Whilst visiting the Amersfoort Jazz Festival, we came across this relatively small restaurant. We were able to get a table without a reservation. The staff were all friendly & the premises very clean. We just had steaks which were cooked to perfection! The chef came into the restaurant and spoke to all of the people seated. What a pleasant chap!... More

I had shrimps in some sort of tomato sauce. First I thought the portion was too small but combined with the bread and the fact you can get your own salad at the salad bar it turned out to be enough (I did not even went to the salad bar). This was a very recommendable dish, i loved it. The... More

Visiting family in Amersfoort we were taken as guests to this lovely restaurant. The service was outstanding and the food was exceptional. Great wine selection. The owner came to our table to chat and check to see if everything was to our satisfaction, which often doesn't happen. You can also have a smaller portion of beef if the regular size... More

We have been there with a group of 18 people. We reservated a place to be sure to get some seats. The waitress was very friendly and did a great job. The Steaks were absolute delicious and also the starters with the special sauce. The only downside was that some of the steaks were not grilled/roasted as ordered. I can... More

We have been here before and apparently my little group likes stability. And again, the steak was juicy and good. I had the Bife de lomo al morron. I asked for medium-rare and I received medium-rare. That's not always a given! Fries and salat from salat bar were ok. Good and pleasant service. One of us tipped over a beer... More

We recently had the pleasure of dining here. From the moment we entered we were greeted with friendship and helpfulness. Fons and Kelly were the best front of house team and spent time explaining the menu and nothing was too much trouble. Their English is impeccable and both have a great sense of humour. The food I cannot praise highly... More

We travel a lot around the world, but live in Amersfoort. Once a month we eat at el Ternero. The meat is of excellent quality. The waiters are good. The ambiance is good. If you want to eat good meat for a good price, this is the place to be in Amersfoort.
