Quick stop

At the time of our visit there were few customers in the restaurant but maybe it wasn't the appropriate hour. I... read more

We ordered the rip eye and new york strip. Meat was cheap cut but alright. When we ordered the dessert, which was supposed to be 3 different homemade sorbet, we got 3 scoops of the same sorbey. Without telling us that they were out of the other two sorbet, they served it and did not say a word. After we... More

Credit where it's due, the staff were very welcoming. However unfortunately an essential part of any restaurant is the quality of the food, which was frankly, really poor. The ribeye steak was a cheap cut which ended up being really stringy and fatty. The vast majority of the menu was frozen and I would not have the T-bone which happens... More

Just that really - My wife had a regular rump steak. It was delicious. But I'd deliberately sought out an Argentinian steak restaurant to try a really great steak. So ordered the Medallon De Lomo (Tenderloin). It was just the best. Thanks to all the staff there. Well worth the extra we paid over and above the sirloin. Highly recommended... More

There were four adults and one two-year-old boy having a dinner in this La Boca restaurant on 20 September 2015. We have had a dinner there a couple of times earlier and wanted to go there as we know that it is a high quality restaurant. No disapointment this time either. We had grilled spare ribs and soup for starters... More

My personal favourite steak house in Amsterdam, recently refurbished and now a lot brighter and spacious. The important thing is that the steaks are as excellent as ever.

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
