“Excellent Tenderloin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

I had been traveling for close to 11 hours to get to Amsterdam and was looking forward to catching up with friends over a nice meal, so we headed to Alberto's just off Leidsplein for one of the best Beef Lomo meals I have ever had.

“Great steaks and service!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

Just visited for dinner tonight. Fantastic location and on a road full of steakhouses so we weren't sure which to try. I'm very glad we chose Alberto's!

The waitresses were very friendly, efficient and nice. Service was very quick. The lomo steak was so good and we tried the "surprise" dessert, which was tasty and not too scary!

It wasn't cheap - £18 to £26 for a steak but good value for money given the experience.

“Delicious steaks!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

The steaks were all great and cooked perfectly, and the side dishes well seasoned. There is a great choice of sauces, and the staff was very helpful. Only little thing was that we had to share the side dishes, and there was not really enough for everybody.. We would have preferred to have our own side dishes on our own plate.

“Great spot for a steak!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

There's plenty of steakhouses in Amsterdam, but would recommend this one. Choose from one great steak or even three different cuts of steak on one plate! Big servings of salad and chips with it too, and would definitely recommend choosing the homemade pie for dessert. Service very quick too, good value for steaks and nice location

“When in Amsterdam..eat steak”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

There are many things one simply must experience in Amsterdam and one of those things is..eat steak. There are many, many steakhouses, and this one is Uruguayan, and rather good. Huge portions, quick service, not the cheapest but one of the better steakhouses, in my opinion. No room for a dessert sadly.
