After wandering around the city, tired and hungry, we stopped at this restaurant. It was not our first choice, but all the good ones were booked, as it was saturday evening. We all ordered steak or entrecote. The meat was hard to cut, the service was pretty poor, the restaurant was smelly (after going out we were smelling like we... More

We craved for steak and what better to do then have an Argentinian one? Well the advice for this tourist trap is to skip it. The place looks so-so. Bare in mind that it's the tourist area so no high standards were expected but even still.... the staff was rude. Slammed 2 menus on the table, did not ask for... More

We stopped here attracted by the menu outside offering a fish barbecue menu for about 25€. The "menu" was a single plate of different fishes and some (not so fried) fries. Fish was not tasty, the only nice thing was the sauce that came with it. My partner had some meat but that also wasn't nice. The only positive point... More

We fancied moules and the guy outside said they have them. Once inside the rude waitress said they didn't and we had to ask a couple of times and eventually they said they had some. Had the ones in white wine and some prawns - both tasteless. I thought the Belgians can cook but these guys definitely can't. I think... More

Went for dinner here while on a business trip. Service was good and we were never left waiting for long. I had a steak and frites. Steak was a massive chunk of meat cooked exactly the way I asked. The sauce was nice too. Please was clean and tidy. Although the sink toilets were a bit confusing :-) Prices were... More

Dined with a work colleague. Lots of restaurant choices in our vicinity, but decided on a steak house and the staff were great. very friendly - couldn't do enough for us. Very attentive. Food was great - soup was homemade and steak was perfectly cooked. Definitely recommend.

So, basically what many have pointed out here. Service is ok, location is pretty much downtown, but the steaks are definitely not like the Argentinian ones as advertised. I also thought it was way overpriced. Only do it if you can afford and all the other ones are crowded.
