“Fantastic Food.....BUT.....Crap Service.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2012

The title of this review sums it up. Had the service been better it would have received an "excellent in all respects" and five *****.

However the quality of the steaks goes a long way to negating the poor service.....WELL WORTH A VISIT.

“Best Argentinian Steak House”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2012

OK, so the waiter is a little like the "Soup Nazi" from Seinfeld, but when your steak is this cheap and so damn good i guess you can afford to have a little attitude... i've been visting Amsterdam for 10 years now, and every time i make sure i hit up Argentinos for a filet or sirloin steak at least twice. Their cuts of beef are awesome and cooked to perfection - no sauce needed! It's quite a small restaurant but turnover is high... the service is not for "Food Snobs" used to having their behinds cleaned for them by staff, but it doesn't bother me, a waiter is there to take my order and serve my food not pay me pleasantries - i'm there for great steaks at a reasonable price...

go for a side of fried onions with your steak!

“Good meal close to the action.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2012 via mobile

For some reason there are a thousand Argentinian restaurants in Amsterdam, so it is hard to choose. We chose this one on sight because it looked busy and had nice decor and gave us a nice view of the street. The staff were very friendly and the service was very prompt. We both ordered a steak special for 11 Euros which came with a small steak, salad and fries, and it hit the spot.
