Went there with a couple of friends. The Food (we had Fajitas) was very delicous - quiet expensive though. The staff on the other hand was very unfriendly: At first, half of our had to ask for knife and fork, cause there werent any at the table. We had to ask serveral times to get more cream with our fajitas... More

Well the promoter outside managed to get us in offering all these deals and any free drink on the house to us so we thought why not. Once we were in it was a complete different menu and the 'deal' they did was very very limited. The food we received was wrong, I paid for a pepperoni pizza to only... More

It took us 20 minuted for the waitress to note us. After that, we had to remind the waitress that we had already ordered for 40 minutes

We tried the Matias "angus" steak burger empanadas and the tacos after being to a concert at melkweg. We both agreed that we have to go back to our student years to remember a place that was actually worse than Matias.. The burger was dry and there is no chance in hell that sole was either angus or fresh. The... More

We went there on our first day in Amsterdam, and at the begining we were not sure of the quality of the place, but they left us with a great impression. The food was very tastefull, especially the grilled chicken, and the portions decent. They had a happy hour when we went so it was a bit cheaper (11 euros... More

We've passed the restaurant and a really nice and calm promoter told us about their offers and convinced us to come in - without being like usual too pushy. He was very kind and even offered us a free beer on the house! The waitress was lovely and advised us to try the fajitas which we did and she didn't... More

We visited last night after being persuaded by the waiter outside who sells the offers very well. Once inside you notice the ripped seats dirty tables and miserable staff. Be careful as if you don't ask for the prices you are quoted outside then they will charge you the prices on the menu. We would have left immediately when we... More

Well, we were tired and cold and hungry and the guy outside convinced us to go inside and offered different prices for us for the Unlimited ribs and Steak. The atmosphere inside is terrible. The staff inside were nor polite nor attentive and they were having their own personal conversations, sipping drinks and laughing loudly just by our table. The... More
