A very arrogant waiter who ignored my allergy and when I told him the dish contain my allergen, despite promising it shouldn't, he just laughed. If you have any allergies - stay away.

After 10 minutes we stayed alone and nobody came to ask even if... More

Nothing special about the food. We ordered steak fillet and spare ribs and it was average, not more. Good service. Open at night till 23:30.

After a long wait they came around eventually and asked us for drinks, 3 of us wanted tap water. About half an hour later they showed up with half the drinks and when i asked them about the tap...

Meat was small and very very stingy on the chips! We actually went and had more food that evening a couple of hours later as we weren't... More

Tourist menu €15 for steak, chicken fillet, ribs and chips. Seems great but u get a tiny portion of a steak, little bit of chicken fillet, and fatty greasy ribs of some sort. Rotten and overpriced like all restaurants in Amsterdam.

Great food, super friendly team, excellent quality/price ratio. We were eating here twice in a 5 days fair in March 2016. The food was so tasty that we could not stopped returning here. Great meat and very friendly atmosphere.

When we entered the hotel we were told to sit where we want, when we sat down the waiter came over and told us we couldn't sit at that table anymore so we were moved, which was strange because another couple came in then and sat there. We ordered steak and chips with some side salad. The steak was the... More
