I grew up in Floride, but this lobster has won the highest award in my foodie journal. The room itself sets the stage for a culinary delight. The service is professional & friendly for Amsterdam.

We visited for our first anniversary. I can say it was amazing I had lobster and my husband had surf and turf. The food was brilliant the service very good. Although the menu was very limited the quality was good.

This restaurant specializes for steak and lobster. Both were amazing! Very good meat and well prepared. Reservation is a must, all of their tables are booked in advance usually. People were walking in from the street but had to be turned down. The decoration is pleasant, a romantic, french style atmosphere. They have really great wines on the wine card.

Turned away the first time because we didn't make reservation. Wow, were we glad that we returned. My wife had lobster and I had half lobster/steak. Cooked to perfection, and the service was good.
