The steak was the best I have ever had, and I have eaten at Ruth Chris' Steakhouse in Southern California. There are lots of places to eat, particularly steakhouses in Amsterdam, but I am really glad we decided on this one. The service was excellent and the food absolutely wonderful.

Had dinner here with friends, who reserved with Groupon. It was only 12,50€ pp. Very cheap actually. Had the tomatosoup as a starter and the rump-steak as main. It was not bad, nice ambiance, service was correct but not friendly. I know, shouldnt be expecting too much for the price we paid.

My husband claimed that the steak he ordered at Alberto's was the best he had ever tasted. It was cooked to perfection. The baked potato was excellent as well. We had an excellent meal, with a friendly waitress who made it even more enjoyable. The ribs were great too.

Had a quiet lunch in an almost empty restaurant, burgers were brilliant maybe a bit too much salad though. Staff were nice just not very quick.

On a street with many eating places, you can feel pestered by people trying to wrangle you into their establishments. Alberto's however, didn't give us a pressure sell, the guy on the door simply claimed it was the best steak in the street. I didn't compare with the others but I can say with conviction that the meat here was... More

Alberto's is situated in a popular area of Amsterdam, not very far from Vondel Park and quite close to the Flower Market. We had an absolutely delicious lunch there, with beer on the house. The portions are large and very tasty. We could choose from a varied menu. Also, the prices are very good, less expensive than other restaurants of... More

Went for dinner as I wanted to sample a Uruguayan-styled steakhouse. No issue getting seating. Was served promptly. Food was satisfactory for the price but nothing really to shout about. They have a set/promotional menu that may be more value for money. Ambience was ok though if you sit outside there's lots to see as the walking street is quiet... More

I think my views of this restaurant are slightly skewed by the fact my meal wasn't quite what I expected. I ordered chicken satay and expected chicken in a peanut sauce but it came with a chocolate sauce which was nice and the chicken was well cooked and my friends steak was cooked more to her liking than in other...
