advertised. I am vegetarian so I ordered the enchiladas. The service was attentive and the food was very nice. We wondered how it could be unlimited ribs (the guys had a pretty big rack of them on their first sitting), the waiter then came over and asked if they would like more. My hubby replied he would have half of our friends with him so they brought out one and a half rack of ribs! All in all an enjoyable evening and pleasant food. My veggie option was lovely and tasty and plentiful. Would recommend.

Service was excellent, food was fine. We had unlimited ribs and fajitas. No problems at all. About €90 for four of us with drinks.

“Afternoon meal”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

Decided to have a meal at the end of a shipping trip and came across this restaurant in a street full of places to eat. The menu looked good and the establishment did not give the impression of a fast food joint like many if the others in the same area. We decided to have a mixed grill for 2 and chose a baked potato and rice to accompany the meat. The potato was awful ( how can you get a baked potato wrong!) it appeared to be rotten and definitely tasted like it was.
The meat was ok. Although served in a hot plate. The meat was actually just Luke warm. Halfway through the meal the background music was suddenly turned up very loud and totally destroyed any atmosphere in the place.
The waitress was very pleasant and attentive but unfortunately this did not make up for the cheap food atmosphere in the place. We will not return!
