“Great meat!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014 via mobile

Great food. Modern, stylish athmosphere. Full, make a reservation, also on weekdays. Booths look good but are hard and uncomfortable.

“Real steak in wonderful interior”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

Although this restaurant deserves a whole evening we choose to have a main course before we went to see a play at Lieve Vrouw Theatre. Full meal with soft juicy meat, delicious salad bar and very friendly personel. The cook came to our table.

“Good steak in fancy environment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Steak is not very special or extra ordinary but It is the best steak I had in Amersfoort so far.
Staff are very nice and they speak English :)
Environment is so cool and designed very well. I really like their woody decoration. It 's art!
Potato with sour cream is so good, but Salad bar doesn't have so variety. Sangria is not as good as Sangria I had before.

Generally, when I want to have a nice steak in Amersfoort my first choice is "El Ternero".

“Average food and poor service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant looks nice but it's just a shame the food and service don't match the surroundings.

The steaks are fine but nothing special.
The spicy rice was a microwaved plain type with a small amount of seasoning sprinkled on top. Very poor.
The buffet salad is a nice touch.
Service is its biggest drawback, very poor.

“Nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

We came here for the meat. It was ok but nothing out of the ordinary. There are better argentinian restaurants to be found in Hilversum or Amsterdam.
