This restaurant is only 5 minutes from where I live but last night was my first visit to one of Amsterdam’s most popular restaurants. It is known as “carnivore heaven” and receives consistently high praise for its food. I was looking forward to my first visit. Service was fast, friendly and efficient despite being very full. The mixed grill (Espetada... More

This place used to be great, best meat, perfectly grilled, a good bottle of wine in a non formal setting with typical Amsterdam service (unfriendly with a smile). Nowadays, it feels like they are taking some short cuts here and there. The meat is less tasty and not as well prepared, the spare ribs, which used to be the best... More

Beautiful fillet steak cooked to perfection. Salad and baked potatoes are an additional cost to the steak as this is just served with sauces on the side. Washed down with a lovely bottle of wine. Lovely evening with friends watching canal life.

The service was friendly and warm and they had no issues with allergies my wife had. We both ordered the steak... More
