“Very well prepared!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

We visited Albert's Carreta and picked it because of the Uruguayan kitchen. This is just the way you will find grilled steaks in Argentina or Uruguay, grilled, and high quality meat.
If you adore steaks, then this is a good place to go. The meat we had was of an excellent quality and was prepared very well. I had the trio, three different pieces of meat, rare. The temperature was just perfect and it just melts in your mouth.

And: they speak Spanish!

“Fantastic meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

Just come back from a stag weekend in Amsterdam and found this little gem. On the outside does not look fancy and across from it was another better looking restaurant but if you can see past it it serves some of the best steaks I had in a very long time. So good we ate there again the next night.

“Not as good as it used to be”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

We've been to Amsterdam over 30 times, and every time we head to Alberto's Carreta for a steak.

It used to be great value for money, but recently the prices have crept up, and the quality has come down.

Years ago when we started to visit, you could get a great value steak, cooked to perfection, and seasoned just right. Prices used to be very competitive, the staff were friendly and you could be assured of a great night out.

Our last visit in September was disappointing. The steak was grissly, portion sizes small, and the service was slow. Added to this, a bill which didn't leave us much change from fifty euros (for two) We left thinking that it will never get back to the good old days.

Shame to say that for the first time ever, our next Amsterdam visit probably won't include Alberto's

We came by accident and it was a hreat one. The hamburger at 7.5 euros was the best of my experience.
