My wife and I had dinner... I'm not sure you can call it that. The main meal was inedible and the sides (after reminding the waitress that we were waiting) never arrived. Just an absolute awful experience that you should avoid art all cost!

Are here on first night in Amsterdam and felt sick for the rest of my visit. The steak was ok but my fries arrived which curly black hair in them. I was still charged for them even though I couldn't eat them and it put me off my food. Literally sick for the rest of my stay and regretted wondering... More

We were enticed in by a bit of hard sell outside and were offered a deal for the steak and chips. Nothing special about the chips but the steaks (5 of them) were utterly amazing, they literally melted in the mouth. I would avoid the jacket potatoes though, they had clearly been re-heated and the puddings were nothing special. If... More

Being on tour with friends, we should've took complete notice at the complete menu list and not been drawn by the specials they had on the menu. The meals were sub-par at best. Staff were friendly, but the restaurant was very quiet inside. Also, friends commented at the underwhelming meals they ordered.

I was quite disappointed as restaurant is a bit pricey and meat wasn't a great quality one. Both steaks were way overcooked,. It is a concern especially with many other steak houses being around with much better meat and lower prices. Service was excellent tho.

My husband and I ate here on our first night in Amsterdam. We were drawn in by the special deal for 2 - sirloin steaks, fries, salad and a bottle of wine for €49.95, we were not disappointed. It was all delicious, fresh, well cooked and generous portions. The only reason I am giving 4/5 is that the staff were... More

This place is Argentine style - none of the staff were Argentinean and the style of the food was close, so all in all not entirely authentic. However it was good value and the chips were crisp and the steak was fine. Beware going all the way to the top floor to the toilets - the stairs are treacherously steep!

We love a good steak and they serve one of the best I have had in a long time. Service was fast and efficient with some friendly staff to be had as well. The food was excellent and served quickly as well.

Neighborhood Profile
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.
