“Great meat - shame about the wine”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

We ate there in the evening with a party of ten. The steaks were excellent, but the only snag was there is no mention that it does not serve any form of alcohol anywhere, at least that we could see, and the staff don't mention it when they seat you. Strange policy because the meat really deserves to be served with a good Argentine red to bring out the flavour.

“Very good meat but you'll smell like fried oil when you leave...”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

The meat is pretty good and the cooking is really according to what you ask.
The meat quality is comparable to the Rodeo restaurant also in Eindhoven.
The service is good. The waiters always ask you if you need anything or if everything is fine.
It might happen that they forget one meal in larger group...
The decoration is a bit weird though.
They do not serve any type of alcohol beverages, which is disappointing.
The major lowlight for me is that the do not seem to have a proper fume cupboard where they cook... which result in you strongly smelling like fried oil when you leave the restaurant... definitely a no go for me.

“Perfect steak, friendly service”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

When you start to order, you get your first surprise: they do not serve alcohol here. First I needed to adjust to this concept, but after a while I believed this is great: In this way you can more concentrate on the food, which is delicious. Steaks are served with a large amount of fries.
The furnurture and setting is modern and fresh; they play latin music. Staff is very friendly, sometimes a little clumsy, but I believe this is because the place is still young.

“No alcohol, slow service and meat not cooked as ordered.”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

Range of 5 levels of cooking to choose from suggests that the chef knows what he is doing. Ordering a medium cooked sirloin steak resulted in raw meat being served. They also don't serve alcohol which not acceptable for a restaurant these days.
Service was very slow and the ambiance does not invite to stay the entire evening, more like some fast food joint.
